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?

Re: Waves in Asia

Taiwan looks interesting. I will consider it. Have you guys been to Siargao? It looks promising, but I am not sure if it is just their marketing or is it that good?

Re: Custom 5th line release for waves, who knows how?

Wave grenade is only possible with bars that have a different trimmer for fifth line or fifth is not trimmable at all i.e. goes slack when you depower the kite. With North bar you can cut down all your safety line at the bar (2B in the manual), still it will fly well. Tension on the fifth is only on...

Re: Cabrinha FX

Can anyone compare the FX to the North Dice 2015? Tested the Dice recently and loved it, but it seems that the FX might be quite similar? Anyone who has flown both? I've ridden both and decided to buy the Dice as it for me felt much better unhooked (better slack), was way easier to jump and just fe...

Re: control bar for 2012 Fuel?
