I used a 122 XXX for a few weeks in November, mostly on a Rhino 4 20. It is an incredible board, gets going amazingly early (faster than the old 144 X-Shooter) for such a short board. Also holds the edge really well. Will do it for me as a one-size-fits-all board, can highly recommend it. Didn't hav...

Look at the the way the Wichard release is modified with the kiteproshop-bar (http://www.kiteproshop.com), looks great to me, always close to your body (fixed position), very simple non-moving release with this little pin + balls at the end.

We have now heard a lot about the new Recon system and is seems to be a real home run for Cabrinha. Congratulations!!! However, the most important part is still the kite. Can anybody of the Cabrinha-affiliated guys give a first hint/insight to what has been improved with the 2004 models? Although th...

The belt (=depower range) of the bar looks pretty short. Is it possible to fly it with a kite that can handle or even requires a much longer depower line (such as e.g., Takoon Scoop2)? Or will you always have to use the (less comfortable) adjuster?

Any real life testing of the flexifoil system?

How come the flexifoil storm ii system has been out now for several weeks and nobody can give any detailed experience on reliability, ease-of-use, etc.? Still sounds like one of the best (of the few spinning) systems on the market ...

The standard model is not designed to spin as you have a leash going to your wrist from the backline, however it can be easily modified to spin.
How?

I agree with Vide, the Storm 2 systems looks great. Two issues remain which I am not sure about: a) Does the system still work after several rotations when the two front lines are still twisted around each other (which is usually the case even after rotating the bar back unless you have a rotating h...
