Re: North Below the bar depower

I've done the same but vice versa, did this on a liquid force bar for a friend who just couldn't get on with the below the bar depower. you can adjust the cleat up and down on the north bar.

Add a ball to your 5th line where it attaches to the suicide ring. This won't work as the ball won't move more than an inch or 2 at the most because the scucide ring is attached to the chicken loop. If you put a smaller ring just above the suicide ring on the 5th line and have bit of rope long enou...

Re: 50% off this Weekend sale

Re: Ozone 2009 clamcleat trim needed

I have used a megatron chicken loop with plastic sheath with one of these and some trim line, cheaper option if you can't get what you are looking for.

Re: Kite sales..

If you have a specific kite ie wave/freeride kite go buy something different ie something with loads of hang time that way you have the best of both worlds.

Re: adding 5th line to bridal kite

I e fitted a 5th line to a naish cult 15m, worked great and like you were saying, checking how it fly's and works in low wind is key.
