Flying my Fuel as a fifth line

Postby kitedawg » Wed Oct 11, 2006 8:00 pm

I have a 04 Fuel that was made to be a four line kite. Does anyone know if the pump leash attachment will be strong enough to hold a fifth line?


Cheers,

I've done it for two years without a problem.

I’ve read that Slingshot recommends the pump leash attachment point be reinforced before you use it for fifth line. Especially if you are using the Online cleatable fifth line system.

Hey darktanyan,

Are you doing it with this system? Is it working?

I use the naish shift system bar. It works very good!.
I did not reinforce the pump leash.
If indeed you use the cleat system, due to the pressure it can damage the kite

good luck.
