Re: Eleveight XS

That is not fine. This used to happen on first SLE kites up to around 2010, when they started making shorter bridles. Either the bridles are super long on this kite or it was underinflated. It might happen from time to time on a super hard crash or in the waves, but not a "couple of times" in a ses...

Re: any reviews on Rebel 2021

I walked out of the water with a big smile but unfortunately it disappeared quickly after packing. The new bags are beautiful and made of strong recycled material with handy straps and ventilation grid but the kites simply do not fit which that is really a worthless and incomprehensible choice from...

Re: Eleveight XS

Next, when I fell a couple of times I had a line snag on the wingtip, sending the kite for loops. I thought there are protections against that, but seems like they don't work fully, so I had to yank the lines. Or maybe it's fine for LEI's, my previous ones didn't suffer from that. That is not fine....

Re: Comparison between drysuits with Neopren and Without.

I have a prolimit nordic (I think) drysuit and I don't sweat in it. I had a Mystic Force too and same thing. You have to wear proper layers underneath though. What I usually have is a thermal underwear + polar tracksuit. Any type of cotton and it will get wet and sweaty. I don't really have a compar...

Re: ION Quick Lock - new safety standard?

It's kinda similar to what Mystic has in their rope spreader bar with that micro loop. Still good that companies are creating more choices for the riders.

Re: mystic stealth bar

Hey,
Did anyone manage to put duotone's chickenloop through the small loop? With long rope at first it didn't go, but after attaching to the ring, the line stretched and now it is easy to attach. I am not sure if this small one would stretch or should I exchange it for something longer.

Airush DNA 17m2

Hi,
Guys did anyone try DNA 17m2 (or Lithium). How does it behave in light winds around 9-10 knots? Is it comparable to other kites like for example Turbine?
