Good idea. But obviously still important to make sure the screw is fixed tightly and that the roller is intact. A small loop of 3mm Dyneema would probably be enough for an unexpected pin failure.tomatkins wrote:You could make a little "safety belt", similar to the ones Best kites use on their pullies. Then, if the pin comes out, you would not lose the hook. You would still lose the pin and roller, so you would have to keep one of each in your kit bag.
Just a suggestion.
Hi, we informed you that we sent it by mail and it could be lost.doc wrote:think i'm going to need it ,u never did send me that screw!
The bungee is 8mm and you could use a 10mm (or add a 4mm) elastic rope you can easily find in a sail shop. You can fix it using strong plastic zip ties, the spare ties coming with DYNABAR are sized for 8mm bungee.Windrider wrote:Question: How hard would it be to increase the resistance of the bungie? I like it fine as it is, but I let someone else use it for several sessions, and one of his comments was that he wished the bungie had more resistance. This would prevent it from shifting quite so unexpectedly. He is an excellent wave rider and also does a a good amount of jumping. He thought a stiffer bungie would make its movement a little more predictable. Something along the lines of a variable resistance so that it had more resistance as it went further to the side.
That could actually be a major positive characteristic of the Dynabar... some sort of tuning capability on the bungie or variable resistance mechanism. Not sure if you could work a good engineering solution to that, but the idea is an interesting one. Variable tension might be extreme, but a change from medium bungie to strong bungie might be do-able.
