Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations

Thanks. Looks like exactly the same blade with identical functionality but with a small amount of carrier removed.

Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations

Just ordered a full batch of the new shape (picture above is older shape). Next to the standard steel blads I also ordered a batch with ceramic blade. The ceramic blade wont rust over time but comes 2 times as expensive as the SS316 steel ones so lets see how many choose quality over quantity. I al...

Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations

But I still dont know if a 8-9mm PU covered depowercord can be cut with the one shown here. For sure not with the standard one. The Eezycut Trilobite will cut 9mm. If you want to cut 10mm+ just file down the entry shoulders a few mm. IMG20210103190810.jpg IMG20210103190728.jpg IMG20210103190700.jpg

Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations

These knives all look good when new. The big question is how they perform after 4 years of saltwater and sitting in the harness pocket without any care or attention. I recall the early ones were all totally toast. My Dakine cut well the last time I checked - which was probably 4 years into usage. A...

Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations

I use Eezycut Trilobite divers knives with harness mount and which have replaceable blades. They come in many different colours - black is not a good choice in case visibility is difficult or someone else has to grab the knife and cut you free. liking that double sidedness,,, winner so far, imo. Th...

Re: 2021: King of the Air predictions

Yup not really surprising really, no one should be travelling especially to SA where they are experiencing their second wave of the global pandemic :( https://www.iksurfmag.com/features/postponed-red-bull-king-of-the-air-2021/ To be honest, one of the last places I want to be is in an airport with ...

Re: Mystic Majestic vs Mystic Majestic X: differences in fit and comfort

I have an X but I've never tried Majestic to compare it with. I find the shape/flex combination of the X quite good for unhooking or freestyle in general. Very good support. Had RE harness before, which was much harder but very good harness as well. Mystic X stays put at the small of my back even t...

Re: Duotone 2021

Any news about EVO SLS ? I know it was about to get released in October and some shops had even had the kite on their website, but we are in December and nothing new about the release of the EVO SLS. Is it getting postponed in spring with the Vegas ? There are a handful of them in Europe as product...

Happy and Prosperous New Year to you Toby! 8)
