anybody got a spare one lying around?  my centre line snapped th eothe rday, leaving me with a big swim, and no bar stopper . more annoyed over losing the bar stopper than the swim.


Cheers,
Brian

If your kite is an 09, I believe you’ll find a stopper in the kite bag..

Too bad the center line wears out so easily… I’ve flown my 09 @ 16m. four times,,,  the spectra center line looks way more worn than the 08 @50cm. bar that   I hot - waxed the center-line before I used the bar….

If you don’t wax the line, you’re asking for trouble…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have a failure of this trim / safety line,,, Your safety goes for a shit!!! 
In my opinion,, any line that your safety leash is attached to should not be subject to wear that would cause the safety device to snap/fail during such a critical event…......

You guys build great kites, but your center line trim line safety is an accident waiting to happen…

If you sold the center line pre- stretched and hot waxed,, the problem would be lessened…......

Cheers Tony…

Think about it???

There’s no way your trim/ safety line should fail,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Ever!!!!!

Imagine a sky diver having his/her canopy tear free as he pulled the rip cord…...

I was lazy this year, and I didn’t pre-wax my 09 lines,,,  Well the line wear shows how quickly a failure could happen!

I love the rise kites,, world class equipment for sure…......

The guy in the original post had to swim into shore because his center line rope failed,,,,,,,,,,,  not a good product plug….........

Pre-Wax the center-line,

Andy, are you waiting on something from me? enlighten me? I think you have mistaken for someone else?


Its an 08 Rise.  Agree with having stronger lines that wear better.  combination of factors, sand, centre hole and pulley.  i must admit i’ve never waxed my lines, but i’ll do it from now on.  if its asdvised, then prehaps they should be pre waxed.

Brian - which stopper are you looking for?  The ‘09 model or ‘08?  I’ll do some checking in my spare parts bin, if I’ve got one it’s yours, just let me know what you are looking for.
