The first company to produce a quality QR for those who never unhook ...

... is going to clean up (imo). No hook, no Chicken Loop, no Donkey Dick, and all that pointless shit.

Just saying.

Unnecessarily complicated, that's back to the future with Wichard releases. Null points, sorry Toby. :wink:

There's a pretty nice choice of super small chicken loops and rope sliders to choose from on the market right now in addition to minileashes. Or you can just open the chicken loop and hook it to your spreader loop. The default option is still to give a beginner a old style setup with waist harness. Takes a while for fashion to change.

To be honest I don't care about that.

What I do care about are harnesses with rear leash attachments. They should all be eliminated. So dangerous

I see what they are doing on the pro circuit there's no such thing as a kgb or slim that only does one half rotation. They are all doing 3s 5s 7s and have to wrap the leash around themselves a couple times to do a trick. So there's no level left where a rear leash makes any sense not for beginners not for pros not for anyone.

Cab’s new Modular system is another concept that could eventually be designed to just click into a spreader bar directly... no hook & no loop!

You can buy one today. The plastic housing is a prototype (3D printed), works well and should last a few years at least. Need only one QR for all your bars!

I have one. Certainly not going back to the hook and the chicken loop QRs.
