ok, another boring gear question, it's time for a new harness. my current harness seems to have "shrunk" with the lack of wind in qld.
it's a prolimit freewave, best harness i've ever owned. had it for 10 years now and it has never faultered. like it because it is a low support seat harness with a higher hook position.
so on the tables for replacement are.
dakine blaster or prolimit charger.
has anyone got anything about either. personally i think the prolimits are the best harnesses around but the dakine seems to come close.
you never listen to me anyway....
a good surf/ seat harness has high hook, particularly strong + comfortable back support.....
flying objects transit its called. around $200
how adjustable do you think the hook height is? is it just a gimic? the dakine harness also has a sliding spreader kit option. i wouldn't mind a sliding spreader bar for upwind sailing.
take the jump to a waist Justin... Sooooooo much more comfy to wear IMO, and your "boys" will thank you.
Dakine T4 is on my shopping list at the moment.
my flying objects transit had double straps both sides, so bar would not slide.
took it to stuart bell sails, he put new longer belt in on top strap and bar slides heaps.
dont know how people can sail with fixed hook.
cheers pacman, if you get an image please post it. appreciated.
the dakine harness has a strap that allows the smaller spreaders to slide. it's an optional extra listed on the dakine site.
since going from double hook to single hook i've missed the ability to power upwind.
Well I've still got that harness that I found at Wello last summer. Its a seat for a fat arse. You're welcome to it.
i'll have a look, might even throw you a beer if it does the job. what type is it?
If you want a seat harness, the Dakine XT looks pretty good and looks to have the best back support from their range which I need at the mo
mob of pussies! just use your arms you're all getting soft i think! and if you get tired use your teeth while you're arms recover
dakine XT is a sweet harness for slalom/speed
I have the Dakine XT and it's very comfy and nice on the back with a high hook,I like my old Flying objects better as the spreader bar was able to slide.After being able to slide the bar on the old one the Dakine feels a little annoying.
Chek out George Greenough's homemade harness
He also makes his own sails, carbon boom, mast n base, spoon board etc
is that an early holden seat belt! i love it. simplistic!
