Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

(... )big and bulky design, pia to shorten the CL (...) I don't have any problem with the size of the CL. Not too small, not too big, just riiiiiiight! (I'm 6'2 though). But yeah, main issue is that it's discontinued. I need to get spares while I can! You can still get some spares, including a shor...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

Peter. The new ozone QR is no longer a simple knot. It’s a loop, more like the Kite Attitude attachment. 7FBC87D0-9C98-4AE5-B93A-EEE3651C48B2.jpeg D66154CF-36C7-467E-87F4-1F9A2FC644B3.jpeg Just to be clear. The fat line in the middle is the safety/flag out line. The de power line is looped around th...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

P_20191129_132050.jpg P_20191129_132002.jpg See, you don't even need to open the CL to replace any of the lines. Ample room in there. On second pic, you can see grub screws, they bite into the depower line PU cover, probably so that when you rotate the top to untwist your lines, they don't turn at ...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

You could splice a loop into braided dynema line to hook around the ‘rotor’ and then give you a single line to go into the cleat? A long bury would give double thickness in the most wear prone area?

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

I’m not sure ozone are still making these as some places have run out of stock. However, the good news is there are plenty about on the 2nd hand market as folks are converting to the click in version.

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

+1 for Bragnouff. That was my main point but I was reluctant to simply state it because I have not had hands on experience with this qr. I will try and improve my communication skills! I also suspect it would be easy enough to fit your own customised loop! Customised short loop: C5CFDE40-2974-4BC8-...

Anybody can recommend a dyneema line that's not slippery for pigtails?
A blob of Cyanoacrylate glue on a knot in dyneema will stop any slippage.
Just try it. Doesn’t seem to be affected by subsequent water immersion.
Makes it pretty difficult to remove the knot at a later date though.

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Are you guys making the bar completely airtight or do you have a small hole somewhere? I am a bit scared my bar will crack if I bring it on a plane... I would suggest it either needs to be completely airtight or completely open (to drain easily). Anything that is nearly airtight is likely to take o...

Where is a best place to buy a 22/18 carbon tube, online, shipped to Europe?
Thanks!
I can’t say it’s the “best place” but this is one option:

Re: Pocket foilboard divynicell 80 core Ghetto build tips?

Back to the original topic, a high density foam ghetto build (no rocker table or vacuum). Two questions: 1 Would it be possible to bend 25mm thick 75gm2 PVC foam using a heat gun? https://www.easycomposites.co.uk/#!/core-materials/closed-cell-foam-and-3dcore/easycell75-closed-cell-pvc-foam-core.htm...
