Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

Or one could also use a smaller harness loop or a system like Fireball that is already about 8cm closer to the body without any tradeoff. The Fireball brings the bar "about 8cm closer to the body" than what? versus a standard loop system and a standard spreader bar. There is no "standard" loop syst...

Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

While I agree with your comments on the cloud system, and I believe the cloud system needs to be under tension to release which would not be awesome (someone can clarify), but I would never recommend a rope slider system to a beginner for a myriad of reasons not limited to the addition of one extra...

Re: Splicing tips?

I use Selma (push) Fids for rope down to 3 mm, for smaller rope than that I use a D-Splicer kit. I could use bent wire 'n stuff but I just like an easy life.

Re: LE bladder wear by elastic bladder retainer inside tip (Ozone)

I see. Or perhaps odd numbers that aren’t a prime :roll: I’m such a nerd I took a photo. I'm such a nerd that I measured the Enduro V2 bags: Height x width (cm) 6m = 57 x 33 8m = 57 x 33 10m = 64 x 39 12m = 64 x 39 So if your 9m is in a 64 x 39 bag then yes, it will be a bit big. Very well made bag...

Re: Splicing tips?

I could be completely wrong, but that looks like it might be 16 or 24 strand as opposed to 12 strand single braid which is really easy to splice.

Can you show a cleanly cut cross section please?

No CL/DD and something for rope slider could be interesting.

Gonna be a 30-35 knots day tomorrow, so probably gonna go for an overpowered session.
Too offshore here, be interested to hear how you get on (looks like it could well go over 40 knots) ...
