Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

This thread is all about losing the CLs but a lot of good info on QRs and slide setups here. Read a very sad story of a kiter who could not release his shackle and thought I’d share it here since a few posts/designs had incorporated wichard/shackle QRs. In memory of Jeff …I can understand he was not...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

ps would love to hear a more in depth explanation about spectra vs dyneema matteo but of course that's for another topic. If you feel like starting one up I would definitely read it. Article …But for cost and low stretch performance, I go with the Jerry Brown hollow braid spectra. This stuff splice...

Re: heeling free power kite rig on kayak with 21sqm kite

Ingo, Made any further progress on your kite kayak? I saw the new/larger zeeko spitfire (canard) SUP/Surf foil and it reminded me of the Flyak. Seems most kite kayaks are bulky catamarans, downwind prone, and/or pound thru waves. Imagine a kite powered hydrofoil flyak could be fun, after the develop...

Re: Psycho2 convert to FLS

FLS not possible on a 3-liner, but the FDS works fine. I made/used one on my old 3-line FS Titan 15.5, and several other kites since. Reposting http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=1004813#p1004813 ...added a 5th line safety because I was not sure how it would behave/pull if the wind picked up. ...

Re: Who makes their own line sets?

I followed this a couple years ago http://nwkite.com/forums/t-11649.html. A little bit of work, but they probably have 500 sessions on them, still look good and only cost $70 to make... Agree, I've made several sets of these too, some additional info: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=969627...

I purchased a 16M Venom-2...I still got that POS
It'd be cool if you could send that Venom-2 to Pansh so they could reverse engineer and start selling new 19m-10m Chinese "Venom-2s" again :naughty:

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

I have a question about how do you rig Auroras? Do you use 5th line for safety? I don's realy like idea of having one extra line, just extra risk for tangling. Or connect normaly as LEI with single line flag setup? Or connecting leach to steering lines, so if CL released- leach holds steering lines...

Is that the 1 or 2 (?)
Hi Bille,
My 19m is a Venom1 and stock, without a Trailing Edge Tuck Link1 , Link2
My 17m Speed is unmodified too, no 1.5, 631, or 421 mods.
Only fly these in light steady winds, usually on my Mako King for maximum leverage.
