Weird problem with DD2 Slingshot Bar....

Postby bavdrftr318 » Wed Jun 30, 2010 6:06 pm

Anyone else have this problem? The bearing in between the chicken loop and the front line unspinning system is lubricated so well from the factory that when I go to unhook the chicken loop spins around all awkward which makes it a little bit of a hassle to hook back in. I never thought having a bearing working TOO well would be an issue :lol: . Is there any way to make it spin a little less freely than by shoving sand and grit down in there? :o

steal a hair bungee thingy from your girlfriend and put it (wrap it) over the "seam" where the parts meet. it'll still spin but have a bit more resistance.
