[quote="Paraflysurf"]This is not a COMMERCIAL, it is an INFO.
"It is called DPS-Depower-Pulley System and it has been developed by paraflysurf.ch !"
Is this DPS system a variation of the "dynamic 5th" line system or "mechanical 5th" line system that has been discussed on Kiteforum for about 3 years?
If so, it will have the pulley that the 5th line runs through, below the bar and above the chicken loop.
Does the system have the following characteristics:
(1) Ability to spin the bar without twisting the lines?
(2) Ability to adjust the 5th line "on the fly"?
(3) Ability to release the 5th line in case of entanglement around the kite?
(4) Is the system just for snow kite use?
If so, then the system can be used to extend the life of many old "C" kites, by giving them somewhat the large depowering capacity of the modern SLE/Bow flat kites.
Please give us a picture or diagram of the system. I don't think too many of us will be able to get a copy of the magazine.
Here are some links to past discussion of different types of 5th line systems:
