Wow! No kidding? I would seriously check out the method they used to put the leech line inside the velcro and make that modification as soon as possible. Leech lines are a royal pain to re-do when they wear out or break. First one I've heard of designed that way.
This is what I received from Flying Wings...
"Good morning Jason,
Yes, indeed, that is correct. The first generation SF 2.5 and SF 2.3, the Leach line were designed and built exactly like that. It is later on with the SF-Pro the leach line was enclosed inside the Velcro strap.
Thank you very much for your enthusiasm with Flying Wing's Silver Fox kites!
