Flysurfer infinity bar


Anyone have a flysurfer infinity bar with the clam cleat adjuster instead of the straps?

Very easy to swap out, new clam cleat is @20-25 bucks, and you'll need a longer length of depower rope. Added bonus is you can set the throw to your specific reach as you set it up.

Thank you Jeff but I'm a total newbie. Hoping for a factory one, if I cant find then maybe I'll try it. I appreciate it the help though!

Sure - hit me up if you end up going that direction - I can at least walk you through what I did. Changing to a cleat on that bar is fairly straightforward.
I rebuilt my Peter Lynn bar when I was a total noob, was a great experience. Took way longer than it should have, and I asked tons of noob questions here, but I got to understand how everything worked and now I modify every bar I own.

You're totally right. Sounds like the route I should take. What's the best source for parts ? I believe I've seen the depower rope on Ebay but dont know which one?

Hey - sorry - missed this post this weekend. Will maybe take some photos tonight. I think I got my parts at kiteboarding.com, but you can shop around for better prices I think - I just went for convenience at the time:
cleat
https://kiteboarding.com/proddetail.asp?prod=clamcleat&c...

depower line
https://kiteboarding.com/proddetail.asp?prod=fmk_chicken_loo...

trimmer ring
https://kiteboarding.com/proddetail.asp?prod=ronstan_ring

Maybe a stopper ball or 2:

You don't necessarily need the handle, and you can tie a knot instead of the stopper ball and leave some line hanging at the cleat.

Thank you Jeff. I'm going to have to think about this some more. Maybe I'm just gonna live with the bar I have. Or I'll get lucky and somebody has one ! I appreciate all your effort.
