Make your own sliding spreader bar (like a dynabar)

Postby windyway » Mon Apr 09, 2012 8:13 pm

Some years ago I saw a "spreader rope" with a sliding shackle.
The cheap shackle didn't need to be a safety release,
because the primary release was still the standard chicken loop.

Does anybody have a do it yourself design,
that provides a simple and effective sliding mechanism?

Its not that much cheaper though than buying the Dynabar rope system.

Why only 6 inches of travel. Why not give it the same travel as the Dynabar?

the absence of a frame will allow the line to choke your waist under load.. IMO not a desirable thing to happen. you can prove it for yourself if you get n the water and send your kite into a kiteloop while body dragging. It's also possible the rope will spin and make the "touniquet" effect around your waist even worse so be careful.

My Dynabar V-7, has a FULL 12 inches of travel, (305mm).

It has a Nice Soft frame that my belly Likes !

It has a Big Hook to attach my chicken loop to.

It's got a Pulley to make the travel Really SMOO00oooth !!

And 321 kiteboarding will sell Ya the V-7 for $87.99 ---

Hardly worth the effort to make your own ; "Especially", if Ya Screw-Up

HA -- YEA :D

But i'll be the First to copy a Mod if someone can improve on
the V-7.

I'll even Pay-Pal the money for a six-pack of Beer
to the guy that comes up with a Mod i would even
want to copy.

I've seen some seriously Crappy work that people have posted
& they seam to be All Proud of it ??
