Re: How to ruined your vacation with Core

Knot Core's Fault. Easy to make a kite more robust, but always trading weight. Lighter kites fly better. Kites, boards and people can all break. Whats new? Just tape it and ride it.

That can be fixed. A double-digit IQ can't be. Not even with Loctite or a thorough read of the instructions :allbegood:

Re: splicing advice

Thanks for the feedback. The splice is to be used on a Cab mushroom release pin QR mod and unfortunately I don't have room for a long bury. How much strength is lost on Brummel with a short 20x bury?

Re: splicing advice

How much load must it take? Assuming it's to take a high load ... How long is the free end of rope? If at least as long as 5/32" x 72 = 11" then use a regular splice.
