So whats more chicken?

Using a 15m 4 line and riding in the loop, or being a real man on a 9m 2 line with no loop?

Well,
on flysurfer psychos and warrior, you need to use the chicken loop, to make the kite fly well and enjoy it's full potential, not to mention relaunching them.

Here we don"t call it chicken loop, as there are no chickens here with kites.
It is called depower loop here.
Regards

I'd rather be a chicken than a turkey.....

Chicken loops enable you to go out in wilder conditions ...... not just in constant mellow stuff like "real men" do.....
