I found this great little utube mod thats inexpensive (if you have multiple) and a simple way to
make your standard plastic ronstan pully safer when it all goes pearshaped
For the Morons who dont have the plastic pulleys - piss off and read a C kite thread
I have been kiting for 6-7 years, i dont up grade kites that offen, still use the first of the REVs
I have never had a pully fail.
Yeah, and you should bolt a metal bar down the centre of your board in case that snaps, and double up the depower line incase that breaks and carry a second helmet incase you lose that one etc etc
I'll second that. 10 years of kites with pulleys and I have had one pulley seize up in that time. None have broken. None have shown any signs of wear.
The pulley saver would make sense if you were doing and epic ocean crossing. For normal riding it looks like an unnecessary complication.
You guys that have problems with pulleys need to look at your setup/packdown process.
Ohhhhhh it seems the ME ME ME d/heads are bagging a general safety topic that doesnt cover just a few - but covers all those who just aprreciate someone thinking about SIMPLE safety fixs
Just goes to show you that the same few - never look at the average kiter on the beach whos just wraps the kite up sand n all, gets put straight into the bag until next kite session..1 days time or 3 months !!!
The funniest part is that FigJam d/heads who bag safety topics will always winge about having to save those same people that come unstuck!
Freakn idiots - why do you wear a safety leash again
That is a ingenious invention, however it seems like a bit of over engineering when you could just replace those pulleys with ronstan orbit blocks.
Best way is buy a kite without pulleys, personally I carnt be arsed poncing around with pulleys when I can be out kiting
Some 2-line kites had pulleys. ^^^
Bwa haa haa haa
You Morons should just HTFU and go back to 2 line kites without pulleys since you dont need this or that...
Bwa haa haa haa
P.s Cauncy - go read the 3rd line down in the original
Pss. 4 red thumbs hey it helps put the colour in my cheeks when Im readn crap or having one something to Ponder about while im in there anyway
STW, you're a bit sensitive today.. Should have just posted what is helpful advice in that video and let it be - IMO.
Instead you hang around watching your thread and call everyone that replies "morons & d/heads"?
I'll just put it down to the time of month for ya... Breathe dude..
BTW, Cauncy's comment is legit. He doesn't have C kites, he has damn good bridled kites that don't need pulleys
STW, you're a bit sensitive today..
I call it leveling the playing field
so the same old Punters behind a their wee keyboards will realise that their stupid crapping about a OT subject gets noticed...
Put simply for you idots
If you like Naish, but not Slingshot... dont go tossing off in a Slingshot thread
If you dont have anything RELEVANT to add to a topic - then STFU
