Wow Dave.

Great minds thing alike :-) Pretty much the same as my system I use now. Works great and is clean.

Thanks mate - the more I use this setup the more I love it - straps/cleats/trim - it all seems like extra 'stuff' without adding anything useful to my ride. I was very happy to be able to get a main-stream kite brand sold on the concept and more riders able to experience the same stoke.

However its not the setup for everyone - you need to know how to trim your bars/kites correctly and check/adjust often. I recently adjusted a 2 year old bar for a friend that I found was 150mm over-sheeted due to the rear lines shrinking, she was complaining about needing lots of trim line pulled in just to ride! :o For sure this is not the setup for her.

Cheers
