  • Brian: The bar is a little more complex than necessary in my opinion. Remove the backline adjusters, replace the trim loop and strap. It is true, just above the release mechanism of the loop there is only one layer of webbing, sooner or later it will fail. Other posible weak point are the small webbings that holds the metal rings at the top of the trim strap (where the little...

  • I have a X2 20. Is a sweet big kite. Turns nice and jump well. Very stable. Very difficult to water relaunch (as othes big ones). Newer kites are faster and shallower in draft so their low end is not so good. The wind range for a 20 is 10 knots to 16 to have fun and jump. --- In kitesurf@^$1, "kiteripper " wrote: > --Hi , > i have the cabrinha b.t 20 mtr 2003 . The last big kite i...

  • Go for the 142. I have one and it will work very well as your only board. I use mine with all my kites (8-20). I only use other board on marginal or too gusty conditions (a wider one). The 137 could work as well for your weight (I am 79kg). --- In kitesurf@^$1, "kujira99jp " wrote: > Hi, > I have been using a WT 137 for the last few months and I love it- my > kitesurfing has...

  • Interesting setup. Some questions: Is the depower line rigid enough to transmit the rotational torque of the front lines spreader to the swivel? Or the leash (tension) has a mayor role on that? I was thinking on a spinning setup that use a similar system for aligning the fronts with the kite. Instead of a standard sliding leash I want to try a "line inside the depower rope" as the...

  • For your weight, 10 Kt and up, 140 x 37 is an allround TT. If you ride choppy conditions a Wavetray style (flip tips) will do the job smother. Volume do nothing in a tray. Big fins helps in chop. If you like volume, then you must go for a "classic" TwinTip as wipikas Orly 160 or takoon's. They ride smooth and float a little more. A tray has less volume but it rides faster having...

  • Nick: You are right, it does't look as a full FREE spinning leash system. It just solves the BIG problem associated with front and/or sliding leashes. the leash being tangled around the depower and THE BAR. This will make the leash becomes unusable after few spins. With the Bump & Jump leash going inside the depower rope, you will get the fronts twisted but not the depower and bar...

  • I agree with "theflyingtinman" that the sliding ring leash setup is the mainstream solution this days. But things changes, and the latest and (have to be proven yet) more interesting leash setup is the Bump & jump spinning leash. (Said to be adopted by Wipika for 2004) It is a full wingspan independent leash that goes inside the depower rope, it doesn't need a swivel to work so you...
