If the welding is at bottom of the spreader bar tube /as I see it from the pic,and it`s quite strange/ the kite tension will force the spreader to twist..
That`s I meant...

L.

The welding is not different to another spreader bar from Mystic that I have near me, yet that other one is not twisting... Still in fog here :(

It is not pads jobs to keep it in right angle. That is done by tightening the belts

Never happened to me and i have been riding Mystic for about 8 years...
Try and tighten the straps next time and if that doesn't work then go to the local dealer so he can take a look.

I currently ride a Mystic Warrior with Clicker 3 and this never happened to me, even if i don't tighten the straps.
On the other hand, maybe it does happen all the time while riding with the kite up at the Zenith and then straightens out again. I will try to notice next time on the water.

I see you did not fasten the lower strap. That should make a helluva difference.

What do you mean? More specific, please, because as far as I know all the straps were fastened :(

take a look at the picture, it runs through the loop under the hook, I believe all mystic harnesses are equipped with it. Your video was too blurry, I can't say if you have mystic harness or only bought mystic spreader bar, that's the only explanation I have for why you don't have it there

edit: looking at mystic website, looks like there are some models, that might not have the strap. One I can see is Supporter model. I guess they dropped it because it's seat harness, so no way it would be riding up, but frankly I would not want a mystic harness without it (for the starters I'd never opt for seat though). I believe lots of companies use this extra strap nowadays, they make perfect sense.

Yeah, the bottom strap should help with that.

I just wish they would go back to the classic spreader bar where there was just a hook. No clicking in or any of that. Its always a pain to detach after 2 hrs of kiting

lol...on my Blazer waist harness I don`t have a lower strap :(
case solved...but not in my favor!!!! :angryfire:

P.S. seems there are 2 types of this clicker spreader bars, one for a lower strap and another (that I should be using with the Blazer harness) without lower strap...like in the attached pic.
I suddenly feel sorry for choosing Mystic!

As far as i know the Blazer harness is not intended for kiteboarding it's intended only for snowkiting and landboarding.
