Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

^ Simple question, what is a jump for you? But I just told you, we, who are using super thin lines would be all dead? Would you really stop Nico (world Champ), before he jumped 10-15m on FS race lines in front of 500 people? Would you? Common, be real and ask yourself that question. Coz FS is saying...

Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

You are again patronizing, however with a bit of 'toned' response, which is slightly better. But still not polite enough. It can be learned, not to worry. In response to??? I am not trying to berate you because I very much appreciate your post. It adds discussion and gives kiters an idea of the men...

Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

Really quick, and I'll address the rest of your post directed at me later: Do you understand the concept of wear over time vs breaking strength. Specifically the example of 200kg lines worn to 50% of their original strength yield 100kg breaking strength, and 300kg lines worn to 50% of their origina...

Nothing. Just leave it. The best way to reattach any valve is from the inside anyways that way the aur pressure is helping to keep the valve on instead of pushing it off
And how exactly he would put it from inside? :bye:

Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

Difference between 160kg and 200kg back lines is pretty minimal... I think I would be more nervous if I was a chunky f***er - at 65kg I'm pretty happy with either 300/200 lines for my Flysurfer or 500/300 for my LEIs. Umm, that 20% difference, right? ;) Huge difference. But you're right, savings in...

Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

In your rage to frame me as a "Mr. knowitall", you have again demonstrated your inability to see what is right in front of you. The lower limit has been established, though it is not solid number. At 160kg, you are definitely good to go with regular replacement of the lines and NO JUMPING. At 200kg...

Re: Pinhole woes

If I may,

No one mentioned (or I did not see),

the higher inflation MIGHT destruct complete kite with LE explosion.

If pictures are needed, they are posted already on different thread.

So from one single pinhole you might end up with junk.

Be very careful with a pinhole and pressure.

Re: fuselage fabrication

Hmm u for real? :) Pwood is so soft and with 2 layers it would bend like hell. I would know, built 3 already. Used hard wood for last two and wrapped it in 7 layers around mast. 2 layers with 45/45. Now, that does not bend much. The test is to stand on it. If not,the fuse will break just behind the ...
