Re: 15m Peter Lynn Kite & Beautiful Burrotti Board and all the kit for sale

The most recent Peter Lynn Guerilla v2 was from 2004, so I have to be with Dave that this is only worth scrap value unless you find the right sentimental old guy, but even then worth only a handful of bucks.

NEVER EVER sell it to a beginner please!

Re: Should I fully dry my foil kite?

Best to fly it on a rainy day to wash the salt off, heard that the chemicals in tap water are more damaging for the coating than sea water. So just dry it well before long storage and keep it out of the sun as much as possible.

Re: Risk of a knot v risk of knot removal

Just re reinforce that you definitely should remove a knot out of a flying line (unless intentional placed in leader lines, pigtails etc) All my tests on dyneema lines show a 60-70% reduction in strength, regardless of the line thickness. So a 300kg line only has 100kg left when there is a simple ov...

Re: elastic steering line? replace complete set?

Steering line? The flagout line needs to be elastic, otherwise it will become slack when you trim the depower cord which will be annoying.It needs to extend below the quick release when at full power, otherwise your power lines will be uneven. Those bungee lines are a wear-item on the bar and should...

Re: NKB/Duotone allen key

It is a 3/32 inch hex key, so 2,38125mm. Very close to the 2.5mm that M3 bolts use. The 3/32 inch hex key fits both imperial and metric (although a bit loose in a 2.5mm hex bolt) but a 2.5mm hex key won't fit the duotone bolts. I was confused about this also at first because the differences are so s...

Re: Seat Harness for Foil Racing

Ion sonar is a big improvement over the dakine vega for me, seems to last longer and has a better fit although the fat neoprene leg straps can be a bit tight. The vega just lasts one season and was annoyingly riding up my butt crack to the point it's becoming painful on longer tacks pushing in races.

Re: How do you add stitching to sleeves of kite line?

Other than with splices, on sleeved line the strength comes from the stitches holding the lines together. So it is really important to pierce the line inside the sleeve and use enough stitches and strong thread.

Re: Infexion Max bar / Seatbelt Quick Release

Correct, but it needs to be redesigned/sized up the be strong enough. Current design fails at 220kg. Should be enough for low winds, but better have one that can also be used overpowerd.
