Re: jumping on North/Duotone Speedster.

If you already broke it with normal riding is would sell the speedster and go for a stronger foil. Seen too much broken speedster fuses to advise abusing that foil, injection molded nylon with carbon fibres is probably not up to the task in a high-stress part like a fuselage.

Re: Wing improvement question

Why not try to open op the crack, fill it with epoxy and clamp it shut? Wrapping it doesn't add too much strength to counteract the splitting of the upper en bottom half of your wing, so gluing the halves back together is mandatory if you wrap it or not. Wrapping involves a lot of sanding, first to ...

Re: Duotone Line Test - wtf?!

I currently use a Cabrinha and North bar. Both from around 2014/2015. The lines on the North are much less rigid compared to the Cabrinha lines (which I like) which are really stiff and make a more durable impression on me. At first I thought this was a quality issue, but by reading around I got th...

Re: How to SFS?/Which measurements do I need for new lines?

If you make your bar so it fits to four lines of equal length you can just order four lines to the length you desire. The lines I make are paired up, so left+right within a few mm's difference. But the total length is harder to get exactly due to the elasticity in both the lines and measuring tape a...

I find only a color difference on the Frontpage list of topics more pleasing to look at, without italic and size difference:

Re: Q-powerline suppliers in EU

Haha, knots in unsheeted dyneema. That decreases the strength by approximately 70%, and the fact that those North lines snap at 200DaN when sleeved (splice is worse) it makes you think how much those lines can handle when knotted... Do you have testing equipment? And for the record, I am fairly sur...

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

Found the error on my measurements:

For 20m it is:
9.45m front
19.75 back

And 22m:
11.45 front
21.75 back

Got those two mixed up somehow....

Re: Kite Marketing's dumbest names list

Maybe not dumb, just very confusing. For me at least, or it is that these brands don't interest me as much:

Eleveight: FS WS RS PS
Or
Naish: Slash/Dash


Way too similar. Every time I come across those kites I need to look up or second guess myself which one it actually is.
