I have a 6/4 psycho tech and to be honest I hardly use it as it's too warm. My 5/4 does the job for 90% of my winter kiting in the UK.

But if you want really warm can recommend it for sure.
Try SRFACE.com. I sent a MT back 2 months ago and am happily using a ST now.

Re: LE stitching stretches / is widening. Need to worry?

So I went to my local shop but new stitching would be more then they indicated, 65 euro. And they found another worn spot on my LE Dacron and advised to stitch a reinforcement on that also for another 65 euro. I decide that 130 euro is to much for an old kite that probably needs another repair next ...

Re: LE stitching stretches / is widening. Need to worry?

Just got a reply from my local (repair) kite shop.
They can stitch it again for 15 -20 euros.
I think I will do that first.

_put a couple clear Tear Aid type A patches over the area_
Oops, I just realize maybe I misunderstand you.
Do you mean patches on the bladder or patches on the casing?

Re: Leading Edge of Kite is Slowly Deflating

Looks like you have some small holes in your bladder. Are you sure it is the LE bladder? If you pump in up and close of the strut bladder you can check which is leaking. Sometimes leakage is caused by sand on or under the gasket of the boston valve. So check if that is nice and clean. If there are p...

Indeed good advice.

Re: Strongest bar?

Don't know about bars and never heard of anyone who broke one. I guess you could try to find out what the inside is made of. For lines I always buy mine at https://www.infexion.nl/ . Not sure if they ship to wherever you live but the guy who works there is kind of a line expert so he can probably he...
