So far this has only come up using the 14m switchblade in well....14m conditions. so pretty light winds.IWB2 wrote:C Johnson,
I too am using the 2013 SB as well, and for me the IDS process and reaction when activating the QR1 is just like the 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009. I have not encounter the issues you have noted as of yet. Were the winds really light for the kite size you were using? If you did everything you are meant to do for a self land, then it is really surprising as to why the kite did not flip on its back.
Resetting the QR1 in deep water is actually easy enough as you mention, maybe not as easy as the 2011 and earlier QR1 system which you could reset with your eyes closed.
Best of luck working this one out. Maybe someone else can assist.

Errrrr... ever tried to reassemble the cabrinha release, especially 2012? if you don't have tension on the IDS line you have to manually feed it through, then keep tension on it while you reassemble the puzzle attached to the loop - see the official video where he steps on the line. It's hard enough to do on the beach, the last time I accidentally hit it in the water I just swam in.bnthere wrote:C Johnson wrote:IWB2 wrote: I can actually reassemble the overly complicated release, it in deep water!

this is hilarious (sort of). how could anyone kite out into deep water with any uncertainty about how to reset a harness loop after release.
y'all better be able to do that, regardless of the system. if you think its hard, practice and figure it out.
i agree with edt.
Basic maintenance and checks from time to time.edt wrote:OzBungy if you only activate the QR once every other year, .....
