The 09 bar doesnt seem to be much improvment as I have 2 issues.

1) The donkey dick falls outs at least once per session - I cant quite work out why it is doing this I think it may be too long? I compared it to the 08 bar and it seems the same length. I will measure them to confirm.

2) The new Swivel. After doing backrolls / rotations and untwisting the lines sometimes the swivel wont swivel. I have to stop and give it a jerk and twist to get it swiveling again.

Anyone else had any of the above problems / solutions?

Had the DD come out once, don’t know how it came, thought i forgot to put it right.. looks like it can come out.. will pay attention next session.
No problems with rotations.
Try frontrolls next time.. wink

Sounds like the filling in the donkey dick has fallen out. Have a look and see if it’s hollow.

I have not had any issues with my dick. Never had it fall out once. Noticeably longer than last year.

As for the swivel nothing untoward to report at this time.

Please be VERY careful if you intend to modify the donkey dick with any form of “stiffener”.
We’ve tested this here at OR with terrible results.
Stiff Tips or sections on the donkey dick may bind/catch in the harness hook as it attempts to slide out of the enclosed harness hook. (this may happen when you activate your chicken loop quick release.)

The issue is likely with your harness hook. Some are more open than others, and as such can be prone to both the dick (and subsequently) the chicken loop popping out. Make sure it’s not stone cold, and then clamp it in a vice to close it up a bit.

With regards to the swivel, yours may need some lube, as in general the ‘09 swivel works very well in my own experience and from what I have observed.

I am testing this stuff out for sailing applications, and will also give it a go on the trim line and swivel to see if there is any benefit.

Richard are you saying the stiffener can impair the Quick Release action? Tricky!
