Hey Toby, Im back

my kite arrived, and the ML came sealed (its the picture)... is it normal? I have to breack it?

And im thinking on using instead of the plastic thing that links the bar to the ML some sort of elastic, so if some gust come when im using the kite it not as dangerou as i think the use of that piece (here in my kiting spot its realy gusty)... do u thing its going handle do the job?

tnx

yes, you need to break it!

Not sure about the elastic...try it if it works...but needs to be strong since quiet some force will be on it. But not sure if that bit of elastic will make a difference...if a gust hits you can really quickly get of it, just pull down the bar strongly.
Test it and you will see.

Good luck!

I really love my Flexifoil Firestorm 15 m it has so much hang time, i just took off the old bar and set it up with my 5 lines Torch naish bar. Old kite perfect for old school, the only problem is that is kind of hard to pump it all, saludos amigo.

Sure...go ahead and try it !

Hold the board on the strap and take it off, that will work fine.

And make some pictures!
