yo sean,
i got lotsa sail tape(black / white) you can have as much as you want.
if your gonna tape it i would put the tape on the inside of the LE sleeve as well as outside.
scott,
it's way easier to just grab the CL and unhook than messin around with one of those QR doohickies. Imagine if motorcyles had a donky dick w/a quick release.

That mod is primarily for gently self landing my kite on the beach.
I wasn't really discussing quick releasing in a dangerous situation or anything by pulling on that line.
That would just steer the kite one way real quick if you did that hooked in (YIKES).
The technique I use for self landing actually requires to unhook prior to doing it, btw.
I don't pull a QR or anything to self land.
Does night riding seem possible any time soon, Bayflite?

Thanks for the offer bro! I'm in Palm Harbor, so I'll have to meet you on the water somewhere the next time i'm in st. pete. Black/White works fine for me, I don't care about matching colors. I just want my 16m to get me through one more season.

I think so. Not sure what we are agreeing on, but if it's you, we probably agree.
