Re: Anton Chernyshov - The Secret Of Lines Tension

Thank you for sharing Anton! Great advice! Today I had gusty and choppy conditions and I paid special attentions to your recommendations and was rewarded with better jumps and kiteloops! Thanks again!

Only thing I can think he is saying is attached to this post. No idea how that passes through the chicken loop though.
Yes that's how I do it, just instead of 2 granny knots on each end I make 1 knot with both ends together, and cut the spare line real short so it doesn't dangle around

Re: Naish Torque Bar - flag line knot slipped through stopper

OP, if you are making that connection (loop to loop knot) bigger, make sure that the spliced-in line piece (merl's suggestion) or the twist (the photo I posted above) is on the safety line and not on the flying line. This way the excess wear from the stopper part will be on the safety line - easier...

Re: Shorten kite lines ?

The reason I said it is because the strength isn't crazily reduced by a figure eight loop (but it is indeed well reduced with a simple knot on the line). And I've done it quite a bit over the years, and I'm still there to tell the tale. If you were using super thin race lines, rated for the minimum...

Re: Ram air first session damage

Well it's an easy repair and the kite should look and fly like new. The repair will not weaken the kite at all if done well. Can't blame the manufacturer for not providing a warranty after a crash, no matter how light. Maybe it's not the right type of kite for you?

Re: Problem with North Navigator bar

It may be a problem with the donkey 'finger' twisting out of the harness hook, then any release in pressure from the lines means that the chicken loop can unhook itself just by gravity. I had this problem with both my old North (now Duotone) chicken loops on Ion B2 harness hook. I fixed it completel...

Re: Advice on fixing pinholes on canopy

A drop of epoxy glue or shoe goo is also perfectly fine for pinholes (diameter 1 or 2 mm)

Tear Aid has a tape for the canopy and a tape for the bladder. Make sure to order the right one, type a.
I've been using type A for both canopy and bladder for years. Have I been living a lie all this time?
