The last couple of sessions my 4m has been flying with a small kink in one of the wing tips. At first I assumed something was caught on one of the bridle lines, but I can't see anything wrong. Now I'm wondering if it might have something to do with the B safe line. I've flown dozens of sessions with this kite without noticing anything in the past. I'm thinking I might try removing the B safe line to see if that makes a difference. Does it have absolutely no effect on the flying of the kite other than the possibility of collapsing the kite when wanted?
Check all bridle lines if they are symmetric. I had a tiny loopknot of the b safe line around a bridle of my peak which made it pull to one side . The situation was overpowered on a mountain and so i was not sure if the overpower was the problem because i did not see the knot when i checked at first. Took me an hour to find it.
