Re: Please measure your line lengths!

Ozone line lengths are correctly described, it is Slingshot who are incorrectly describing their line lengths. I think "correct" is relative here. I would prefer to know the length of lines from end of leader lines to pigtails. For example, perhaps I will choose to put slingshot lines on an ozone b...

Re: Anyone else dodging "flying fish"?

I haven't dodged flying fish but they've dodged me many a time while sailing out beyond the reef in Barbados to pick up an incoming wave. While you're stuffing upwind flying fish will sometimes fly right past you, I guess because they think you're a large predator so they take to the air.

Re: Please measure your line lengths!

Wish I'd known that before getting Ozone 23m lines because Ozone 25m lines are nearer in length to Slingshot 23m lines which is what my brian (sic) is dialled into with my Enduros. Live and learn. Dude Ozone should absolutely switch the lines for you if you paid full price for the lines. Send them ...

Re: Please measure your line lengths!

Another variable: bridle length. That can also add up to several meters in line length between different brands and model kites. Some have an almost direct connection to steering line pigtails on the kite where others have really long bridles. So comparing a short bridled kite on a 23m ozone bar to...

Re: Please measure your line lengths!

Being able to measure strings ought to be even easier than area, where brands also consistently fail to be able to give correct figures. Exactly. And it's one thing that I have never seen measured in tests so it's easy for a manufacturer to get a "more powerful" kite simply by increasing line lengt...

Re: Please measure your line lengths!

http://www.infexion.nl/info/vergelijkingstabel-barren/ Made an overview a few years ago, it is in Dutch but you can focus on the last column of the table. For example Airush advertises with 23m lines where the actual length from the end of pigtails to bottom of the bar was 1.14m longer. Ozone is th...

To the bar, not the leader lines.

Please measure your line lengths!

Recently switched from Slingshot bars with Slingshot 23m lines to Ozone bars with Ozone 23m SK99 lines. Kites felt a lot more direct and snappy. Decided to recalibrate an Ozone bar this morning and suddenly realised that I was standing a good bit nearer to the hook the lines were on than I was used ...

Re: Core kites and kiteboarding industry sales this year

I would say God would be more on iriejohn side, just "facepalming" with regards to the whole thing. And spewing hate for those who hold religions views, in opposition to yours and mine, is not an effective way to enlighten them. It just makes us look like a-- holes, and creates extreme resistance t...

Re: Which Kites and lines lenght are most people using for 30 to 50 knots

81kg. 6m Ozone Enduro V2 with Ozone 23m lines on Lieuwe Shotgun 136 x 40.5

Above 35 knots I don't bother.

In 50 knots? Sorry, that's Storm 10, the OP is having a laugh! :lol:
