I have a RRD Type wave - I also use this kite for handle passes, but I have to put my leash on the chicken loop as a "suicide leash".
I have had a couple of times where, after failing a handle pass, the kite has simply looped in the power zone, dragging and half killing me 200 meters over water, and then 50 meters over land - scary
This looping has happened quite a few times now - and, no, it doesn't crash into the water - it stays in the power zone looping - weird
Has anyone got a system or seen a system that alloes you to do this with the RRD type wave bar.
I have tried attaching a line further up the fifth line, and running it down through the bar, but because of the pully system, the and of this line lengthens and shortens when I move the bar.
So I am looking for a good idea to improve the safety to myself here - or wanting to hear if anyone has used another bar (more normal type with fifth) on the RRD Type wave - I want to keep using these kites if I can, as I love the turning speed of them.
I am asking Simone (RRD Kite designer) for some ideas, but want to hear from anyone out there who is mybe hacing the same issues.
Any serious helpfull ideas would be appreciated.
