he was already riding for airush, not for naish...
this is what he told me (picked it from my site):

After hearing that Lou was riding for Takoon, I asked him why he had chosen for Takoon.
And because the Takoon (skoop) are ment to be riden with a chickenloop, I asked him what he thought about the use of chickenloops.

Here are his answers:

'I am riding anything.
I think the chicken loop is good for flying
the kite better, but its dangerous to use a shackle. I am not ready for the
chicken loop yet. one day soon I will try it.'

He's not riding particular for one brand.
