yeah, Brummel splice with as long a bury as the piece will allow. That one was an intermediate step while I got the length figured out for the kites I use with it. The final version has no splice, because it doesn't have that intermediate piece, but rather a clean loop to loop from the stock (stitched splice) white release to line from the harness.

Have used many brummel splices with plenty of bury on depower lines. None have ever slipped.

^^ Yes, we've seen the pictures. What we need is information.

wonder what you get in that chicken loop replacement? just the metal loop on the bottom or the whole QR as shown on the picture?

Yeah, Seriously? If it were really $29 for the whole assembly I'd buy 10. :roll:

It's great to see some innovation from the big boys.
This from Slingy & the Cab fireball, must say I'm not changing anything as I'm stoked with the BRM type connection.

Can you really call it innovation when there are a million an one beta versions pictured on this site alone. Some quite a bit nicer than that.

From a cost point for people riding both twin and surf style , so a bit of both at the harness systems would be more cost effective than at the bar. Currently just alternating a standard pad and hook with a jay bar pad set up. Can see the point of running a dedicated surf bar if that's the sole focus of your riding.
