Hey guys don't know how many of you use slider bars for wave riding but north and Ion just bought out a beast.
The problem i found with the dyna bar was that by the time i added the, slider rope /pulley and chicken loop,i found that i had lost all my throw on my bar. Having shorts arms does not help either.
North have come up with a small chicken loop with a metal guide that attaches straight onto the rope on your slider. Awesome kit. This gives you all of the throw back on you're bar plus the chicken loop gives friction on the rope. This stops it from jumping around on the rope like a pulley does. Toe side is so comfortable with this kit !!!!!!!

I have been using the metal slider bar on my Dynabar, lasts forever, doesn't stretch, always feels the same...

the talon is a nice idea. In saying that though, most people have gone away from the old dyna slider bar with hook and use the rope version.

Mystic bought out the Two face sliding bar harness, was OK until the material covering the plastic guie tubing wore out then the bar would jump out of the track. I've been running the Slingshot talon for a while now one my rope slider, using it for foiling and wave kiting, can't beat it top bit of kit.
