Re: Chrono V1 tip tucking

Well to increase depower you increase ZBC in the same ratio as the mixer 4:2:1. ....... But you may find your B and C are not quite correct doing it that way. foilholio, shuld it be rather ZCB and not ZBC in relation to ratio 4:2:1 I made Z longer by 5 cm and A shorter by 2. Now my Pulsion 18 depow...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

https://images91.fotosik.pl/13/ab815e873c928ea4med.jpg Finally I’ve done a small modification to Soul 6. Put little removable brakes at vents openings. Yesterday in gusty side-of 15-30 knots Soul behaved nicely. Slower through power zone; stayed deeper in WW = didn’t overfly in lulls. Happened 4-5 ...

Ultimately you just don't see any great innovation from the big brands. The bar is a simple device, it is best not overdone, kept lite, efficient, functional.
I would like the bar you can feel under water if you grab it correctly or not. Simple thing to improve safety.

Re: Chrono V1 tip tucking

Mixer test often does this, because of Z shrinkage in the bridle. Z adjustment is so much simpler, to do and understand. B and C really do not need to be touched, unless you are "really" fine tuning, or changing the B limit for depower, which you still alter Z for aswell. I wonder how the above fix...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

From my experience, explosion is connected with high kite speed. The smaller the kite, the stronger the wind and higher kite speed. Looking at Pansh offer, smallest is 7m and the speed may be not enough for kite explosion. Sizes 6,5,4 are much closer to explosion. I would prefer a walve that release...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

My recommendation remains: put the PMA back to normal and shorten C by 0.5-1 cm and fly the kite at least 20 hours. Sounds interesting. A small step in the direction of self-stable profile. I will try. Just before hiting the water kite has max speed that creates max pressure inside. This stiffens k...
