I would really like some details on his trimming system. It sure looks great.
PINTXO bar it is great ! not only the backlinetrim.
have a look https://de.share-your-photo.com/ee6221c8e2, if u are interested.

works fine, once u get used to it. simple as can be.

one single backline right through the bar.
knot ladder attached to the middle, then put around the "centerhole"...

with a MAVERICK at the end, u won´t need it much often.
already depowers almost to nothing, when u sheet out.

I liked best the bar of Jyoder with the offset center made out of low-friction ring and I'm working on it (ordered the parts).
Have been using it multiple times a week for 1 year and no issues. I do think it might bind more with thicker depower rope as hole is round, not elliptical. I have PU tubing on my rope and when I crank the bar hard 90 degrees with big foil kite, it does bind a little bit, but so does any bar with a PU tube covered rope, right?
No issues with it binding due to rotating bar against offset hole.

Are you guys making the bar completely airtight or do you have a small hole somewhere? I am a bit scared my bar will crack if I bring it on a plane...

How much pressure difference you expect? If you fly to space into complete vacuum /closed at sea level/ it will have 1 bar internal pressure. You really think that 25mm carbon tube with more than 1 mm wall crack at 1 bar? :)

Where is a best place to buy a 22/18 carbon tube, online, shipped to Europe?
Thanks!
