    Talking figure 9 translations

    heu all, I just received my figure 9's and looking at the instructions/warnings I found something funny
    either they are being overly cautious with the english speaking people 50 lbs/22.5 kg
    or they want to kill everyone who doesn't speak english, it's stated at 150 lbs/67.5 kg for french, spanish and german
    might have to contact niteize to inform them

    There are two sizes of Figure 9's. The weights shown are for the two sizes, so I wonder if it was just stating both or if they had a mis-print.

    I have to admit I never actually looked at the instructions when I got them.

    I wonder if the states uses "safe working load" and the others use something like "break strength"??

    nah it's clearly a misprint, I sent them an Email and they were happy to find out about the error they didn't specify if it was in an effort to thin out the herd or if they were overly cautious though...
