Re: North Quad Bar 2015 pulley recall?

I quick follow up question on the replacement ring as seen here: https://www.northkiteboarding.com/blog/?id=5inXQlVh0yItSZ3l_RRrvg Would it make more sense to convert it so that the other front line with black pigtail becomes the flag out line? This way the new metal ring runs over the braided black...

North Quad Bar 2015 pulley recall?

I guess this is a question for Dan at North really but someone else may be able to help too..

North 5 element split point

Hi, Can anyone tell me if the Y split has changed between years? I have a 2014 Vegas and would like to know if the 2015 bar has the same split? If not, has anyone tried flying an older Vegas on a newer bar?

Cheers

Re: Kite line sleeving - what to buy?

Nobody uses sleeving any more. It's obsolete. Learn to do a simple splice then attach the spliced end to a pig tail. A spliced loop is stronger, easier to do, and more accurate than a sewn loop. If you must do sleeving then buy some cheap sheathed line and pull the sheathing off and use that. Thank...
