@LFAK - Now you're being completely unfair on two fronts.
1. The DynaBar has been used successfully for many years now and JayBar has been one of the most responsive companies to customer suggestions. Slandering this person/company in inappropriate when all they are attempting to do is innovate.
2. You can't lump the professionally designed product made from top quality material in with "a printer in someone's house". Pick one. I don't believe people should print KBing parts at home either, but the professional product they are displaying here is not unsafe.
Just say "I wouldn't buy this because in my opinion it isn't safe" and be done with it.
For me, the price is just silly and it doesn't meet the needs of my setup. There, see, easy.
And how would you know? Do you own any dynabar products or are you just saying that? I personally have used dynabar in the past, and it was the worst product I have ever owned. And when the owner of a company tells you to "f*** off" when you come to him with a problem then what do you think the rest of his products are like? And now he wants to push his shitty plastic O-ring that can be made in the privacy of someone's own home on a printer? No thanks, I will gladly inform people of the dangers of this unsafe product, just like you have multiple times in this thread already...
And another thing mr randy, it's not slander when everything I have said is true

When a lull comes through the rope is unloaded so no damage. In the event of a gust the kite powers up and the rope and ring are reloaded so no damage. You haven't thought this through have you ...
When a lul comes through the ring will slack, and yes no damage. When a gust comes through from another direction and quickly jerks the rope in another direction, then yes, there is friction and rope wear. And what if the user wants to go toeside or blind? Forget it, that will be the most friction and rope wear ever.
And when you think about it, plastic is not a solid material like steel is. Plastic has more of a texture, unlike polished steel. So no matter what you are guarenteed rope wear with this. You can hate on me all you want, but a fact is a fact. I am telling you this for your own good.
