Foilholio,
I would like to avoid re-designing the bridles or spend enormous time on it. Just my modification spec:
- I know i have to keep all attachement points
- I assume original design is coherent and seem suitable when z are free
- so i start from this and use the existing A,B,C , D anz rows
- i keep A attached to B (fixed) fron fronstalls stab
- I will not implement jackomixer , which in the existing atrachements and conditions, will increase camber when sheet out... i really have more promissing things to test first IMO

Regis,
I’m looking forward to your results!
I’m also looking forward to the single skin kite manufacturers experimenting with ram air leading edges (like Ozone XXLIte 2) and possibly even a closed cell or two.

Carlos C,
That mastair 16 was a helluva kite. I sure enjoyed mine! And that Swiss dude (Manfred?) from paraflysurf did a pretty interesting thing with that spider bar! Not quite my thing but it could turn that big kite like it was on handles.
