Ok I snuck away from work for a few to get my Kestrel from the mail lady and try it out. SHHHHH! I climbed up one stick high about 7' was adjusting it getting the feel of it.. Everything was GREAT! until..... I was turning in different positions and when I rotated for a straight down shot I got a fall shock! ( Note: you cant fall out of it ) I'm using the back strap (because years of manual labor has taken it toll on my back) the back strap is connected to the bridge by persiks and s beaners as I rotated the back strap persik went through the tether beaner and the s clip broke.. I didn't have much pressure on it just enough that it made me fall back a little thus giving the feel of falling. Question is has anyone done a mod to keep the back rest off the bridge and if so how? I have something in mind and I'm going to try in just a bit when I get back home but would like all the ideals I can get.... Also the bridge seems a little long to me does a shorter bridge create pinch? other than that it feels great very comfortable and light Love It!
