i used to use the flysurfer release system on a peter lynn, back curl, spreader and this was great it never fel out but would releae when needed, but i've now modified all my kites to end in a simple 4mm steel ring. the release line from my wichard shackle is simply velcroed above the steel ring onto each kites depower loop.
basicaly i have a shackle on my harness with a velcro tab that ataches to the depower line, so i always know where it is and every kite is the same, the other good system i've sen is a german one, not solid, that is spreader bar based and has a metal pad that you tap to release.
i think we'll see some new kit later this season, but for now everyone is using the their own system.
i think all kites should come with asteel ring on the end of the depower line and come with a release on this that can be removed so a shackle canbe used it you prefer, then we all have the choice to use identical systems.
