Re: Foot straps and foot injuries

new footstraps can be stiffer. Also, the design of footstraps and how they fit your feet can vary.

This could be why the tops of your feet hurt.

Re: Click Bar Highlights

... my favorite bit is I can loop the kite as many times as I like and noooooo twisting of any lines. I do have three minor complaints about the otherwise very clean and addicting bar. I'd like the adjustment to be half as long. Since it is a backline 1:1 system vice the 1:2 frontline cleat, and si...

Re: Best bankrupt?

I rode best kites from the first Waroo up until this year. Best as I knew it is gone. The people that made it a great brand have moved on.

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

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. Has anyone here printed anythin...

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

Right. I knew it was SLS printed from the images. I’m certain it will be great for a long while. I was referring to you advocating the printing of the “at home” as you did previously. People are unlikly to spend $2000+USD on a printer for this purpose. But they might try to print it on their $100 p...

Re: North Click Bar

Color coding is a little odd. but consistent all the way to the kite. Even has color strands in the lines. St...
