harness updates
« on: March 01, 2020, 02:58:15 AM »
are there some harness updates?
big brands are not producing a dedicated harness foil so as far as i understand from your recommendation the best harness right now is from dakine...
I have a Duotone (so with boom), what is the correct length of the cord to attach at the boom?
thanks!

This harness line. It works on handle wings too because you can untie and reassemble on the handle.

For harnesses, the Dakine Cameleon is still king. Itís softer and more flexible than Dakineís new minimalist harness. Just be sure to remove the seat. Itís attached with velcro.

Leave it to NSI, nice stuff. Thatís a substantial improvement over my simple belt and maniac Hook, though I think having the option of shoving the hook to the side or back trumps having padding. Iíll drop by there next week and show them what Iíve been doing and perhaps they can come up with something in between.

Saw some pics of a new rideengine wing harness somewhere that looked really nice but can't seem to find them......

Ozone has a wing specific harness coming. Looks like a stripped down snow kite harness.

Get an RDX neoprene weight belt and stick a hook or reel leash and uv got a perfect wing harness.

I just finished a copy of the NSI plastic hook.
Will test it tomorrow on a normal waist harness and if it works i will get a diver belt with nylon buckle and add board and wing leash attachments.
The NSI plastic hook is super simple, but initial impression of my copy is very good, stays in the right position,can be slid out of the way and it flops flat if you lay down on it.Cool.

Thatís what Iím talking about finally a company making a decent ďsimpleĒwinging belt/ harness,although the plastic hook looks nice like to see a backing plate like the maniac hook where belt webbing threads through enables bit more stabilization of hook,if they do this pretty close to a home run for NSI Iím definitely going to test one out props to NSI

I've thought a million times about trying to buy NSI--but I decided I'd just fuck it up. It's a super cool little company that does serious manufacturing in a tiny space. My shop is five times the size and one-tenth the efficiency. They're just flat-out smart. A zillion companies could have grabbed up distribution of RSPro stuff--hell, I thought about it--but NSI did it. Everything they make is useful, and everything they distribute is top-notch. A lot of it gets made right in that dinky shop. Amazing.
