I just purchased a new Ozone 55cm, 17m lines, Foil Race bar specific for this 12m Soul. After 12 years of LEI kite I just assumed we always check all lines for equal length.direnc wrote: ↑Thu May 30, 2019 8:28 pmMy 12 Soul came with the mixer at B -1 cm, which makes rear lines 4cm longer. There was a statement from Flysurfer saying that the brake lines can be up to 4cm longer when the kite is new. I guess it's made to compensate for the initially expected shrinkage in B. I fly mine with equal lines and a 55cm bar, tho.
This would lead to a kite which has a lot of back stall after some sessions. Now kite has a some slack in the steering at first but after couple of sessions it will be more as it is meant to be.
No reason to change that. If you have to make some adjustments for front line/back line lengths do it in the kite, not in the flying lines.PurdyKiter wrote: After 12 years of LEI kite I just assumed we always check all lines for equal length.
No, that doesn't mean that. 4cm longer rear lines would affect also 1:2 to C line row and directly to brakes. Front line row part of the mixer and the bridle give in during the first sessions because they bear most of the load. Also front lines of the flying lines can stretch (or return to original lengths) more than back lines do.direnc wrote: My 12 Soul came with the mixer at B -1 cm, which makes rear lines 4cm longer.
I thought about it since I use the bar that does not give you an option to adjust under the floaties...
