Imba I think the other answers have explained that I have done.
But if it can help others put the pictures here ...

I always use the four lines bar North with loop terminations.

I have made knots in the lines of the kite that had loop

So I have all kites prepared for the bar North.

Looks like you have a knot in one of the front lines. :duh: Tap it with a hammer and work it out. :smash:
Nice setup.

Toby as I understand it you don't use the microloop when doing a rotation. Why is that. Which tricks do you use microloop for and which ones don't you use? What are the reasons for the differences?

All tricks without rotation I use the microloop.

Almost all tricks with rotation and no hands on the bar I use the microloop (few with stopper)

All rotations with one hand on bar no microloop, because I have my right hand on the bar which has more power than left and can hold down or sheet out when I need.

Using here the ML will be more of a hassle than it would be useful.

Toby, can you start selling the iron heart also for us that dont have the north bar?
so you have the "complete upgrade kit" for all of us :thumb:
I am sure most bars can be upgraded easily, and most bars are strong enough to have 2 tiny holes drilled in them.

I will buy one for sure :D

Good idea, will ask North.

The new North bars have been tested for stability with two holes and are fine.

Just make sure that the holes from top need to be a bit wider then the lower part so the plastic at the end of the microloop gets stuck.

Maybe we should start a petition online or ask them all by email to integrate their micro loop again in 2015 bars and offer a set again?
