The only way it should change the characteristics is if the shorter center lines pinch the leading edge in. That is a big if. As long as the lines are all the right length it will be fine. You would have to go super short for the lines to pull the outside of the kite in. As long as the kite maintains its designed shape you are good.

I must say, I dont believe it matters at all...

And even IF you could feel a small difference, it might as well be to the slightly better instead.

So just choose the linelength you want :thumb:
