As on all their bars they (still) use FL-10 from Teufelberger (recoded to Tarifa 340T in 2018). These 8 stain lines are 340N minimum. Indeed at the splice this number can be lower.

I made second batch of bars. This time with 1 centerhole. It was very easy. I used PVC pipe 22mm to make the center hole.
Looks great

I have not seen black PVC. Isn't that ABS?

Other option is nylon rod but that might be difficult to drill big holes (it will melt)
I think I would run water on the hole while drilling the nylon if melting is an issue.


Thx again for your response

Has anyone had a problem with 2017 Best Roca's tearing?

A friend of mine had 2017 5, 7 and 9m Best Rocas get a spontaneous canopy tear. I know that Best is gone for the most part and there is no chance for support. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this problem too.

Not interested in getting into a Best bashing fest.

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

This thread is all about losing the CLs but a lot of good info on QRs and slide setups here. Read a very sad story of a kiter who could not release his shackle and thought I’d share it here since a few posts/designs had incorporated wichard/shackle QRs. There are different "wichard" snap shackle de...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

These bars I made buying cheap chinese carbon tubes. Biggest one is 22ID, 25OD and 60cm wide. In the center there is reinforcement about 15-20cm. All the way to 15mm. So the carbon is 1cm thick around the whole. Just glued those tubes together with good epoxy. Waited few days and then drilled the h...
