Previously I've owned the B7, B8, B10 now the B11. The same type of pulley has been used throughout I've never had a problem with the pulleys or bridle. The boost is smoother when you pull in the bar maybe the extra pulley has made the difference. Don't know about the flagging out effect. The LE on the B11 is as rigid as the other versions I always pump my kites up to 10 psi as per the manual. The stability and windrange is better than the B10 with IMO a better low end. The B7 had the 3 point bridle connection the B8 onwards a 4 point which IMO greatly improved the stability & windrange. The B10 and B11 don't flap in tight turns unlike some previous versions.jeromeL wrote: ↑Fri Oct 13, 2017 6:36 pmSo it has an extra pulley, 6 totals? I wonder if this is just to improve the 1 line flagging or why they needed it.
I thought the previous version the LE was already pretty thin, kite still felt rigid and stable? Maybe on high end for bigger guy would be an issue? Maybe they used new dacron?
No clue how this relates to stability performance, perhaps that's no big deal once kite is up in the air with tension in bridle and line.
I feel like my older B7 wasn't so rigid but maybe it just got beat up too much and stitching got loose.
Owned only B7 and B8.
