Glad you are ok! If that would've happend to me, I'd probably switch brand or start windsurfing If you have tips on how you did the self rescue, I'm all ears.Sun wrote: ↑Mon Mar 11, 2019 2:15 pmI snapped a click bar line in Cape Town during a jump. No issues falling back to the water luckily, but the self rescue back was less fun. The bar was used but not abused. Snapped at a larks head in the middle of the front power line. On the same trip, had another guy I was riding with snap one of his lines on the Click bar too.
The dealer in CPT hinted at new lines coming, so this Instagram post seems legit.
About damn time. All I want to make the Click bar perfect is the Ozone Click In loop and to replace those shitty, terrible, atrocious lines.

Are we talking 2 years/10 months of holiday/long weekend kiting or 3-4 times a week?jespin4845 wrote: I snapped a click bar after 10 months of use, shit lines
Those are ozone lines, right? I messaged two guys for a quote on changing the lines on our 2 clickbars but now I'm considering selling the bars and preordering the new ones, which I wouldn't do normally to save money. In this case it wouldn't make much a difference money wise if the new lines are good!POACHER wrote: I would welcome the improvement.
My friend and I got 2017 Click Bars pretty early on. I had nothing but issues with mine and his were fine. Mine stretched really bad, needed constant tuning, and frayed to the point of being unsafe to use. (very similar use as my friend too) Love the bar, hated the stock lines.
I did remove those lines, sent the bar to Kiteboarding.com and had them redo the bar with Q-Power Pro 22m w/ extensions. Now this bar is incredible. There's really a tangible improvement. Not cheap, but I'm not second guessing my lines on a kite loop now either. These should last awhile.
I did just buy a new 2017 Click bar as a backup bar, off of Ikitesurf a couple weeks back. I have a new 2018 line kit to put on it, but I'll try the stock 2017 lines and see if these are good or bad. It's entirely possible there was a production run of these that maybe had suspect lines go out.
Even though our bars are only 5 months old, I'd rather invest a bit extra to not have a nightmare trip.
My gut feeling was something around 8 to 10%, would match your guess aswell. The shops I asked about the lines always told me the same answer: changing the lines would only increase cost significantly (!) and that the lines are fine.Faxie wrote:That would be 50,- extra...
Here is a clip from Lasse, he is already on the new dice prototype with probably one of the new bar/line combo. At least that is my guess, it doesn't say so on his upload! https://www.instagram.com/p/Bu4B_oSHifa/
