Re: Clickbar red safety line end cap removal

You. Remove the stainless stopper and just pull off the plastic piece.

Note the plastic part is two pieces. Duotone. Has removed the the tight fitting sleeve in later click bars

.I think running through the stainless fifth. Line ring would be fine.

Re: Slingshot UFO

I rode today in this between the yellow lines on my 7m ufo, Once the gusts drop below 12 I can’t get up on top of my dwarfcraft micro. I’d like to see slingshot double down on weight reduction on the 7m and 9m and reduce the size of the leading edge. I’d like it to generate more power when flying it...

Re: Slingshot UFO

On the 7m average 10mph to 10.5 gusts to 12.5 lulls to 6 was absolute low end for me. Wind dropped below that and I could not get up on my board. I felt like if the kite was faster I might have been able to get up. I could reverse launch in 8mph perhaps less on land. Honestly the 5meter is magic but...

Re: Slingshot UFO

Well I think in light-wind anything is a crap shot to relaunch.

The ufo in normal wind is really easy to relaunch. I haven’t had to relaunch in really light wind yet.

Re: Duotone 2021

i think eleveight have same dacron in the one strut kite, Oseries, new light dacron. Maybe, although Eleveight doesn’t mention that it is stiffer. Probably another material. It seems we are going to see some more innovative materials popping up in the new light weight stronger stiffer arms race.

Re: Foot swolen after intensive 2 weeks - anyone suffered the same problem?

You might try different straps. I had a problem a couple of years ago and found the edge of the strap was aggravating my foot. Changing straps helped a lot. You might pay more attention to how your feet contact the straps. You might be able to adjust how you weight and place your feet. I really like...

Re: Any North Reach vs Duotone Evo comparisons?

Duotone lightened up the 2020 evo, tightened the canopy and removed the pullies which took it up a notch in foiling and drift. I’m guessing that is why kitefinder gave an edge to the evo over the reach for foiling and light wind waves. But the reach better for twintip. F0878BF8-F58B-4FF5-BC3E-A9936E...

I assumed as much as well, until I flew the UFO. Different animal. I'd go 5/7 for foiling.
I’d go 5/7 also as that is what I have.

All I am saying is that a 6m sst low end of 24 knots is not on a foil.

If UFO advertised wind ranges are correct, looks like they cover the SS foil range nicely

Since the ghost and ufo are essentially the same kite, I am going to guess that the low ends will be fairly similar. So I believe the stated wind range on the ghost and sst does not include foils.
