Fantastic review I'm just about to purchase a 9m used 10x £150 supposedly with bar and lines 🥰foilholio wrote: ↑Wed Feb 19, 2020 1:52 pmTested it on water, excellent. The response and turning is much improved. Bar pressure didn't seem too high at all but after 30 minutes I was noticing it. I have very light pressure on my other kites. This mod seems to improve my no C mod. The shape or creases on the wing seems improved now. With the new mod the kite is much harder to stall, which makes it easier to fly and extract the most out of it. I am using a 65cm bar but even down to 50cm would be fine now. The shorter bar throw really helps with kite control.
Much help if you could provide some illustration.15toeside wrote: ↑Sun May 10, 2020 2:28 pmSo update on the A15 mods. On the No C mod I have removed the AB tip line. The effect was to improve the tip stability and opening, but to also massively improve turning response and speed, and in addition it improves depower, upwind, lowend and lift. I have also removed to tip Z bridle, as I feel it is better without it.
With the Jackomixer I have now done it an alternate way which removes the B main line and the folded Z main line. It also folds the A main in half and moves the Z pulley line down to just above the B pulley and gives you a knot on the end of the Z pulley line to adjust Z length.
The function is much the same as the other way of the jackomixer mod. Except this has more range, increases depower range, has adjustment, is less parts and stronger.
The main disadvantage is it moves the trim ~20cm to more powered. So you need to find some way to either extend your rear lines ~20cm or shorten your front lines 20cm or a combination between both. I managed to do both at the bar, which actually worked out well. If you replace the rear main with the B main folded in half that will get you 10cm on the rears. I am sure people will be able to work a solution at the bar or something else simple.
Of note though reducing drag at the kite is far more important than at the rider
I highly recommend these mods now. Particularly if you have tried the Jackomixer, the alternate Jackomixer and No C offer quite a bit more.
