I suggest let it go.
But then we'll never know if the cheap plastic part will break first, or the cheap plastic embossing will chew through the cheap plastic line :lol:

... I personally have used dynabar in the past, and it was the worst product I have ever owned. And when the owner of a company tells you to "f*** off" when you come to him with a problem then what do you think the rest of his products are like?
...
You must-a pissed the owner off , kinda Really Bad , to make him say that
to you ; but i can believe it , because LFAK , can be a Serious NUT-Job.

@ LFAK
On the Dynabar product ; you are (One) from thousands of people, who didn't
like the Dynabar sliding rope system . :nono:
With that Dynabar-v7, i was able to go toe-side with a directional , the same
day i put it on ; i couldn't do that before i used that product. Most everyone i
talked to OR lent my V7 to ; actually had GOOD things to say about it !! :bye:

Bille
Actually I did nothing to piss the owner off, he just didn't want to man up and fix his problem

That's great you like dynabar, and by the way how is your kiting? Are you an extreme kiter that does a lot of tricks?

Not trying to be a dick or anything, but when someone reccomends a product to me, I also look at the way they kite. And if they aint doing loops or doing crazy shit then their opinion means nothing. :nono:

Is it a plastic pig? Or plastic mud? Does it need Loctite?

You said Loops ; not mega-loops ; so Yes it is something i do on the water and on land
A LOT !!!

* I use the loop a bunch in light air ; to get up on plane, and on
transitions so as to not sink down in the water.

** I like setting a rail, and blowing out the back of a wave , with
a powered loop , when it's blowing 25+.

***I use the loop to trick f***-heads that are trying to run me
on shore by following too close in high winds ; flatten out the board
and transition with a Bunch of power by looping the kite. Do that
by exiting the loop with little or No power.

So LFAK -- tell me how to back off the power in a loop ; NO it's
not done by sheeting out.

Anything else f***-head ?

Bille
Yeah but those are light loops, I'm talking about looping in the air or doing tricks with your loops. But i'm sure you look very cute with your light loops, and your "tricking f*** heads" who are about to run you over

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

First it's a carbon fiber stunt kite, and now he's back with his "Xtreme" kiting stories!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
