Today i was kiting with a friend who ALWAYS rides my 14m Screamer. And he liked the kite alot.
But even after i told him to use the right knot for the powerlines today i discovered that he actually still hadnt changed it.
The wind today startet very low so i tried the 14m and for some reason i didnt have any real power and the kite was freakin slow. Then i noticed the knots of the powerlines that it was wrong, it was attached to the middle knot above the mickeymouse ears. And that simply means the steering lines are short.
So i landed the kite and reattached the powerlines on the knot closest to the mickey mouse ears.
When i started again, the kite moved atleast 3 times faster, and generated much more power and the kite got his pop back.
The wind picked up slowly and my friend rode the 14m again and he was like oO wtf,.. this is alot better then before and i already liked it.
So my suggestion to everyone that somehow isnt liking the kites look at the setup of the powerlines it makes a huge difference. Maybe you like it bettern then.
