Thanks actualy I looked through the long chicken loop bye bye thread and forgot who was the author of the scewdriver handle quick release. I had made one and it still works... I use it for lighwind foiling bar, not sure how reliable it would be under heavy load.

Dont use those as main release, it can accidently release super easy!
better to buy the one from igohigh.it or kitelab.pro If you want something that last forever and is the best there is buy from @eat_sleep_foil_repeat on Instagram they are made with titanium and ceramic bearings! And handle hiiigh loads 🤗👍🏻

I am not sponsored or anything to say this….

Cheers

Well yes the diy release made with a pin does not need much force to eject but that is the goal - I don't recommend making them that was an experiment.
Thanks for mentioning the QR's they really look like the original one from infexion, at least same principle.
I reckon that is a very smart idea, I know foilers who use and find it compact and safe.
No risk for the hands, and seatbelt click-in as opposed to a pin release.

Is there a reason why you recommend all these copies and not the one made by the guy who invented it? I mean, I can't see any major flaw in the original after more than a year of use, so why not support the inventor for his brilliant work? OK, the bearing guy making them with titanium and ceramic bearings may be on to something a bit beyond the original, but he does not seem to have a shop or anything like that.

The pioneer is ofcourse Evan, infexion.eu and there is a reason why guys like @kerstenfelix use his release and trust it while flying Off cliffs 💪🏼😊
