Re: Depower Line Wear

I had this very issue once again today, some entitled snowflake wanting a warrantee replacement for a depower rope, I had to ask the question, did he ask his car dealer for warrantee on the tyres of his car because they're wearing? Depower ropes wear, it's a fact, they wear in our country more in th...

Re: Core just released: XR6 and XR6 LW

Just seen that REAL review, they do seem very enthusiastic about it, they must have had them a bit longer than us. I could recommend the 9 XR5 and thus the XR6 to anyone, I've not heard anything negative and must admit the 'static grunt' as you call it hasn't been mentioned to me before and I can't ...

Re: Core just released: XR6 and XR6 LW

1st review of the 8 meter here Hmm. Not the most useful review. I'll save people the effort of clicking on the link and summarise the review: 'Its different from the XR5. Its good for jumping. We are going to review it better later' Nowhere near as useful as the Real Watersports XR6 review. @Graeme...

Re: Core just released: XR6 and XR6 LW

Someone should ask Ruben about bars with new systems...

I can't see Core coming out with anything unless it's been really tried and tested thoroughly and isn't the whole industry's bars being reviewed at the moment for ISO testing, didn't I read that somewhere?

It is time to make a poll who lost this debate. You know where my vote goes.

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

Lots of reasons seat harnesses are more versatile, one you don't have to be so accurate with the fit, two lots of beginners don't have a 'waist' fact is if you measure your chest under your armpits and that measurement isn't a good couple of inches greater than the measurement around your middle Mat...

Re: XR6 Release

The Pro Bar to my knowledge is the lightest bar on the market, which does carry other penalties, you simply can't have super light and super durable imv, It's just not the way things work, just because something is expensive, it doesn't mean it'll last forever and certainly not the abuse of high win...

Re: XR6 Release

I can weigh in here with what I know, it is true Core have been working on a new bar, those of us that like the existing system were counselling that the twist should remain and if push away were also to be a part then the two should be combined, the twist release actually works better and more reli...
