... hey Billy, thanks for the review and info!
It appears the struts are still made of the D2 material which makes me a little nervous with the struts being pumped up to 10 psi and added to the fact that the bridle is attached, will the struts handle it and more specifically, will the material handle it over the life of the kite??
To explain my reasoning behind my question is, I have a mate who reckons his 2013 Dyno flew better with the struts pumped up hard and I think he regularly pumped them up to 8 and 10 psi. I on the other hand owned a 2011 Dyno which split many times so religiously kept my struts at 6 psi. I tried it a few times (nervously), but my 2013 flew fine with 6 psi so I stuck with the recommended pressure.
Anyway, unfortunately my mate split the middle strut along one of the long seams near the valve and while we were fixing it I noticed the material looked a little bulge in the smaller segmented parts of the strut. To me, it looks like he'd been pumping it up too much, too many times.
So, if the 2015 is the same, ie constrution and materals used as the 2013, will it stand up to the extra load of the bridle attachments on the struts instead of the LE? Maybe my logic is wrong and now that the load is spread out, and it is in fact less load,,,, just guessing here, I suppose only Ken Winner would know????
Can you tell if the construction or indeed the material is different in the 2015 to the 2013 so it can stand up to the 10psi over the life of the kite?
Thanks again for your time,
