Was wondering if anyone had any advice on the ride engine and Naish torque set up. Since I ride with the fixed hook from Ride Engine its a pretty snug fit with the torque chicken loop and donkey dick. I'm just a little concerned that if anything went wrong and I needed to pull the release that the donkey dick wouldn't thread through the harness and would get caught. I really like the fixed hook as am not a fan of the slider but I'm just trying to make sure that I can actually release if the time ever comes.

I know Jesse Richman works with both of those brands (Naish and Ride Engine), could be worth asking him directly. I posted this in the other board, but he has something called the Premier Club on his website that allows you to connect with him directly.

Hope this helps.

Maybe you should go out into waist deep water and pull the release and see what happens.
While you're at it - practice self rescue procedures.

just so happens... I accidently hit my quick release tonight trying to learn to foil. slid right through the ride engine slider rope. And, FWIW, I don't see how it could get caught.

He was asking about Naish attached to the Ride Engine HOOK, not the rope.
