Yes, my Rebel did not have the incorrect pigtails (length), and after changing the bar tuning and adding the extra knots to the front pigtails the kite flies much better.Evie_T wrote:I've been reading this thread with much interest as am about to purchase a 9m Rebel. The question is will I have to make the same adjustments to my kite when I get it home or is this only necessary on some kites?
Try one before you buy. But keep in mind that the factory default bar settings are bad! Also most people do not like to ride the kite on the factory default front pigtail. My first reaction after a session with the factory settings was: sell it back to the shop! That the difference of tuning your set-up for 5 minutes max. Complete other kite.Evie_T wrote: Should I be put off by the problems other people have experienced? I haven't made my purchase yet so would prefer to know the pros and cons before parting with my cash!!!

I have slightly changed the advice re 2 points:
1. definitely harder pumping up of the LE in 7m and 9m (aware that any extra above 6psi as Manufacturer speci is at your own risk)
2. shorter steering lines as indicated for the 7m apply to the 9m in my tips
