Big issue w/ Mystic clicker 3.0 spreader bar!

Postby av_dumitrascu » Sun Oct 14, 2012 7:10 pm

I have used a couple of hours the new Mystic 3.0 clicker spreader bar and had a hard time catching my breath....when back on shore, SUPRISE (or should I say: BAD surprise): the spreader bar twisted upwards, thus turning the hook vertically! Good thing it didn`t unhooked while out there in the waves with the Spleene X19!!!

Guys, any idea how I could set this issue? I really like the last clicker bar, Mystic being one of my favorite brands, so if there is something I can tinker to this spreader pad/bar, please advise me.

Many thanks!

Are you sure that your belt was tight and the "under" little belt was properly attached?

positive! The pad stayed on my waist, didn`t raised to my neck ;)
just that spreader bar twisted.....I have compared it with a regular Mystic spreader bar pad and indeed the bar on the clicker is twisting almost freely :(
the curve of the clicker is almost nonexistent, compared to the regular, and the stitches are loose on the clicker webbings :(

Am I mistaking that the hook is welded at a strange angle ...?

so, if nothing is broken, i think you just need to tighten up main belts and also "down system" belt.
i hope it'll help

don`t think so, the problem is the bar is swinging in the pad too freely, compared to any other spreader bar I have around, so I should find a way to tighten the bar in the pad somehow...but how?

I did read it.
But you didn`t mine...
If the welding is at bottom of the spreader bar tube /as I see it from the pic,and it`s quite strange/ the kite tension will force the spreader to twist..
That`s I meant...
