Re: Tuning the Flysurfer Boost v1 9m? Flutter issue.

Let me know when you find lines which changed length by 9cm, not to mention 36cm. The worst cases I measured are indeed in the 30cm range for the steering lines when they are on the end of their life, abused a lot with almost all coating gone. But often enough it is in the 10-20cm range for the bac...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

no, that one needs a spliced loop at the end to fit the rotating head. Don't see an option to fit a simple knot in the head.

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

Peter, I have also been looking for the same thing. The ozone push away looks like a possibility, a lot cheaper than the click in version. Different from the normal rotor head design, the loop assembly rotates around the chassis and it is single line. ....... ....... Looks like the centre line migh...

Re: How to Care for your "Click Bar"

Not a single word about flushing the inside of the depower tubing :o If I get someone with a click bar for maintenance, most often the red flagout line is broken or too worn out to ride safely with. Sand accumulation inside the tube and chickenloop rubs on the red line and because one of the powerli...

Re: Kite Release Fuse

I highly doubt that 110% figure. Maybe for mowing the lawn underpowered, but anyone that does slightly more than that should easily exceed 2x body weight from now and then. For riding overpowerd and jumping you can go to 2-4x bodyweight. Have a racing testrider of 100kg that easily bends 4*25mm stai...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

@evan: haven't seen that it was you, I ordered one yesterday, as I wanted to build exactly the same a year ago, when I stopped using hooks. Great job. :thumb: Those chickenloops and releases for every bar are just a tribut to ancient windsurfing times and there hook harnesses. Completely senseless ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Still in development sadly, discovered an increase in friction (from sand/steel grindings that builds up on the surface of the push knob) after extended use, pushing it just over the afnor limit. Will have more time for development this winter after a very busy summer season! Aside from the friction...

Re: Duotone Neo safety line question

Welcome to the only bar on the market that has no bungee in the flagout line. There are some knots to adjust the amount of slack when at full power, but there must be slack AT ALL TIME! Otherwise you experience excessive wear of the flagout line inside the chickenloop and powerline at the metal spli...

Re: New F-one Halo. Any more info about this kite?

Is the front line broken at the ending of a splice? Maybe it was not correctly tapered. Point me one big manufacturer that properly tapers the splices in their flying lines. I can't remember I have ever came across one in all my years of line repair. They just cut the lines at 90deg, splice it for ...
