That's why I wanted the picture, it was hard to see but I imagine that would be a possibility. A quite Chinese solution they have there... combined with the fact they do it the other way on the rears...PugetSoundKiter wrote: Front lines (A) have the 3 bridle lines loops thru the rings, so you can't disconnect the bridle till you cut the ring off.
While maybe I haven't used my Panshs enough but the white line seems quite durable though maybe it is not strong enough. I am a fan of pulley line about 1.5mm thick it is quite sufficient and light. 2mm would give plenty of margin if wear is a concern. Flysurfer uses 2mm and that is covered so only part provides strength. I have made 3mm before and I think it is far too thick and heavy. I am not too concerned with breakage as I have had it happen many times, mainly with FS pulley lines. I ride such that it is not an issue and I have ridden back to shore many a time with a broken pulley line. It is easy for me to spot a line that is getting near breaking, so I could replace, but it is surprising how long they can still hang on. If I am to partake in risky activity, I can replace things for new before hand.PugetSoundKiter wrote: The previous Aurora, A15, Genesis kites used white lines thru the pulleys that look a little less than 2mm dia. The Aurora3 has the same on the B pulley but the C pulley has an even smaller black spectra line that looks maybe 1.5mm dia. I removed/cut the rings off and plan to replace the B pulley, C pulley, and A line with stronger 2.8mm, 7/64" amsteel.
