That bar almost killed me also.

For starters there is no quick release on the chicken loop, so you have to sheet the kite in fully before you can unhook/release it.

When I did let go of the bar, the wrist leash was wrapped around the winding post on one end so the kite went into a death spiral instead of flagging out.

I think I got dragged by one arm for 5 or 6 kite loops before it finally hit the water.

I would like to thank all of the guinea pigs that started before me. Smile

Is the sheeting system on the bar in the pic stock or modified?
