Converting Bar from Low V to High V

Postby mmeyers12 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 2:00 am

Firstly, how much difference does a low v and high v make in the flying characteristics of a kite? I have just purchased an fone bandit that flies on high v bar line setup but I only have low v bars.

Does anyone know how to temporarily adapt a bar to convert it to a high v instead of a low v setup? Seems all you would need is a knot on one line at the height you wanted the high v and then a stainless steel ring to run the other line through. Has anyone tried this or have an alternative solution?
