Re: Most durable kite bar and lines

Stretching technique seems to be very important. I spend about 3 hours making one set (2 front lines, no back lines) with Jerry Brown line. My technique is a bit more dangerous that the "fuse/car" method, but produces a superior set of lines to that technique. I on 800lb Jerry brown line, I stretch ...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Sublease? Like an apartment? Licensing agreement is a better term. Thanks for clarifying. But it can be very similar to a sub lease where you lease the particular item to be rented out by you for specific periods of time within that lease from the property holder. Pretty much all of the designs wer...

Re: Damaged ribs = Seat harness....help

I use seat harnesses all the time. The few times I did give the waist harnesses a go(windsurfing, kiting, and kitewing), I hated them. Some of your ride up may be caused by body position. - try to sit in the harness! You do not look as cool, but it lowers your center of gravity and lets the "seat" p...

Re: Beginner - buy gear or more lessons?

Yes! But even though we disagree on many things I would still give the following advice - If at the above point in time, you find yourself in a forest with no bog roll at hand, do not use the "3 leafed viney looking plant leaves" to wipe with. There is no need to learn the hard way when advice can ...

Re: Best bankrupt?

That I what I was told by two best reps at different times in relation to the North CL release. The story was that North leased the "bow" design that was supposedly purchased from the Legaignoux brothers by Best. North never paid up, so Best finally just took the North CL release as payment. NOT tr...

Why aren't there any manufacturers ussing Q-Line? And it's a US only thing or what? I don't think there's a single shop in the Netherlands selling that stuff. A shop I do work for had Q-Power line until they said that we did not sell enough and dropped us. Now I use Jerry Brown braided lines in cus...

Re: F-one 9 - 12m . Inflate valve ball lost.

And it (the ball) isn't in the bladder. Only way out for the ball is the deflate valve. And that is pretty rare to come out that way. I have never had a ball come out the inflate valve, only go in. That said, I usually just chuck the ball once it gets blown inside the bladder. Add 1 extra pump when...

Re: Best bankrupt?

2018 Gear will tell all. Designed by who? When will Best's former employees get paid? How will warranty be handled if the company is unable to pay it's employee's. Didn't best buy the bow patents? That I what I was told by two best reps at different times in relation to the North CL release. The st...

Re: Beginner - buy gear or more lessons?

I think my answer is the best one yet. Your best response to this date. Again, you may have a hard time hearing how you come across in your posts. And did you really have to think about it, or was the above statement just a given for you? "I just got done taking a big shit, should I wipe my ass now...

Re: Beginner - buy gear or more lessons?

Why? Because it's a stupid question, it's something that no one can answer for him but himself. It would be like asking someone if I "Should get something to eat?" I don't know the answer to that, why don't you tell me??? Same thing here. The OP is asking if anyone has "tried the purple berries". S...
