Its a good point that the Jaystore system is a tried and tested system and the others are cobbled together with varying potential results.
I also bought the spreader bar and the two clips and the pulley and the twisted D-shackle and the rope for my system on page 1 and it cost not that much less than the most basic Dynabar would.
On page 1 you can see that I cut part of a Q/R and connected it to the pulley, so my release is the same as using the original Nobile chickenloop.
With the Cabrinha Q/R I have used a 6mm locking carabiner and ground the end flat so it is the same thickness as the Cabrinha part, so with a Cab kite I could take a 6mm swivel and do the same, to be able to use the Cabrinha Q/R and include a swivel.
I'm interested in all these systems, so I'm going to get one of the other type of Wichard style releases which has a hole through it and you release it by pushing a wedge shape into the hole and try to find the most reliable Wichard system for releasing when you want it to and not when you dont. I already have one of the Wichards as shown in the photo by Kamikuza.
EDIT: having seen the price of the other Wichard, I reckon its too expensive to be considered and will work out the best system I can find for the cheaper one.http://www.mailspeedmarine.com/photo/10 ... 7071_1.jpg
