Re: [ksurf]New Naish AR5 Pants (COM)
- View SourceHi David and and Ben
We have these incredible pants in stock now, you can have the Todds mods
insulated beer/weight pockets with dual drinking straws fitted for free.
These new Naish pants really make a big difference to your wind range,
provided you inflate them properly, from the inside, with SMG.
You will find the quick release very handy too, especially if there are any
girls around to impress.
And they only cost me $1100 for the M size, cya and :-)

It's not exactly like a TG bar - a TG type bar would have too slow a
response for 'stall-launching' I beleive the Quadrifoil bar is bent
at each end so twisting it through just 180 degrees provides a large
amount of sheeting. I've been thinking of setting up an Advance IO
bar (it has a flexible joint about 9" from each end of the bar) to do
something similar on my system so I can launch shackled in to only
one front line and keep that line loose by taking the weight on my
hang-strap. That way if I have an emergency during launch/land I
don't have to grab for the other shackle release - I just let go the
bar and I'm "leashed" on the shackled line.
