a1 = 4250mm, c6-1 = 6650mm. These are crazy bridle line lengths and makes me wonder what the designer has had in his mind.

I checked some other kites from Pansh. A15 kite has better bridle spacing which allows shorter bridles, but unfortunately it has been done only partially. Kite named BlazeIIIsv2 has balanced bridle spacing but there is just primary bridle with no cascades at all (brakes has some though).

It was 15-20 years ago that kind of bridle was usual in foil kites.

I don't get this, why do they use 30-50% excessive line adding costs, drag and making bridle less compact and tidy and also more prone going out of tune? When do they learn how to do it?

WOW, :D :thumb: 8)
Thanks for all the time to do this!
I as said am seriously looking into this exact kite, but must say a French friend has exactly the same and has pitch out, lufting, frontal,
I will transmit all your data and maybe he can find a problem?
If I do pull the trigger I also will post my bridle specs.
PLEASE do let us know how she flys!
