Gottmore - I cant find the pics you are talking about ?
WSL ? Cant find it anywhere in the gallery (and the Search function does not work...)
Is it the standard notation for "Wing Span Line", or what ?
Anyway - curious, as we have not had any problems with wear on the Takoon bars here, neither the 2003, nor the 2004 (that we have used since october now).
I dont say it dont happen - but I am curious what you have experienced of course ?
I was out with the 9m2 Skoop3 today - and was amazed that it was so well balanced - not too quick as one might have feared.
The AR is much lower than the big ones - but it still has the lift and power and stability.
Almost all small kites have this today though - but it really works fine the 9m2
By the way - the new bar is designed so the loop can be used for handle pass moves.
A slightly bigger loop, and a stopper ball so the trim will fit perfect when you hook out, instead of getting powered too much up.
And the QR will work no matter what....
You have to cut the Chicken Loop lock pin of course - as you dont need it when doing handle pass moves.
And you can always mount a lock on your spreader bar later, if you want to lock the loop again.
