Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Guys used this thing when making their own bars way back. http://www.reliancemarine.com/Product/2171/Plain-Bearing-Stanchion-Mounted-Fairlead-AL0455/View.aspx Mmmm IDK about this thing, I'd think that you want a cleaner setup no more crap added to increase the chances of a slacked line getting caug...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

The question is, does the bar need a hole in it for the depower line, can this line be run through an eye on the side of the tube rather than through the tube. Makes for a much stronger bar with no added weight to restrengthen it after boring a bloody great hole through the centre. Without going in...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Yes, you will give up a bit but You can also get the whole setup too close Elbows hit hips & no leverage when all the way in, Doable but unnecessary. Make sure you show us what you end up with... How close is too close depends on the harness being used - eg waist vs seat harness. I use a seat harne...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Not used that bar but it looks like it suffers from the same flaw. The more recent Cabrinha offering looks better and space for the release to work is built into the chicken loop: It does indeed! they've obviously learned something over the years, not sure if I'll add the spacer area right away to ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I think what they are saying is if the QR1 is jammed up against the bar and can NOT be pushed to be released it is/could be a problem. So you need a ball or something to keep the release away from the bar to leave some room for the QR to be able to always operate. Yeah.. no.. I got it what they're ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

You're correct, the BRM bar does make contact with the QR. However, on the BRM bar, QR # 2 (total release of kite) sits directly behind QR #1 (flagging). I believe the argument would be if you are unable to flag with QR #1, QR #2 is right there within your grasp. With your setup it would be two mor...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Tnx both JT and alford for your comments and makes a bit of sense, but I fail to see where would or could become a problem and in the interest of education not just being argumentative how is this any different from the BRM CR system? BTW do u guys see any issues with the 2 questions I had on my pre...
