you may want to look into a sliding bar like the Dynabar to give you more advantage. I have never tried this but from what I read this makes going toe-side much easier.
I have the Dynabar V-7 ; i should have said that right away !!
I got my Dynabar from :
You'll Laugh when Ya read how i got it .
Best device i ever used for kiting ; made all
the pain in my lower back go away. Also-- the Dynabar made it so i could go toe-side
a Lot easier than with a regular spreader bar hook. Give 321 a call and ask what
their riders feel about this device ...
OK-- i got the V-7 to make things easier but all i need now is wind to try
all the suggestions ; they backed down the forecast for today and that's never
a good thing to read, i'll have to wait till tomorrow to go kiting.
