Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Only really old cabrinha leashes have the part BRM uses. They’re hard to find. A 3mm stainless eye end cable fitting works fine. Episwiss.com is a source for similar premade parts. They’re expensive though, and look pretty chunky. Somewhere in China there is tooling to make the part, maybe it will ...

Is impact resistance an issue. So far my opinion is that it is not Wouldn't Dyneema/Carbon make more sense? Impact resistance can be double compared to 100% carbon. See the slide from a DSM presentation and here is the full document: https://mega.nz/#!WeZ0VYBD!X-_9i9PmW55CpaFBz88LG-TagYkN1WxP05rnNG7...

Re: making a new control bar

Personal favourite release mechanism is the BRM Cloud system. I've customised mine, but the principle is the same. Really simple, great idea and it works well. No more chickenloop, so you can extend your bar throw if you wish. Or not. The release mechanism is also how you disconnect from the kite w...

Re: WOO consistency

The question is, is your highest measured jump correct? or was there sometimes wrong. Once in a while the Woo measures a very high jump that is not happened, if you don't remove it you do not easily jump a PR. I personally removed 3 ''unreal'' high jumps the last couple of months. A friend of mine ...

Re: WOO consistency

I have not heard that one since woo1 days.. Most complaints are that woo 2-3s are way too generous giving out 40ft scores :-D Just out of curiosity, how do you know that you hit 40.. what were the conditions and gear? what was the hangtime on that 40ft jump? Maybe it's a bad woo, who knows.. mine d...

WOO consistency

I want to be clear that my post is not about WOO accuracy. It is about WOO consistency. I dont care if it measures 3 FT high or low (OK high is better :-)) I have used the WOO 2 & 3. I have worked in industries where judging distances is important. I should be reasonably capable of judging distances...

Re: Best source for Q-powerline pro

I got a spool from https://www.murrays.com/product/61-0276/ I don't know if the wind of change Q line is regular or pro, and never got an answer back. There were a couple other places that had it for about the same price - I think Murrays at the time was the lowest including 9 bucks shipping. Thank...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Very similar to what I did, though I didn't make the insert slug long enough, as purposeful destructive testing shows. I broke it over my leg by pushing hard on the ends. Don't try to ride unhooked. :D Interesting How long was your plug? How did you make the plug? Mine was in a 22/20mm tube I slid ...
