Hi
I just have a general question about the SLE 3 bar’s kook proof line configuration. I noticed that the kook proof setting is the opposite from my Core kite. That is on the Rise kite, the front bridles on the kite are knotted and the rear bridle has larks heads. On my Core kite, it is the opposite, my front bridle has larks head loops and the rear bridles are knotted. This makes it cumbersome to use the SLE 3 bar on my Core kite and the Core ESP bar on any Rise kite.

So I was wondering if there was any kook proof standard existing in the world and if adhering to such a standard would make your SLE bar much more acceptable for use on other brand kites.

kind regards
