Kite U.S. Forums _ Knowledge Center _ broken chicken loop lines

Posted by: dan cote Aug 10 2006, 07:14 PM

while out riding on monday i had my ckicken loop line break on me on one of my bars. luckily i have another bar so i switched to that one. the next day while out riding my chicken loop line on that bar broke as well.

just a warning to people to be cautious and take a look at your lines before u go out to make sure that they are not fraid or damaged because it sucks when u don't a bar to use when one or your lines break

i ran across a post on kiteforum about this problem and some of the guys recomend waxing the line or putting a peice of tubing around it if u can fit it. there was also some other sailing stuff that u could use but it sounded like it costs alot of money.

just be aware of the conditions of your lines

Tin Man
Tim told be a while back to wax my lines and have been doing it ever sence... Seems too work great. candle or a bar of surfboard wax.

Just my 2 cents

do you melt the wax in a pot and dip it in or just rub it on the line?

hey mike.. hows things in the great white north?

i just rub it in once a month or so... more if needed... depending on use.

hopefully soon I'll get up your way kiteing
