Finished the bar
Mostly North components to keep the mating simple.
What I've done.
Used North 2011 CL & Bar, cleat, Stopper ball and depower handle.
Added North Microloop & Hook upgrade.
Used 4 mm Amsteel power line and pulled it through Teleflex Marine pilot tubing with an inside diameter of 3.6 mm (Semi hard plastic tubing) That was a PITA!
Filed the bar hole out and polished it to accommodate the new sheathed powerline. (Bar wouldn't spin properly before)
Added new Switch Bar line attachments.
Added Switch front line swivel.
Spliced 1.5 feet of 3 mm Amsteel back into the end of the depower line. (For better grab on the cleat. 4 mm was too small and I worried about it slipping)
Made a stopper ball out of 1/2" nylon stock
Made a front line leader from 4 mm Amsteel
Drilled out the bar stopper ball and drilled out the stopper ball lock to allow for the larger and stiffer powerline to operate in it.

Still waiting on the post office to deliver the Q-line.
I think I'll try to feed the Q-line (single front line flag out) through the bar and CL but not through the bar stopper. Ill go outside that.
I intend to power the flag front line with the nylon stopper ball.
It will have one small figure 8 or overhand knot at the nylon stopper. I imagine the knot will be 3 mm thick and should easily pass through the 5 mm hole in the CL when I release.
If that does not work flawlessly, then I'll go with my original plan of making a side leash mod on the CL.

I'll let you know how it works out.
I'm hoping to get 2 or 3 years or 500-600 sessions out of this setup before needing to replace anything. Seems bombproof anyway.
