I absolutely cannot understand need for swivel. The manual ones needs to be untwist manually and the automatic ones are are jokes. Just loop kite.

Are you suggesting racers should loop their kites after each tack or jibe to untwist their lines :D ? Well no they prefer to ride with crossed lines (no big deal) as looping the kite on an upwind leg is counter productive.

When riding my surfboard one of my favourite moves is a double forward with kite loop . Untwisting my lines would need 3 consecutive down loops. A manual swivel is in my opinion more practical.

When rigging your kite a swivel allows you to attach the front lines to your kite without the need to untwist your lines (much faster).

Do you know where we can find on internet inox pin for making our own Quick release system ? I found mine on kite leash but I want a shorter one to go with this 3D shape piece :
