New BEST 2009 Chicken Loop!

Postby .Joel » Mon Jul 21, 2008 6:44 am

Hi Guys,

BEST are releasing a new Chicken Loop for 2009.

More Info: Best 2009 Chicken Loop

I don't think i'm the only one that thinks this is a welcome update! I flew the 2008 Waroo and the kite was very very nice, at the time I was even considering the Nemesis HP. The update to the 2008 bar was pleasant, however their chicken loop lacked severely and this had a weighting factor in why I didn't choose a nemi hp. It is great to see BEST finally bringing a chicken loop setup that is much safer to the industry, seeing as their kites are one of the most popular brands on beaches this can only have a positive impact in the amount of kitemares being experienced. It won't solve everything, however it is one more step in the right direction.

Regards,

.Joel

good that Best has a release in the center with pushing up now as well.
The majority of chicken loop releases are like that now, so with Best it is another big step to achieve the goal of having one type of quick release system!

Good job, Best! :thumb:

this chicken loop turns me on!

hopefully no more auto-ejecting from the worn out crappy safety release on the chicken loop on my 07 bar
