Xbow line twist

Postby wallyman » Mon Nov 21, 2005 11:07 am

Everytime I do a spin with the xbow I accumulate a twist in the depower strap. The swivel spins freely but won't turn after a spin. After an hours sailing I have a huge twist which can be dangerous if you drop the kite and have to relaunch. Anyone got some ideas on how to stop this twist? I thought of tieing the top part of the swivel to the outer lines which might hold it stable so the bottom part can spin?

Sheet the bar fully out and back in again. This will remove the twist.

or if you do a forward, follow it with a back spin
