Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

OP could have repaired his broken bridle and be back on the water not missing any wind while the parts were on the way Cut clean 5 inches off each side of the break Create a strong bowline knot at each cut ends leaving a one inch loop Get a 16 inches non-stretch line that will fit through the pulley...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

the story seems plausible when you know that the pulley might be the culprit. The solution would be easy here. Brand could ship via normal postage service. So a slight additional effort would go along way here. OP, check your pulley. He said the pulleys are fine His breakage happened on late Thursd...

Re: Packing up a foil kite with wet bar

I will rollup the kite with the bar in front of the leading edge and put the kite back in the bag with the bar outside the bag in the outside pocket. Still have the benefits of bar attached to kite without a soggy mess. Been doing that way with bar/lines in front of central LE for 19.5 years whethe...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Yeah pretty much every other company stopped using these. The pulley wheel can be super sharp and cut through a bridle. They aren't made for kiting. Kiting for 700 hours / 350 sessions / 3.5 years that's how long they are good for the pulleys and bridles until it becomes the time to think of replac...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

***** the line was snagged in a previous launch incident but didn't fail, and or failed the next time, but it was almost certainly snagged on something sharp to breach the woven outer and to sufficient depth that the inner core was also compromised in one incident***** That is the most logical expl...

Here's some pictures, are you happy now?
Here's a happy fact :

If you were an Ambassador for Core you would not have started this thread at all

You would have waited patiently for replacement parts and kept to yourself

But instead you chose to act like an a**hole....oh well

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Now that we know PullStrings is someone who talked to Brett, let's clear the air up. Cause unlike Core and Brett I talk with my own name without using 3rd parties. 2 years ago I was really into kiteboarding, they had the XR4 kites, I asked about their ambassador program. I talked to Brett on the ph...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

But when the USA distributor Brett emailed me with attitude and with his words "you are welcome that we put this order in on Sunday night", that's what it tipped me off. I pay a really high price for a kite, asking for a service, getting charged international shipping, he puts an order on Sunday ev...
