Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

Good that you are getting it right. At first it can be confusing getting the Brummel right especially when the other end of the rope is unavailable. Like Opie said, be sure the bury is long enough. 72 times diameter seems to be recommended. Overkill? Maybe. I made a pigtail with about 10 x bury and ...

Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

Okay, I do Brummel splices on sheeting lines, pigtails and kitlines. No stiches and no problems. If I was going to stitch I certainly would not waste the effort doing a Brummel splice. If you are wearing suspenders, why n other with a belt. I think the Brummel is actually, miniscually weaker than a ...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Team Spitfire, there has been mention in this thread of plugging the mast to prevent it filling with water. I am sure that you all experience it but I have not yet read of any experiences from anyone who has plugged. It seems to me that some Sikaflex or Simson would be effective in keeping the water...

Re: Don't show us your hook

Here are a couple of pictures of the rings I attach to my spreader bar. You will see that I have welded a half ring on the bottom of the spreader br to keep the pivot in the middle. There are other ways of doing this but I happen to have had a welder handy. The thick ring on the black line in the se...

Re: Don't show us your hook

I use a pivot instad of slider. 5 years now. I tried both and found no advantage to the slider over the pivot. I agree that the big benefit comes from getting rid of the hook and chicken loop. It seems to me that the vast majority of hookless kiters became hookless via a slider set-up and assume tha...

Re: Don't show us your hook

Alford, nice! Your picture is one of the cleanest, hookless, loopless setups I've seen on here that retains trim and flag. I started out using the Naish QR but have found that I don't need trim or flag and now just use a single sheeting line and Cabrinha mushroom release.

Re: bulk line

Hey dracop. Is that bulk line that the retailer will supply? I am thinking that I would like a spool of the 301. Can you let me know which retailer it is?
