I think all the performance of this block is in the enamel paint, if that gets worn thru you are supposed to throw it out. I think the anodization is there just to make the paint stick. The failure of a wheel pulley means you have to flag out your flag, swim in and replace the pulley. If this aluminum block fails --- that is if it gets to the bare aluminum thanks to the sand, then it should wear straight thru the bridle line and instead of replacing a pulley you get to replace a pulley and a bridle. Or maybe these wear so slow you can replace them at the same time you replace your bridles for wear?BWD wrote:But how quick do they explode once the sand destroys the anodization?
How much better are they than the ones you have available now?Dimitri M wrote:RONSTAN asked me if we could test these new pulleys on our EPIC KITES. So for 9 months now we have been testing these pulleys on the EPIC prototype kites and they work very nice no complaints at all. They are different then the ones we have been using on our 3G kites. They look almost the same but the material is lighter and they come in different colors.
