I have Enduro V2 6/8/10/12 and they fit the bags just nicely. It's your 7/9/11 odd sizes that are the problem.Dietsdontworkuk wrote: ↑Tue Jan 16, 2018 5:55 pmOk understood re the sand inside abrading the bladder when deflated and packed down; I had naish kites before with same Boston valves but no problems, although I soon switched to ozone so maybe I didn't have them long enough. So the slow leaks may be Boston related or retainer related - I will check the bladder myself when I get the kite back and let you know!.
Incidentally, I know some of you are on enduro V2 - are your bags ridiculously large? I have 7/9/11/14 and the bags seem about right except my 9m bag is exactly the same size as my 11 - so too big. No biggie but I usually take the 9 as hand baggage - this year the bag is too big!
Thanks good advice I always try to blow a few pumps to clear anything and also will blow on the connector (if you have the updated boston specific screw on that can hide some dirt.)iriejohn wrote: If the pump does not have a filter then if you pump up where there's fine sand/dust/grit being carried by the wind it can be pumped into the bladder.
Yes I understand the issue was only throwing out other potential causes for bladder failures. the constant stretching can weaken and ruin a bladder at the wingtips some of the slingys have bungee retainers as well. Dont have a fix for that as that's the way it was setup. I didn't see a problem with the old way of just folding up and resecuring the velcro like has been done for ever on older generation kites.downunder wrote: Guys, you completely missed the point, sorry. If you don't bother to read what the OP raised as a concern, than the replies are not relevant.
I dont think it has anything to do with brands its the fact of opening a huge hole to allow dirt to come in. All it takes is one mistake hurrying to pack it up or a wet kite that attracts all the debris around and can fall in. Its almost flush with the leading edge whereas the old nipple deflates were raised some not to mention smaller lessening the risk of dirt getting in. No matter what fast inflation is a time saver and wouldn't be without anymore.Dietsdontworkuk wrote: Ok understood re the sand inside abrading the bladder when deflated and packed down; I had naish kites before with same Boston valves but no problems, although I soon switched to ozone so maybe I didn't have them long enough.
For sure who cares if its too big! The smaller bags put more pressure on bigger kites and increase wear on stitching and everything else inside. May just buy some stuff sacks and save the bag for resell (this is recommended for paragliders as well especially for longer storage periods). One bag fits all only works when they use the largest kite in the fleet as a starting point. they are getting smaller and smaller every year.knotwindy wrote:Better too big than too small...
