I have already chimed in 2 or 3 times on this post. I'm not sure what issue remains that you'd like me to address.
I have also chimed in on your leaking bladder many times before, in private messages and in public. You responded once, but have not responded since then. As I told you in the latest PM to which you did not respond, "Regardless, if you're having a problem with a leak on a new bladder it is almost certainly a warranty issue and I'm assuming you've worked with your dealer to sort it out. If you have not done so or you need assistance with this please let me know."
That offer still stands. I'm really sorry that you have a bladder in your brand new kite that leaks. It happens sometimes, regardless of the brand, year, or model. Unless there's some weird extenuating circumstance, we have always replaced those bladders. I have no idea why you still have a leaking bladder so many months after you purchased the kite. If working with your dealer has not worked out for you for any reason, please contact me directly so I can solve your issue.

Look I get your position regarding five lines, no bridles, etc etc
But mate your position seems extremely simplified. No pulleys, no bridles, five lines is best.
Yet companies like north, cabrihna, airush, naish have been developing wings, bars, bridles etc etc for years, with large R and D input both in money and man hours and the best riders in the world to test these developments...in all disciplines of kiting.
This whole 'these large companies are forgetting, don't care, bla bla bla' is just utter bullshit. The industry is still so small they al want to produce the best product available.
Then we start bashing the strong canopy material they use...like we know what the f*** we are talking about!
Just ride, if ya don't like it, move on but don't claim to have the edge on design, construction, wing dynamics, production marketing...etc etc
It's all talk and no walk, some others have built successful international companies for a reason. Not us.
Static bridles, pulleys, double rip stop, no bridals, fifth lines...high Y, low Y, single line, double flag rararararara..bla bla
It all depends on the particular kite...there is not one hard and fast rule. You ride enough kite over enough years you get that.
It all depends...and yet here we have yet again a post on kite were all the fucken experts are trying to make out there is something inherently wrong with the dice.
There isn't, move on if ya don't like it.
