Friday? No idea.

I'm guessing this has a point too?

thank you guys for your reply. Please don't fight!

I can not find a replacement part on Flysurfer site anyway. Where can I buy an official depower rope on their site?

If it is not there, I will have to make my own. So I need a 6mm diameter rope then?

Thank you!

I see Flysurfer does not anymore have a front page link to web shop. Weird in my mind. Closed down direct orders from web shop? Flysurfer web has global list of dealers & importers.

For old kite I took 1.1-1.2m piece of 3mm and 1mm dyneema and spliced 1mm inside 3mm to have 4mm like original FS depower. And construction is similar to FS with core line to have redundancy to allow the shell dyneema to wear out.

Tht guy ted at flysurfer usa is a joke he is not very reliable, i had two dealings with him and both times he didn't follow up on his word. I felt stupid having to call back more than 2 times and just went elsewhere for what i needed . He seems like he has good intentions and all but i wont take his word on anything.

Sorry to hear. No issues for me. Technically, the first point of contact is your local dealer. Dealers work with Ted.

Flysurfer center line untwisting system wears out the depower-rope extremely fast..
There is also a problem if the center lines are twisted when you attach them to the kite, they will stay tangled unless you detach the lines from the kite and untwist them. You can't untwist them rotating the chicken loop (or with untwist handle what is in almost every bar nowadays).
There isn't sleeve around the end of the lines where you attach lines to kite. I bet they won't last for long, they will wear out fast.
I have flysurfer bar 3.0 and I'm not a big fan of it.
