      Re: [snowkiteidaho] CV Park on Sunday It is the re-rigging that makes it so nice. Grab the comb of lines and re-rig and your back and going. No more pulling lines into bar and trying to keep kite from flying.

      On most of the older kites they tried to flag the kite out too much. A little less flagging and the kites descent can be controlled.  It works really well on the double pulley systems like on the Mantas but I have done it to my Access kites and know it will work on the older Frenzy and Element kites.

      It will take a little fine tuning so let me know if you need help.  Only part needed is a small SS Ring and knot tying skills for basic set up.

      So if the throw is effecively the same length( half of the line going to the pully and back) as the existing line before it hits the new ring, how is it any more effective then the current system?

      Chop the A-line by 54.5349734 cm (make sure you are dead-on this number)
      Remove pulley

      OMG there are no instructions

      I will have to write up a plan.

      But basically.
      Take center line and remove pulley. Cut pulley line roughly in half.

      Relocate safety top hat so that the sheeting system is the portion that is released.

      Put a link line with ring b/n outside lines.  Have it run high enough that there is enough release room, to far away and it is hard to reach. The ring is what stops the sheeting system from flying away.

      Better yet bring a six pack over for the fridge and I’ll show you how. Good beer only please ;-)

      Could you send me the instructions on the updated version of the centre line saftey release?  It looks like I will have some time to work on it before the snow appears.

      No worries Kay, I had extra harnesses. Just ask!

      As far as kiting Sunday. It was unbelievably warm, & I was sweating with just a T-shirt on.  Great day for the park even thou it was light winds (not enough for LEI kites thou) ... definitely not so good for snow :-(

      The new 09 Frenzy is a vast improvement on last years design. It feels every bit as good as the Manta now. It has lots of low end power and grunt.  Manta II is the same overall just with the improved kill system on bar(Frenzy has this also).  All the kites that I converted work much better on this new system so I advise all that can do it...”DO IT”

      This weekend is the Skyline Event in UT.  I was planning on going but the snow has not been great, they may have gotten some this weekend.  As soon as I find out I’ll update. Was anyone else interested in going Fri-Sun.
