Problem with Flysurfer Infinity bar

Postby Ned Divine » Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:14 pm

Whenever I backloop or frontloop, the safety line (fifth) places itself laterally to (instead of between) the front lines inside the hole in the bar. This makes the bar movement difficult and I assume it causes wear to the lines and safety release may not work properly. I can reposition it by pulling it medially (towards the center, between the front lines) but it is difficult and I risk my fingers a bit. Anyone else with the same problem? Any ideas from the Flysurfer team?
Also, there is rust after only 15 times in the water on a couple of metal bits of the safety release mechanism. Any ideas? Should it not be rust-resistant?
