Moving towards kite makes sense! Thanks, will try.

What If there is a gust or if you are overpowered will it not get new tension, fly off its back and yank you?

What about self rescue? From my b4 and b5 experience, the kite starts flying around if I start winding the lines up. There will be tension if you pull the flag line a bit and start wrapping.
If i walk up the flag line, kite keeps flying around and doing that until I reach past the swivel.

What if one gets caught in offshore? Not good if have to swim out to sea to keep the kite from powering up...

please, the idea of my bandit looping, me releasing, the kite still pulling in what is the released position, and then you say swim towards it because its still pulling. dream on and stop supporting a lethal release system.

I teach with the bandit and trying to teach a bar pack down and using the kite to get back to shore was always very hit and miss after the initial release .

I now use a single line realise, i.e. ozone bar and feel more confident each time the student pushes the release away and the bandit always depowers, rather than sometimes!!!111
