5th line homemade SUCKS..... :o


The Naish Shift bar or the North 5th. Element bar is what i use..... 200% difference, on the good side, to a homemade 5th, line... :thumb:


Buy the right gear, or dont use it at all!! That`s my standard. :oops:

No, Guerilla's (or any other PL-ARC's) dont need them to relaunch.

Toby, maybe you should change this to "have you tried a factory built 5th line (ie Noth/Naish) and if so are you planning to use it?"

There are 2 issues

1) some kiters will never adopt 5th line ie Guerillas, 2 line? maybe Recon Cabrinhas?

2) there's a difference between North/Naish 5th line and home made


I think I know where you're going with this but I think the question is slightly flawed.

For the record, I can't imagine going back to 4 lines

thanks

I have a Naish and a North bar and I will try both with a homemade 5th line.
I had allready a 5th line on an X2 two or three years ago, but not as safety.

Tomorrow we will fly to Cumbuco and I will start testing.

I made my own "homemade" 5th and I love it. Homemade or bought, what's the difference? It's just a bunch of lines cut a different lengths.

LOL...

The shift system is made out off 14 bits, that are NOT on any standard bar....´

That why, I make i say there are a difference between a simpel 5th, line, and a North/Naish bar..

It is all the littel things thats makes it a great bar.. :thumb:
