I can't see the picture. My friend built a prototype chickenloop/pully bar and according to him the concept works well, only problem was he had some of the lines running down the legnth of of the bar- A usable one would probably need to have the lines located internally?

Loks cool..only problem I see is that the depower range is only the half lenght of the rope because of the pully effect..and also the force needed to power the kite up..

but I think I wanna build me one...would be interesting for older naish/caprina kites that are slow and need a lot of force to be powered up..

.I wanna know how my GXR 19,5 react to that

interesting concept

The one my friend had was different. It had pullys on the ends of the bar and sheeting in and out changed the size of the triangle of line that the main pully is mounted on.

I guess it was just more complicated
