Re: Anyone have TSA issues having kite gear in their carry on flying?

It's going to be variable at best, I never risk it. Can you put your spreader bar, bar and pump in your check in and load your hand luggage with clothes? I would think the harness without spreader would be ok. They get their knickers in a twist over 120ml of liquid, so anything hard in your hand lug...

Re: weird Powerlines, need help !

The centre lines (white) should have knots and the outer lines red and black/grey should have larkshead loops - (The standard Cabrinha ones also have a small black tab on the loops). Are you sure the red & Black lines can't make loops, maybe they have been pulled tight and dried hard. If you have pi...

Used it yesterday 25knts and 11m and was one of my best sessions of the year.
Doesn't feel that small under foot, pops and stonks up wind.
Overall very impressed.

I dunno - seems to me charging straight along a wave, on a TT, at speed, through an area with surfers waiting in the line-up isn't kosher.

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2017 versus 2018?

Thanks for the heads up. Exactly the same Kite except the new Ripstop Dacron. If you can get a Switchblade 2017 produced after December 2016, its completely the same because Cabrinha upgraded the Dacron while producing the 2017´s BTW: I like the fact that Cabrinha keeps the same Shape since 2016 bec...

Re: Ozone bar new graphic

+1 If you have or have had other bars, it is likely the predominantly black side of the bar (during many years) was/is on the right hand side (Cabrinha, OR, Naish etc.. ) So why do Ozone now make it on the left? As an industry you guys should be working to some guidelines to improve safety. Isn't it...

Cabrinha Switchblade 2017 versus 2018?

2017 now being discounted, 2018 new'ish out.
Looks like fine tweaks + High tenacity Dacron, what ever that is?
Anyone with side by side experience and opinions?
Is the 2018 worth it?

Thanks

Your weight isn't really relevant.
What a load of bollox! How much do you weigh?
I’ve kited weighing between 103 and 117 kg and the difference is huge in just about all aspects.
Also see Tones comments.

Re: Mystic Clickerbar 4.0 - Surf

Thanks for that Yoda.
I had a dynabar years ago and the reach was way too much.
I am now looking at this Mystic option, assuming I can shorten the rope ok, I may go for it.
Was looking at the NP tracker, but that got a poor review on here, for corrosion and feel.

Mystic Clickerbar 4.0 - Surf

Has anyone had chance to try one of these yet?
I'm keen to know how far the metal ring extends out under load, compared to a regular hook.
