I see. Or perhaps odd numbers that aren’t a prime :roll:

I’m such a nerd I took a photo.
Looks like a 10 would fit those bags just nicely. :lol:

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

Ok understood re the sand inside abrading the bladder when deflated and packed down; I had naish kites before with same Boston valves but no problems, although I soon switched to ozone so maybe I didn't have them long enough. So the slow leaks may be Boston related or retainer related - I will chec...

Re: How To Self-Land a Kite in High Winds

Self landed my 6m in 30 knots yesterday (nobody else around). As usual used maximum trim, flew low to the edge of the window until the wingtip rested on the sand, then pulled rapidly on the top front line while walking quickly towards the kite. Often goes tits up over 20 knots so I was very surprise...

Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

For the reasons below, I believe the Cloud Connection System to be the safest of all: 1) Option to fully disconnect with 01 step only. 2) One single front line system. 3) More depower, because the bar is closer to the body ( Does any other system has 72cm of travel to sheet in/out?) Unless the OP's...
