I use an ozone bar. I attach it to the kite on the middle knot on the end pigtails on my 12m. I tried it on the the third knot up nearest the bar and the soul seemed to get very twitchy. It does feel it need to be tightened up very slightly though. Would a knot in the middle of the two make a difference? For those that are using ozone contact bars on it which of three knots are you using your on please that feels best?

Well I use the ozone foil bar which only has one pigtail knot which is set to be an equal length to the centre lines pigtails.

However the foil bar has about 60cm of trim...

My 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.
Hm, I got my 10m and made the mixer test and made them equal right away. So now I have 10cm Pigtails on the center lines and if this is too much, I can just depower a bit and I am fine.
