Thanks for the enlightening response kitenaked, however i'm looking for a solution which allows me to hook the safety in under the bar so i can ride comfortably without having to untangle my bar from my leash whenever i want to spin it.kitenaked wrote:Don't use the mini 5th.
For your 1st problem: This is something that will always happen as long as you have a "large" attachment point for your mini-fifth, like a ring or a ball etc... You need to figure out a different way of attaching the extension line to the front line. Look at the way Slingshot or I think Naish attaches it. You want a sort of small knot which can sit inside a ball or another attachment point of the front line, which when the safety is engaged, lets the ball follow the bar along the front line, making the kite flag onto that line...Tvillegus wrote: 1. when deploying the safety, the line pulls through until the frontline stopper ball hits the bar hole and stays put. This only "shortens" the front line it is attached to by around 8 inches, which does sweet f#&@ all when depowering the kite.
2. the swivel cannot turn when doing rotations as the extension line will wrap arount the chicken loop line and prevent the swivel from turning.
