You should have a QR on the blue safety line as well? Or are you speaking of something else.
I guess I should have explained that, since not everybody has seen the RECON system...
The SPEED safety can only be activated by pulling the QR on the chicken loop (or unhooking).
RECON has a release near the depower strap - pull (Gen1) or push/pull (Gen2) and the centerlines release and activate the safety (which bunches up the trailing edge and brings down the kite). Or - if you have the Bypass leash
- pull the QR on the chicken loop (or unhook) and the same thing happens.
If you don't have the Bypass leash, you've got a spinnable bar, but pull the QR and you've got a runaway kite. So, with the Bypass leash, Cabrinha wins on safety but loses on the leash not being spinnable. Without the Bypass leash, they're tied on both counts.
