Sorry that I started a tangent, but since this particular tangent is a direct consideration of this thread, I'll discuss this carbon fiber thing a bit further. It is an amazing material! Very strong for it's weight. Tensile strength is incredible. But we scientists refer to CF as "strong" but not "tough". In simple terms, it can handle incredible amounts of force when bending or stretching, but not nearly as much when exposed to compression or impact shock.Rotule wrote: why would you need something stronger than this carbon piece, if that piece is olded by two straps (seriously the weekest link is the straps not the bar a carbon piece this thick can take a shit load of tension and "flambing" (sorry not sure with my english on this one))
I agree with you that the whole setup still look a little bit prototype, but he's doing an awesome job and i'm sure he'll figure it out soon
