Re: Eleveight RS: My Review

Is this just me or that review tastes like a marketing pitch? Fairly mediocre at that... Trust-me.jpg Have you been to a kite beach? All kiters are the biggest product pimps ever. Everyone will always say how their gear is the best ever. On top of that this is a kite forum, this is where we are all...

Re: fone bandit on 2017 north trust bar?

As i already said, it works just fine but because the North bar lines are the same lengh when sheet in and the F-one is not, you will need to shorten the back lines of the North bar when using it on the Bandit. Otherwise it's like you are trimed even though you are not ;) I find this lines-shorteni...

Re: How to make a high Y bar ?

That being said - why bother at all? Kites designed to fly on Y-bars work perfectly fine with V-bars, it's the other way around that you might actually notice any difference in kite's behaviour and yet alone - to have any real issues. Can you please expain further? I dont understand why v-bar desig...

Re: fone bandit on 2017 north trust bar?

So are you willing to put your balls on the chopping board and say everything will be fine? Any day! As far as I'm concerned - there's less risk in releasing a Bandit on a single line VS releasing that same Bandit on the stock bar and praying for the damn thing to flip as it supposed to. Besides, t...

Re: North Zippers

Maybe it's time for some collective actions? All these who purchased North kites within last 12 months should bust their zippers and apply for a warranty replacement. That should run into some thousands globally. After replacing that many bags - a few times perhaps - somebody at North will start thi...

Re: fone bandit on 2017 north trust bar?

The risk comes from the bridle tuning. Its not simple to design a bridle that will prevent a kite from going into a spin if the QR is released during a turn. Flagging to 2 lines will even out the leading edge pressure and in most cases stop the kite from spinning. If your tow point for the single r...

Re: fone bandit on 2017 north trust bar?

Your problem will be mixing a dual line flag kite with a single line flag bar. Whilst you personally might be comfortable taking the risk that the safety won't work properly, are you prepared to potentially present this risk to another person (who depending on skill level might not understand the r...

Re: F-one Bandit bar alternatives?

Will fone sell the new metal bit that converts the safety to one line to enable exsisting customers to convert the older monolith bars?? Knowing F-One and having seen the video about new bar - I highly doubt it. a)it is just a lot more lucrative for F-One to do absolutely nothing about old bars b)t...
