Just snapped my second standard dakine 10 inch spreader bar in two years. They both gave at the weld between the hook itself and the bar. First one only gave on one side so I could gingerly ride back to shore, but this latest one just went PING and dissapeared. Wasn't that far out and swam in. Had a piece of dynema and an ss ring in the car so rigged up a sliding system to get back out on the water and it worked fine, but I gotta say I dont like being locked in. Is there a forged spreader bar or composite spreader bar on the market? Freaks me out that a spreader can go on you without warning.
Get off Da Kine spreaders/ hook crap....it has happened to everyone...old news
Now if you got washboard 6 pack abs i will suggest you Mystic Warrior II or III
Hook is unbreakable off the spreader....and will stay in position over your waistline...zero riding up
Make sure you get correct size....size small is for waist size 30 to 32...i am 31
...i know you do not care much for Supa....that's my 2 cents anyway....
