first session i used it I dropped kite, line got stuck and mount broke in half. They sent me a new one, now I try to be slightly more conservative when I kite with the mount.
Make nice pics though.

see this thread for details / pics:

As others mentioned, with all line mounts, be prepared to ditch your kite if the thing tangles the lines after a slack.

Beastmount has broken twice, almost lost the camera and totally tangled my lines. They replaced the first one, but dont even want the second replacement.

Just awful

I've been using this linemount for months. My Camrig is at the bottom of my bin for kite parts somewhere. No issue with steering lines getting hung up. http://www.ugokiteboardingwest.com/
