horizontal string at the front of the LE.
I dont recall what this horizontal string part is?
I do think the LE battens and return of the velcro bytthole were a big step forward.
That line serves like a lengthwise "horizontal batten" keeping LE shape better when tightened.
Battens on Speed4 were the first Flysurfer battens and they unfortunately took them off them till Sonic came out. A/B/Z bridles were also kept for "future, fancier wings". Speed4 had some great features, I was very happy to see each one of those.
It's been what, 7 years back though? Time to move on
