Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

Ha, line strength. If you only fly the kite with no power spikes you can get away with really really thin back lines. Sadly we have to deal with gusts, kites falling and repowering after you made a mistake where you can get enough power on a single line to snap even a 300kg rated line. Tested used a...

Re: Kite Manufacturing - free feedback

That is no load bearing stitch. The canopy goes all the way to the leading edge underneath the dacron strip where it is fixed with the triple zigzag. But it doesn't look nice indeed!

Re: Cabrinha PU mainline depower tube

PU tubes are perfect if the lines are a tight fit with sealed ends so there can't get sand inside or the lines rub themselves to pieces. All the bad experiences come from brands like Cabrinha, where it is all too loose fitted inside the tube. If designed properly, the tube weares out before the insi...

Re: Levitaz Bionic

You need to change the stab + fuse. New race fuse is even shorter than the freeride one. If you ride the Bionic with excessive front foot pressure you won't have any instability Downwind. But you need to get used to this setup. If you don't set it up correctly because you don't like so much pressure...

Re: Moses 2018

I'm using 25mm countersunk screws for front and middle holes for 590 Moses uses torx screws and I prefer Allen so I just got stainless 6mm at Fastenal We have a bunk available on an OBX trip 4/14-4/21. Wanna join? Why would you prefer hex bolts over torx? Hex always gets round over time with me, ne...

Re: the right sized kite

What foil? Some foils are too slow and/or have too much drag to create enough apparent wind from an "underpowered" kite so you need to ride bigger than someone on a higher performance low-drag foil.

Re: Depower rope WTF

The problem with tubes like Cabrinha lies in fact that they put the ropes way too loose in the tube. That way they can move and sand gathers inside the tube resulting in invisible wear. If the rope sit tight with both ends sealed the tube wears down while the line inside stays like new. A very simpl...

Re: Sleeving lines

They get it on spools without core, I have some 50m spools on stock in 3, 3.5 and 4mm both red and green and 3mm also in blue and black but per meter.

Matteo, with sufficient practice and the right tools / line types stitched splices can be made faster than a stitched sleeve.

Not hydroiling, haha. I wait for temperatures above 5deg if you don't mind.
