Re: mystic stealth bar

I just modified mine last night and will try it out today. 10x7 Antal ring ($12.00 at West Marine) and some 5mm Amsteel. One slider and one fixed option. Hello, you do not need to add a "fixed" option, just thread your "sliding" option through the mini-loop. Most people do not realize that the litt...

Re: mystic stealth bar

Isn't there a high chance of the CL jumping out of the low friction ring when there is slack in the lines at some point? In my case, no, there isn't, since I had to reduce the diameter of the CL in order to fit it inside the "gutter". I actually have to pull a bit on the CL so that it goes inside. ...

Re: mystic stealth bar

I have the same bar. if the SMC doesn't work well for me, I will try that setup. Thank you ! Im also searching for that flat dyneema rope in bulk ! Most welcome! Another advantage with the friction ring and the CL around it, is that the bar is bit closer to you (important in my case as I wanted to ...

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

Well.. it is like global warning (or flat-earthers? ok, I may have gone too far on this one :) ... ) : you'll always find people stating that no, that is a conspiracy, this is the job of someone looking for attention (well, in the case of anti-vacs, it is true)...

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

IMHO, this article was pretty bad. Too much emphasis on the Diamond Princess sample set which is too small to deduce anything meaningful. And he pretty much ignores the data and deaths from China, South Korea and Italy. Also, his numbers are extremely low compared to the rest of the scientific comm...

Re: You love it - SUP and kite shop in Dusseldorf - Do not buy!

Ordered from them the most expensive kite I've ever bought, because they indeed have the best prices. Paid with paypal as advised above, just in case... Waited patiently for 2-3 weeks, until the Black Friday offers came up, and I was then tempted to cancel my order to get it quicker elsewhere, as I ...

Re: Naish Pivot 2020 does the pulley make any difference v. 2019?

^^^ what that guy said, AFAIK, Pivot always had a pulley. If you do not want a pulley, go for the Dash!
