Here is what I originally posted in case you did not read the whole thing. Pay close attention to the 2nd paragraph.
Your correct about the 2nd paragraph ; never got that far before banging out
my response. I just read to the second sentence . Sorry
The rest kinda qualified what you were thinking, thus the , (out of context).
* I'll stand by the part about there IS no bar on the market, that can take two wraps
on the lines, and still guarantee a Clean Release.
** I'll also argue that sand can be problematic with the current valve systems
for most kites ; more thought could be directed at this , since Most kiters
lay-out their equipment in sand.
*** The Leash most people use ; Yea-- Bad Luck i was on the receiving end Twice,
by a run-away kite. It's a problem , but it wasn't MY leash that broke.
MY Leash is getting some stronger cord now though.
**** The Hook on the spreader bar ; They Break, and that's why i don't use them
any more. Thank you : Dynabar V-7 !!!
These are ALL flaws that can be problematic with current kite systems found
on modern equipment . The First one i just mentioned should be addressed
in the Very-Near future ; the inferior quality of some Leashes could actually
Kill someone that's down-wind of a run-away kite.
... Safety is not eliminating the it is at it's core reducing the chance and severity at which they occur. From my experience that starts with the choices and risks we take.
After actually Reading that part ; i agree 100%. It's the reason Why i never
do a kite-loop if someone is down-wind of me anymore. I may have to
ditch the kite completely, cause of what i mentioned above about the wrapped lines.
Before doing multiple kite-loop's now, i will actually Pre-wind my lines in the opposite
direction before going for the doubles, so i Never have but (1) wrap in my
lines Ever. This makes the Odds Much higher , of my QR working if needed.
Same goes for a double back-roll ; the bar gets Pre-wound once in the
opposite direction First !
What it boils down to is the importance of what --TheJoe-- said about
knowing your equipment. Too Bad i didn't finish reading what he wrote
before i Jumped on it !!
