Hey all, here is a quick question for Wainman Hawaii riders.
I'm having issues with the deployment of the safety on my boss 12m. I've only had the kite out 4 or 5 times so far and noticed this problem when trying to self land today.
I have run the frontline extension line that was supplied with the kite from one of the front lines (larks headed above the stopper ball, through the bar and down the the ring on the chicken loop, see picture).
There are two problems i see with this setup:
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.
I've tried to think of possible solutions, but come up empty (short of starting from scratch and making my own bar setup.)
What have people out there been doing to solve this problem?
