Despite the fact that EP's post is only to wind you guys up, I will add the following re Sle's vs 5 line C's.
I have fuels on 5th line set ups and now have a 6m and 9m Nano which are 4 line Sle's, technically called Delta C kites, with bridles and only two pulleys at the kite between the front and back lines in a none critical area.
C kites with an adj. 5th line are more stable in gusty difficult conditions on the beach. With 5th line pulled on it kills the lift and the kite sits in the sky no worries.
Bridled kites in difficult beach conditions are more prone to surging or luffing and need more rider input. ie you can't just sheet them all the way out and park them, they need some rear line tension to fly which means some power to fly vs a 5th line used to kill lift in a C kite.
On the water wave riding I find most Sle's depower to much, so I limit the bar travel to retain the amount of power I like , similar to a C kite.
For most advanced kite riding depower is not what is wanted.
The reason I have got the Nano's is that they have a lot more range and turn tighter and faster than the C kites I have, which I like for wave riding, providing I limit the bar throw to keep power in the kite.
I don't know why so much hype put on depower.
A depowered kite is useless for turning, jumping, transitions etc. C kites are very good for controlled power. Sle's are only just starting to match the performance and response of C kites now.
I like the less pull in the turns of theNano's for wave riding on a surfboard, but if I was still into freestyle on a TT I would still ride only C kites.
My thoughts,,,,,,,,,,so take what you all want from it.
