Re: Short Leash Vs Long Leash

This is sooo 2010 I've been cutting and resewing my leashes to be short since my first year. .

Next there will be a tutorial on how to hook your short leash to the back of your harness ;)

What's the little clip attached to the bar rynhardt?

Also would it make more sense for the rope to move through the hole in the low friction ring rather than around the edge?
I think that clip is for auto unwind. just push the bar out and it will unwind the trim line?

Hey Toby

So how does it work if you go outside of the 2000' limit, how does it find you again when you come in closer or say you get blocked by waves, will it find you again?

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Impressions

I couldn't even get my kite to roll with any technique. I can relaunch our FLITE's (GEN4 and GEN5) in 5 knots no problem. Maybe they improved the relaunch from the Gen3 to Gen4? I have the Gen 4 and cannot imagine relaunch under 7-8 knots. Which technics do you use ? Maybe its relaunch is good and ...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Impressions

I have the OR Flite's (2015) 7.5, 10, 12, 14.5 They are my main go to kites for KBH. I usually fly them with 28 m lines. In the air they are easy to depower and pivot nicely for transitions. Like Regis-de-giens my only negative is that I find them hard to relaunch in 8 kts and under. The easiest re...

Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

In the beginning of this thread, the OP said: "I have done a brummel/ eye splice ( passed rope through itself twice to lock then taper and bury the end) That sounds like: maybe not a Brummel splice. In a Brumell, tbe tail goes through tbe main then the main goes through the tail. Then the tail gets...

Re: Kite Bars with other brand kites

All line sets from about 2010 onwards are equal line and pretty much all control bars will attach to all kites now. Pretty much all modern kites will work with #5 type of control bar, so you can swap just about any bar and kite nowadays (attaching the necessary pigtails) This is true except for Oce...
