Glad to see they're finally switching to a single front line flag, but that still doesn't give the Cab pimps a free pass for lying all these years.
Note to OP- how is it great customer service if they did nothing about the problem and encouraged you to take the bar apart yourself? Sounds like some "mates" I used to know.
That said, I have a particular dislike for the MANY systems where the safety leash line must pass through one, or sometimes more than one, small holes, thereby creating a comparatively tight fit. In these cases, any increase in line diameter such as where 2 lines may be connected, may bind in the hole when there is not significant force .
Richard which safety systems do not have the flag out line go through a hole that's how the single line flagging system works, you have the 1.75mm kite line, the 2 or 3 mm flagging line and a 2mm or so big hole or swivel or stopper ball that the line goes through, naish, ozone, slingshot, liquid force, wainman and the rest of them, or you have a mini 5th line system where the "redline" whatever you call it goes through the system like the 2013 bars from best north or cabrinha here the tolerances can be a bit bigger, as the mini-5th is lark's headed to the swivel system at the top and then only needs to fit the the holes and tubes but it's not that large, somewhere between 2mm and 4mm. Or you can use a 5th line system it won't be troubled by seaweed much. But of the 4 line systems that's how they work they have to go through little holes.RichardM wrote: the MANY systems where the safety leash line must pass through one, or sometimes more than one, small holes, thereby creating a comparatively tight fit.
