Re: Controller 2 - does not flag on release

Just read this post and checked my bar and it does seem to be very hard to pull the line through by hand now that you mention it. I've never had to release before. Just to be clear, when you're talking about drilling a bigger hole, you're talking about drilling through the middle of the metal swive...

Re: Controller 3 released - thoughts?

Haven't tried this bar yet obviously, but you have to like a company that listens to it customers, upgrades their

Re: Controller 2 - does not flag on release

Had the same issues with the single line flag out setup, so I switched to mini fifth. 90% depower upon release. I customized my set up by adding oshit handles to the flying lines and one to the single line flagout line. The oshit on the centreline is waxed so if i have to grab and release it SHOULD ...

Re: Ordering question

I ordered a nitro on March 18 (free shipping) and just received notice today that has been delivered to my pick up in the states. So 23 days, most of the time seemed to be spent in American customs.
