Re: how to make a line set out of Q-power

If you don’t want to have the double lines of the loop, I guess another option is to use spliced hollow core dynema for the 1st 10m (or so) of the flagout line and then continue with Qpower line (terminated with fig 8 knotted loops)?

Re: Kiteboarding apps for Garmin watches

The watch records the metrics, then when i home it uploads to garmin connect, if you use the garmin virb camera that has accelerometer and gyroscope, which in theory allow you to capture turn/spin g force and climb rate data, as said previously the altimeter is useless, its designed for pilots. Sor...

Re: Kiteboarding apps for Garmin watches

I use the forerunner 935, used it countless times kiteboarding, the only metrics i use are distance traveled, time,max speed, i use it as a tool for tracking the use of the kite, you can set the kite as a piece of equipment, every time you select the kite activity it'll log the time used, distance ...

Re: Bridle Line Replacement Material

For info, you can splice loops in the ends of robline. Well you can in the larger sizes..haven’t tried with 2mm. What I have done is simply pull back the outer braid, create a loop and bury the tail in the core (standard hollow braid). Pull the outer braid back over the splice. Run a sewing machine ...

Re: Shorten kite lines ?

As mentionend tapering of the inner line part of a brummel splice is crucial for long time breaking strength. But unfortunately this procedure takes most of the time for preparing the splice, usually. Stepping the fibres out and cutting them, to thin the line out, is the most annoying and time cons...

Re: Shorten kite lines ?

The reason I said it is because the strength isn't crazily reduced by a figure eight loop (but it is indeed well reduced with a simple knot on the line). And I've done it quite a bit over the years, and I'm still there to tell the tale. If you were using super thin race lines, rated for the minimum...

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

One option would be to just use the release instead of the Pintxo wichard/ball release? No, 1:1 exchange doesn´t work. If you look at the mechanical details of the Kauper setup, it should get clear. Maybe I wasn’t clear. I meant leave the Kauper primary (flag out) release as is and just replace the...
