Have a Dakine harness here the quality of the welds is very low. Same thing goes for the NP harness I have been using for a year now.

It seems like there is zero process control at the plants manufacturing these items. Also the QC is unacceptable since the welds vary a lot in quality on the same series of spreaders. From what I can see in this thread.

Be glad you are not a snowkiter, inappropriately using this gear for gliding. Imagine being 100+ feet over the deck and having a failure of this sort???

I've wondered if snowkiters that lofted like that ever ran double lines - guess this would be another single-point failure. Think I'll leave all that for the youngsters :) :)
