They fly of the front lines and fixed bridle has to do too much which means the canopy is a flappy piece of reactive crap.

You sound just like windsurfers back in the day who used soft sails in waves who said that fully battened wave sails would never catch on. Carry on. :lol:

No I sound like someone whose kites for 17 seasons and has some clue what he's talking about.

Carry on...
