U.Go line mount on Slingshot lines

Postby ptben » Mon Feb 11, 2019 11:11 pm

Is anyone using the U.Go line mount on Slingshot lines with the standard U.Go locking rod? I’ve had a quick measure of the Slingshot centre lines and they seem thicker than 2mm on one side, and the locking rod seems very tight. I know the whole point of the locking rod is that it “locks” but it seems a bit too tight and I don’t want to damage the lines. Some of the U.Go sites mention a wider locking rod but others don’t.

You need to use the locking rod with the wider groove for thick lines like Slingshot or Switch for instance. If you are in the US/Canada, contact me and I will get you one.
