Re: Best Bar Elbow Break

Given the nature of the angles inside the channels, it seems apparent that they are meant to accommodate the various sizes....what other use could they have?

Anyhow I harvested several bars and now have what I call my 'slingforce' bar...mix and match I always say....

Re: Best Bar Elbow Break

Yea- I just noticed it a few months ago and I was really stoked. I am fairly certain its an 07 bar. Made my 16m turn real easy. Each elbow has 3 channels total, one on the top and one on either side (and one on the bottom of course). Looks like the inside ones would yield a 50cm bar. Pretty nice opt...

Best Bar Elbow Break

This was fun. 16m slacked out on a wave and when I went to power it off the water the elbow shot off like a rocket.

Re: Slingshot valves breaking itself

Just finished gluing 3 additional strut valves on an 09 Havoc after one let go.
Seems like the 4 year mark is when they start to give.
Thanks for posting, will keep an eye on my REV valves. :wall1:

Re: Are wind range graphs misleading?whats your opinion?

Some kite websites actually post dud wind forcasts 'as in 15+ knots' at the end of their 7 day graphs - just to get more hits for their sponsors and keep you checking... I always take a large medium and small kite wherever so unless it goes to glass, i got it covered.. Hit the nail on the head.... ...

Excellent post.
