How do u suggest checking it? Pulling the dyneema out of the plastic? How to get it back in?
I have taken some pictures of disassembly/reassembly of my two Flysurfer Infinity XX bars. They are also using Duotone parts.
Both do still look okay after somewhere above 100 hours of combined saltwater and sweetwater use. There seem to be different generations of the click-in fitting with/without the small middle plate, maybe also different materials?

some vendors used - at least for a while - see through plastic tubes - what a great and simple idea to increase safety.

This is also one of the reasons why I don't like tubed depower lines - you never know what is happening inside.

Tubed depower lines with transparent sleeving are available - if you make your own frankenbar. See my post and my suggestion to North

I took apart my oldest rope slider and the rope has no wear. I’m less impressed with the metal end which has some rust and I can see what looks like two u shapes welded together.
