Hello, I have finalized my latest idea for a powder cord / leash combination. I have been tinkering with various ideas for a while now, and have built many prototypes. My last thread had so many different pictures on it that I decided to just start a new thread. I have tried to find suppliers of high quality low cost mini biners for a while now without much success. All of the biners are either really poor quality or too expensive, so I worked out a way around the biner connection to the ski. I wanted a quick way to attach to the ski, so that it is easy to deal with for riding trams, snow cats, etc.. Also, I really like the leash aspect of this design, the idea being to retain the ski during a gentle fall or inadvertent release, but to break away during dynamic falls leaving the powder cord attached to the ski. This is important if skiing in difficult, remote terrain or if getting caught in a slide. There was a lot of discussion on this in the old thread.
If any one would like to order a pair of these, just send me a private message. I am charging $43.00 for these including first class shipping to the lower states.
I can still sew the more basic simple powder cords if anybody wants them, but the new design is so much more convenient, and reliable, I would really like to encourage folks to take a good look at them.
