Re: Core XR5 high bar pressure?

My impression initially was higher bar pressure as well. But there is the setting on the wing tip. I've put it on lightest on my XR4's so I had to do it as well on the 12m XR5 but decided to leave it in the medium (factory default) on the 9m. I think the XR5's just simply pull more and that might ad...

Re: Is the 9 mtr XR5 the best kite on the planet for us average joes who like to jump?

Hey, are you guys actually interested to hear from XR5 riders? If yes, I can give my impressions. 9m is really super sweet. Low end is strong and jumping strong even moderately powered. Did 35ft jumps on it in moderately powered conditions. Can't wait to see what it does when I am loaded on that thi...

Re: Core xr5?

First few sessions on 12m and 9m XR5 done. I have yet to be fully juiced on the 9m. First up 9m. Very solid pull, great feel where the kite is. Jumps very well even moderately powered. Turning is easy as I'm used to from the XR5. On first impression very similar to XR4. 2nd session on 9m. Moderately...

You are not very likely going to see any deep discounts. Not Core's philosophy.

Re: Core xr5?

Evolution is good! The best kites on the market have evolved over many generations. That's what makes them great. I see bridal changes and they mention a smaller diameter LE, plus reshaped wing tips. Most surprising is the addition of one more pulley. I was kind of hoping less of them. Oh well. Soun...

Re: Stainless steel pins used in leash quick release

I was just not sure if they are strong enough as the main release system on the center line. I plan to use it instead of the chicken loop for a direct connection. I don't want it to fail 40ft up in the air ;)

Re: Stainless steel pins used in leash quick release

I'm looking for an economical solution. Otherwise there are plenty options taking expensive parts and butcher them. These pins must be used for something else. Just got to learn what they are called.

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

If I don't have Cabrinha mushroom lying around, do you guys know where I can get this kind of eye pin to construct a quick release with tube and pin? Not sure what they are called beside the skydiving closing pins, but I think these skydiving pins are too thin? Anyone done a QR from scratch? This gu...

Re: Stainless steel pins used in leash quick release

Getting back to this topic. Anybody know where to get these pins that are solid enough for our custom quick release build? Don't feel like butchering expensive Cabrinha leash for this small part. It's got to be available for purchase somewhere!
