Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Not used that bar but it looks like it suffers from the same flaw. The more recent Cabrinha offering looks better and space for the release to work is built into the chicken loop: It does indeed! they've obviously learned something over the years, not sure if I'll add the spacer area right away to ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I think what they are saying is if the QR1 is jammed up against the bar and can NOT be pushed to be released it is/could be a problem. So you need a ball or something to keep the release away from the bar to leave some room for the QR to be able to always operate. Yeah.. no.. I got it what they're ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

You're correct, the BRM bar does make contact with the QR. However, on the BRM bar, QR # 2 (total release of kite) sits directly behind QR #1 (flagging). I believe the argument would be if you are unable to flag with QR #1, QR #2 is right there within your grasp. With your setup it would be two mor...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Tnx both JT and alford for your comments and makes a bit of sense, but I fail to see where would or could become a problem and in the interest of education not just being argumentative how is this any different from the BRM CR system? BTW do u guys see any issues with the 2 questions I had on my pre...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Couldn't sleep last night so worked on the new center rope (made it dual layered this time) and took @iriejohn's suggestion of flipping things around see how this works and added a front line flag used my spare SS bungee to keep things tidy. BTW one thing I'd like to try out is adding a protective t...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I believe the purpose of the horizontal distance between the front lines at the swivel is to allow the lines to untwist more easily. Bigger distance means a bigger turning moment that the lines can exert on the swivel. Reducing this distance should have no noticeable effect on the flying performanc...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I like your set up even though you don't have a safety line or leash, I like how you have the Oh Shit handels instead. Imho, you could still improve by replacing the ss ring with a LFR. Tnx topmick, yeah the oh $h!t is what I was using I was really digging the kite looping like crazy when testing t...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

This is bar far my fav thread of all time.

I've been messing around with customizing one of my bars. It started trying to drop some weight from it and make it simpler - with the least amount of moving parts - and is working super good.

This is probably my favorite thread of all time.

Re: what size kite to learn, 215lbs, 10-14kts?

Interesting, that's what I was afraid of happening. Thing with me is I am looking for a new 12 or 13 anyways. Put on about 15lbs since I bought this kite and getting left on the beach more and more it seems, plus it's old and tired, and some of the more aggressive features that appealed to me when ...
