Thanks for the clarification. How does the safety spring work? Does it automatically engage when you deploy the safety or do you have to manually engage it.

Sounds fine if it is automatic!

Since the information online is blurry it is tough to tell what the unit actually does. My thought was that when people are practicing unhooked tricks you will never have a CL secure mechanism engaged (donkey dick, spring clip, etc.). However, if you can leave the hook uncluttered for easy unhooking but still not lose the hook in a safety deployment, then they've thought it through. :thumb:


when you pull the "trigger" the spring wich is in armed position springs out in 1/100 of a sec and secures the hook with the CL.not quite automatic .... reactive IMO :wink:

Does anyone will know when this will be available?

As I think Mystic harnesses come with a spreader bar today, will you be able to choose this over the standard bar? Just curious how they will package/price it.

I'd like to see it in person first, but I'll probably get one. I've been looking for a current system to replace my aging surefire.

If you are being dragged face down through the water and the bar is up around your face, I'm guessing this goes past your face in much the same way as a chickenloop does?

I've checked it (not tried it) and I find it a great idea as an safety additive. More safety never bothered anyone. In case, for any reason, the first safety system does not work, you can try this.

personally I feel this thing is not going to hold up for long against salt and sand, the construction doesn't look strong enough, especially the way some treat and use their gear

Great design!! :thumb:
Good point about the projectile and the failure area too....
They need to make something for folks who will opt for safety instead of the option of riding unhooked...
