That's just his style. If he liked 5 lines he would already have 5 lines. With his style, he is always crashing his kites in huge surf, 4 lines is better here.

They might not pay him much, but keeping his quiver full is a cheap way to ride redbull's coattails until/unless he finds a kite he likes better than the fuel.

But it does not seem to me that he has been very involved in developing SS as brand, or their gear or anything like that?....

Len10 did contribute heavily to the Lunacy board design which was an extremely popular board for SS and once released, similar designs emerged from other brands. But, SS doesn't make the Lunacy any more. He doesn't have a pro model board or kite, he is just synonymous with the Fuel and that kite will continue to carry the freestyle-badass trophy even if Ruben leaves the brand.
So, Youri probably sold a lot more RPMs than Len10 sold Fuels...but no doubt Len10 has brought more notice to the brand.
