Where to get a pully bar?

Postby PH » Thu Jun 05, 2003 7:42 pm

:!:
I am looking for pully bars.
Where do I find out what works, who has them, where to compare etc.
Please let me know, since I am converting my setup to a pully bar system.
My guys are working on them right now, but I still like to get some info on them.
So, please let me know
Aloha

You can just make your own, thats what I did for a while.

The easiest way to do it to get one of the original Cabrinha bars 'cos they're easy to work with, rip the winders off and cut it down. For a sick bar go down to 14 inches, but never go over 17. Now bolt the winders back on the ends, making sure they look like they are pretty even.

Get some leader line and thread it through the hole, under your existing line that allready goes through there. Trust me, it fits and it works. Do not cut the line yet, thread it through a pulley, this is going to be the triangle bit. I suggest you use a Ronstan red eye pulley, they are strong and don't seem to corrode at all.

Now take the line through the other winder, and tie it off. This is what makes or breaks your pulley bar, because the shape of your triangle dictates the feel it gives. Definately go past 45 degrees from the bar to the line, or else it feels too erratic and clunky. The further out you pulley is, the smoother it feels and the slower your kite turns.

Then just attach a depeower strap above the pulley and make the outside leaders equal to the pulley leader and Bob's your half-brothers-sister-in-laws-friends-puppy-sharron, who pumps your gas at BP.

last year's Wipi 2-line bars work well, too, i borrowed a pulley from a slingshot bar and bought a Airush depower strap.

The new Slingshot pulley bars are really good, for a stock pulley, these are the best, no way too fast or clunky, just smooth and a nice low diameter bar.
