Re: Complete Tear ACL

Get it fixed! and then invest in a good functional knee brace and continue working hard on leg strength. I ruptured mine at 25 and had it fixed and all was fine for 8 years. I got complacent and stopped wearing my brace and stopped putting in the effort to keep my legs strong. Everything felt great....

Re: Gaastra pure vs switchblade

If no one has experience with both can anyone comment on the low end of the 2018 12m switchblade?
I am coming off a 13m blade mist (freestyle bridles c style kite) that has good low end for my 100kgs. Can start having fun from 16 kts. Would 12m switchblade be similar?

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Are you talking about the 2015 or 2016 GP bar cause I think the quick release on the 2015 has a large enough hole for the flag line and knot to pass through bit the iron heart quick release the hole is too small.

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Hi Perrt Are you saying that the flag out line with front line attached will not pass through the quick release and therefore only flags 3m? If so then it will not depower correctly. I was under the impression that if I attached the flag out line to a front line and removed the fifth line then it wo...

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Yea that's really what I wanna know. Will the flag out line pass easily through the hole in the quick release. If so it should be easy. Can just add a stopped ball to the front like that is attached to the flag out line and have a perfect 4 line system.

Hey Swimmer thank you so much this is exactly what I was thinking but wasn't sure without seeing one.

Have you personally done this and tested it on flagging or are you just hypothesizing? I

Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Is it possible to easily convert a 2015 Best GP 5 line to a four line with single line flag out safety? There are some really good deals going on these bars and I think the specs of the lines alone make these a great and also the small 42cm size which is perfect for small kite freestyle. Does anyone...
