As far as I can tell it looks very well made. It has to be used with a metal ring, though, since it doesnt have the best snap shackle.

Hello
Yes i'm using it
What is cool is that you can tie your leash on it it have to be on a front line . when you do rotation the leash will turn with the quick release system. it is very easy to catch the release systeme that is up by the leash and you also have a quick release of the leash for extreme case . Very good system

G'day all,

Thanks for replying to my post.

It appears that there are three suggestions so far. First, one of the new naish loops (thanks jerver98); second, the solid product; and third, the reflex system (thanks francky).

I've had a bit of a poke around on the Internet and can't really find out much about the new naish loops or the reflex system (sorry i don't know French so the web site you referred me to jerver98 doesn't really tell me much about the reflex). Can anyone refer me to a website that gives a good description of how the naish loop or reflex quick releases operate ?

Whilst I was able to find out a fair bit about the solid product from the Internet, I don't think anyone in Australia sells them. I have asked a number of people about them (e.g., local kite shops in AU) and no one seems to know anything about them. Does anyone know if they can be purchased on-line ?

See ya,
