Do they changed the chickenloop?
What I saw on their web page is something like from 2004...

I suppose It's too long and not centering when unhooked...

Yeah well, you are of course entitled to believe so. However I ride the Flexifoil Hadlow bar, so I actually know. It is very nice bar setup that is easy to hook back in etc. !!
It is soo nice that it is long so you can ride with semi stretched arms which is much less hard on your elbows etc.

So you should really try before bashing my friend !! :thumb:

There's no any Flexifoil to try...

I always worry about the lenghth of chickenloop, many modern kites have a bit long for me.

In order to keep the right stance, I have to hold the bar close, this is my body (tall and thin).
And the bar goes a bit away after gaining speed or in gusts, so with long chickenloop I have to brake my stance or trim the kite like crazy

And I hate the beautiful Wainman chickenloop of similar construction, and all my friends hate it because its not fixing and you spend a couple of unpleasant seconds to hook in.
But there are alot of people here on forum, who like this Wainman chikenloop very much...
It's a great pity for them, that in 2012 Wainman changing not so much, but chickenloop of course, after the numerous claims from dealers I suppose:-)
