The Launch T-bar features the 2-piece design the Pro SS is made with, except the Launch takes it a step further. First, we start out with 6061 Billet aluminum strut & fuselage and joing them together via a mortise & tenon style joint. The Fuselage is pocketed, the strut inserted into it and the bolted into place with 2 - 3/8" x 1" bolts coming in from each side of the fuselage. The Launch T-bar is 10 " longer that the Pro SS, giving you more "wet strut length" making much bigger air easier, and even softer landings too! This is a solid design that performs great, is easy to assemble and disassemble, and makes traveling with your Sky Ski much easier since it can be broken down to fit into smaller luggage.
