Have contacted the dealer og they have sendt it on so that is fine at the moment.
If it seem that I am bashing a brand I am sorry, but got so annoyed over that this one pump system has kind of big consquens when a strutt leaks.
Why doesnt Naish use the SS type one pump? (Royalties,...)
Does there exist a kit to convert to multi pump? (Need to block off all the holes in the LE and Struts)
no, I personally think there are advantages and disadvantages to every system. The external system, also has its problems, like deflate, like the system pushing through the canopy upon crashing the kite, the hose coming off, and deflating the kite since few use the locks.....if you do the hoses also gets sun and might fail earlier. One of the advantages of the internal one pump system, is it's ability to distribute pressure if wrapped in the surf.
Now before you say I bash the systems I don't because generally there are so few problems with any of them, that they are well worth having.
I would not think twice on having either of them. It would not make my purchasing decision, but two kites everything but a multi pump and a one pump system I would pick the one pump system any day.
Now this thread will turn into the my dad is bigger than your dad of the "oh I hate one pump system" discussions.
The only way to convert to multi pump is to buy new bladders. I would not worry, there are so few problems with the systems...if there were a lot of problems people would just not buy the gear. It i s really that easy.
