Its the only thing I have found that I think could be improved on the Fearless - that baby sits so deep in a turtle that it wears on the bridle (but its worth it!). My SUL is a few JLs away from coming undone!
The Light and Standard have much thicker bridle there, but they are getting a little "fuzzy".
I put some clear tape between the standoffs which seems to have slowed down the wear. I will look into your solution.
I know I do far more tricks-per-minute on my Fearless than any other kite that I've owned, so I imagine the wear may be no worse than others seen that way.
Its sort of like having to replace tires on a high performance sports car more often than you do on a minivan, I guess.
