Hey so I'm having a bit of trouble when popping to blind hooked in. I'd say about fifty percent of the time everything goes well, the other half when I land my chicken loop pops off and all of a sudden I'm unhooked.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I do a fair bit of blind and never had a problem.

Which bar and which harness, I had the same trouble when I bought the new mystic harness.

Best 2013 bar pat love harness, but I reckon it must be a technique thing.

I found that the non hammer head style hooks are much more likely to slip the cl, so much so that I went back to a older hammerhead mystic hook.

Nice yeah my harness is non hammerhead style and my donkey Dick is flimsy as hell. Unfortunately changing harness isn't an option, I'm in deepest México!

Right finally figured it out!

I was riding with the kite too low, around 9.30 which meant that as I popped and rotated the cuff twisted out from underneath the harness hook.

Have found that if I keep the kite at 1:30-11 all is good.

Super happy chappy!
