Core have a video showing how to retune your lines,

WITHOUT pig tails.

All lines will shrink over time so need adjusting, this is no supprise.

Dennis thinks that lines should somehow be delivered set up to account for shrinking and is now Ignoring what Core themselves suggest making the entire process about him and how he knows best.

Set the lines how Core state in the video and it’s all good.
Dude,

why do you get so personal every time you see any of my posts?
Did I cut you on a highway or slept with your wife? I don't even know you :-)

If you can't help yourself and just have to scratch the troll itch, at least get your facts right..
I never suggested that lines should come un-tuned, quite the opposite (pullstrings did)..
But you just cannot be bothered to read or understand stuff before you puke the irrelevant responses.. you cannot even be bothered to spell my name correctly.
In the other thread, you could not be bothered to spend 5 min with a woo app and understand basic reporting/stats, but spent a long post accusing me of lying...
You don't jump but chime into big air discussions with personalized remarks on megaloops...
You claim, it's a good idea to hold two hands on a bar, while doing assisted launch... - I hope evolution will take care of you.. Although very unlikely, as you seem to be posting silly stuff more than you kite.

But going back to this discussion, it's simple really:
- if pigtails are the same length (which seems to be the case for the new ones), then it does not matter if you tune your bar with or w/o them
- if they are different by more than a few centimeters (shrinking or deviations in manufacturing process), you may want to adjust for that
- final test is always to fly your kite on the beach and see if flies correctly (good low end and no back stalling)

All this could be done in far less time than reading this thread...

For someone that hates core as much as you do given your posting history you manage to crop up on every post so I wonder who is really doing the trolling?

I asked who suggested they came un tuned first go and check

I offered no advice on megalooping, go check

I understand your woo fascination completely, your own assertsion of sessions on particular kites is what amuses me

Not sure where I specifically said I reccomend two hands on the bar but if I did?

That’s a reason to with death or elimination on someone?

Thanks for the post count concern though it’s nice to know you care. X

James,
please refrain from contaminating threads with unrelated personal remarks and questions.
use PM function if you have specific questions to me or opinions of me or start a separate thread.
This is basic etiquette...

PS: it's hard to maintain any meaningful discussion with someone who cannot read and does not remember his own statements...
PM me if you really want to to point to exact places where I claimed "this" and you claimed "that".. no one else here cares...

I did yes....was trying to come up with explanation....was under the impression from photos of Core pigtails I saw on internet that the front were short and back were long
But I did change my tune after more research since I do not have newer Core bars with maybe some newer pigtail design
Come to find out they are equal when all laid out to full length
OP said 3-4 cm difference !!

Yes the final ultimate test is flying kite all full power on trim and bar all the way in full power for zero backstall in the low wind range of the kite

On this thread you have given all great comments and photos :thumb:
Thanks
