Question on Slingshot 2014 new Compstick Bar

Postby old school » Tue Mar 18, 2014 5:09 pm

QUESTION - I see from Slingshots new video (on just the bar) that the center hole looks to be the same material on both sides - does anyone know if they have gone to solid steel or solid aluminum insert??

I have been looking to replace my current bar because the center hole is shredding my power/depower line (stupid design of 1/2 plastic and 1/2 aluminum and the fine sand on our beach eats the plastic side resulting in a sharp edge on the aluminum)

Does anyone know? (just looking for answer on the Slingshot, not suggestions on other bars to buy)

I have 2 2014 SS comp bars. Solid aluminum alloy, nicely shaped to prevent snagging/jamming and line wear. Top is shaped to keep fingers from being pinched.

I have been riding SS RPM for three years. After few months bar's center hole starts greatly affect on rope. Firstly, it deformates itself than starts wear down rope. So average life time 3-4 months for depower rope if ride actively.
