Seems to improve 1 line relaunch.

I am quite liking it on the Psycho 4. It has taken a bit to get used to. The upwind increase, float and reduced stall are all quite noticeable. The 1 line relaunch is actually dramatically effective now.

I haven't seen any real downside to this at all. It changes the kite for sure, but if you are looking for better L/D, relaunch and less stall, then give it a try.
