I'm a long time lurker an I can't say thank you enough to those folks (completely independent from brands) for providing constructive feedback around safety issues (deniska being one of them).
Critics like theirs are pushing brands for higher standards that we can all benefit from.


So-called ambassadors like this should have no place on this forum ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Here at duotone we normally take people like deniska to the side of the road and shoot them, it puts them out of their misery, it's the humane thing to do.. :wink:

I had 8x 2h each sessions on my Sensor 3+ now and during last few sessions I had closely monitored power line for wear and so far I didn’t notice anything.
I got my kite set & bar back in September.
I don’t rinse, dry or do any special bar treatment steps that some people recommend here, only splash some sea water after kiting.
It would be interesting to hear from other people how much they rode on sensor 3+ and if they seen any wear?

I have now received a sensor 2 power line and ring set under warranty. It fits perfectly and after 8 sessions there is no sign of wear. The dealer and Australian distributor were very helpful about the mater. I am pleased Core has acknowledges a problem and is working on a solution... hopefully this thread has done its job and forced their hand.

Can you guys take some pictures of replacement part and old one? It would interesting to see if they changed anything and if yes did they implemented into recent once?

Any updates on this guys? I am about to purchase a sensor 3 that has this replament part installed from core. Does it address the issue? Also is the issue with the chicken loop release that was reported before addressed? And the issue with the pu tube on the lines getting stuck when releasing that was reported on the sensor 2, is this still an issue with sensor 3?

I am changing from the 2020 north navigator due to the auto spin option on the core bar that I really liked when I tried it out, but this thread seems to show 3 quite big issues that all affect the system system specifically.

Thanks

I just ordered Core rope loop.

But, I checked it before, and I'm not sure guys about your hands but the force needed to open it HUGE!

Are you all fitness maniacs or Schwarzenegger's?????
