I guess I have to be ok to ditch the kite in case of an emergency, been riding this mode for the last 6 years on my previous Hifi/Nirvana kite, not saying that I won't get in a shitty situation. My question was more if someone done it or if it's just a bad idea and better just tape my fingers and change the line every now and then.
Can make you a fifth line out of 500kg flying line with 4mm tubing if you have the exact length.
Here is an example on a North bar. But the hole in the bar is a bit on the small side compared to other brands so the tubing can hinder the movement of the bar when it gets wrapped around the bigger depower rope with tubing. On other bars it is no problem at all and it depends on your riding style if it annoys you on a north bar.
Are you asking if anyone has removed the bar's safety system and how they did it on a forum? If so, your not likely to get many responses condoning the idea. Liability and all. So, If you want to ride set up to ditch the kite as your primary release, your kinda on your own. In reality, if your competent enough to ride that way and truly not put others at risk, aren't you competent enough to figure out how to mod your bar??? After all, it's pretty much just using scissors.
Thanks for the replies Evan and Coldweatherkiter, I didn't even consider the coating of the line which of course is the best idea to keep the safety system.
And thanks Starsky for your opinion as well, figuring it out I wouldn't have any problems with, but always good to get inputs and opinions and other ideas like the coating before starting to modify. This I now got, cheers!
No worries. Most of my posts are written in the jaded spectrum. The phrase: making a great bar even better is tricky language when your speaking to the masses. Many on here have no clue. Was not writing to shit on you in particular, but more post a point of view to dissuade the less experienced from making poor choices. There are people asking inappropriate questions on here all the time and simply answering with a "how to" as apposed to a "why would you want that?" or a "that might not be a great idea" might not serve the greater good.
I used to not care whatsoever, to each their own, but at some point some idiot will go out overpowered and rigged suicide and cost the rest of us our access. To avoid that, I will gladly offer up a little sarcasm.
Speaking of. Why do you want to cut out the red safety line from running through the bar in the first place? What issue are you solving?
