If the key chain can crack a beer open, I would buy it :)
NICE! I have seen tiny surfboard shapes with an opener in the place of the fins. How would you get a kite to pop a cap? Maybe a cutout steel plate in place of the lines going down to a bar?

Re: North Trust bar 2018

Pretty clean cut! Pics don't reveal a wear area, though right above the bar could be where you twist in loops. Most of my line breaks were much more elongated and showed some "tearing" across the braid.

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

I am choking to death just reading this statement! Read more slowly and your should be ok. My evaluation of Naish lines is from the 2008-2014 era and I never experienced or saw any one experience any issues with those year Naish lines. And as opposed to your experience, we DO kite from beaches with...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

Concluding that because two products have production variances there is "no difference as far as we are concerned" is a great back pedal attempt. :thumb: No back pedal from me at all. But you may have misunderstood me or I may have been unclear. Let me explain. Spectra production method (Honeywell ...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

And thanks for correcting me on Dyneema vs Spectra. I hope I did not confuse anyone, though they are essentially the same material for our (kiters) consideration. Similar, but (iirc) the key differences of interest to kiters have been covered in other threads. Yes, you do recall correctly. But the ...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

I do not understand what you are trying to say on the wave behavior. Could you please summarize the essence in different words? I am interested, in particular about the peak getting behind. Words and pics won't do it. You need an animation. Anyone with a link to one is welcome to beat me to the pun...

Re: Core Sensor Bar 3 release

Do you know if there are any problems using the bar with Cabrinha kites ? Bunch of people talk about the high-Y setup or the safety system (single line safety) etc. but seems like there is no consensus Just for definition: 1. High Y - Lines "Y" somewhere about half way up from the bar to the kite. ...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

I also have some Marlow tight braided spectra kite line that I believe is 350kg, but still nice and thin for back lines. AFAIK all Marlow kite line is Dyneema, not Spectra, and I guess you mean this? Kiteline Race utilises Dyneema SK99 and is available in 1.3mm and 1.5mm diameter. While maintaining...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

Matteo if that's your only issue with it, the strongest knot you can make in q-power line is just to take some regular sleeving material pull it over the q-power and then knot from there. The reason it breaks is how tight the bend is. Additional sleeving will make it a lot stronger at the figure 8 ...
