Re: Wichard 2673
I just change the tiny line for the suggested Q-Power line. It fits
tight, and the extra length gives more option. I will do a sleeving
job, to increase the diameter, for a stopper ball.
The system I am working on is more looking like the "S2" system or
inspired from Wipika/Takoon style. The shackle is installed between
the loop and the bar. I feel better this way...
I will take a picture and post it when it is finished..
