for windsurf uphauls at least. Question: for depower rope, can you reach it easily when it retracts? hmmm, I think it would be good for below the bar...
fiddly bits =Not so MUCH....
- how to fiddle them when banging through chop overpowered?
- cost to build?
- cleaning and maintenance?
- durability: line diameter = chafe protection and longevity
- quick release achieved with more mechanisms, weight and cost on releaseable spreader bar = classic widening design spiral. But keep working on it, there is potential. Just need to overcome the "centrifugal force" of the design spiral.
Nice thing about a big old rope, is you can grab it mid-wipeout and maybe get dragged less (but it's still gonna hurt ) Mechanically it seems a cool invention, but I'd use a simpler design.
