Though being hit by lightning would feel different lol

I demoed the 11m GTS5, never tried previous versions. I was surprised by the light bar pressure and bar feel, not sure what setting it was on but was quite light. It would takes some time to adjust. Another thing about the bar is that if you push it out a few inch you loose power very quickly, I gue...

Re: Powered kiteloop, fronthand not staying on bar.

That's weird, you are hooked in shouldn't be a problem keeping both hands on bar, try maybe front hand closer to center and back hand in middle of bar, that's usually what i do.

Manera where do you put knife?

I can’t figure out where you put the knife on that harness. There is a bit of material here and there where you could fit it but no Velcro to retain it. I forgot what year I got maybe v2. Already lost one knife. I guess I could just thether one and sleeve it in the strap fabric. On the catalog they ...
