This is not my experience with the internal strap on v16 or on the p18 either. Only thing the strap does in light wind is to slow down the kite so you can't build up apparent wind. Jumps are higher but more difficult to land...MonkeyAir wrote:We use the 60 cm bar for all the venom sizes and it works very well. We even go to 25 and 20 m lines for wave and high wind applications on a 60 cm bar. The 50 cm bar will work on the 16V but the 60 has a definite benefit for quick turning in the lighter end of this size kites range. On the internal strap, there are differing views.
You HAVE to try it with the tight rear strap, this allows working the kite and power at the low end. This is why my 200 pounds and a 19 V on 25 meter lines and the little 5'10" twin fin is out when you are on your big 17 Speed and large board. You are allowing the back to open up loosly and spill power with the 19V. The strap DOES equate to power in MANY scenarios. Light, light wind is the biggest one.

Had the entire P quiver as well. Have you tried running your rear lines looser and the internal strap tight? The kites don't stall at all and apparent wind is increase by the ability to snap the kite around and keep it moving. I am talking 10 mph average and dropping to less on a 19 V. There is no way to keep the kite moving with the rear strap loose in this sort of stuff. The V 16
