Someone on this very forum suggested cutting half of the horizontal part of the Klingon NSI foot hook so I did, I like it much better! Because there is now less lever force on it I still use 4 screws into inserts but like this; That held up all 2014 season with many many sessions, although I almost always H20 start and fly strapless, this is just back up.faklord wrote:Yep. I'd be interested in seeing more photos of your foot hook mods.
Somehow I dont think Carrafino is going to come out with anything new, let alone fullfill his previous commitments.Europ2 wrote:You might find this thread interesting called 'Predator Straps' + special attention to the last post. .. meaning that the idea might still pop out in 2015 ....

One front and back could be good for board control during water starts, I used front and back on the skimboard and on a surfboard when learning to go strapless mostly for jumping over whitewater and doing olies, it doesnt really get in the way for transitions, obviously the predator's clutter the deck more than the klingon style but are almost as secure as straps, the klingon's require a conscience effort and alot of pressure to jump with.Arcsrule wrote:no one has mentioned a foot hook for the back foot. While I am making one for the front, I can also do for the back. would the back foot hook be useable or useless or even wanted at all?
Once positioned correctly, it is a great tactile marker to more quickly return your back foot to the sweet spot after tack/ jibe without having to look down.Arcsrule wrote: would the back foot hook be useable or useless or even wanted at all?
