Re: Triple & quad ripstop

How is it possible that Naish has the new quadtex. exclusively? I would think they are just minor users compared to the overall market, whatever that is. Can a new fabric be developed, produced for such a small market?

I'll cherish my memory of landing "Stevos's hellfish" and it exploding in my hands. Those were the days !

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Hate to say it, but you're just in a major funk, new gear won't make any difference. Do what I did ,take some pills, its cheaper.

Re: Which is your preferred trim system?

Slingshot Guardian: Very few moving parts with cleat and thick bomb proof lines. Kept simple and easy to inspect.
