Postby slide » Sun Jul 07, 2019 9:07 pm

hi all i'm looking for some advice on depower rope lengths/how much travel on a 9metre speed5 and a15metre, speed5 as I have just brought these 2 kites new kite only , and i'm camping at Cleethorpes , uk next weekend and onshores are predicted ,and i'm hoping to get them flying any help appreciated, I have 2 old flexifoil bars , a 500mm for the 9 metre, and a 540mm for the 15metre, thx pete
edit , not getting 9 metre now , while the shop showed 1 left on its website ,they sold out- they now gonna refund me- why are shops so slow in removing what they don't have to sell

50cm for trow ( bar travel) and 20 cm for trim ( so called depower) is original Flysurfer Cam cleat bar.
I made my own chicken loop and trim adjustments with 55 and 31 cm for cam cleat bar.
Flysurfer race bar 55 cm and 31 cm.

I have the bar for 15 metre all setup-I don't think my arms are long enough for 500 mm travel, so I set it up with about 440 bar travel, and my bar is just under 500mm, but this is my low wind kite so i'll see how I go , but if the bar is too short I do have some older flysurfer bars that are longer if this bar is too short , but i'll suck it and see , I also have a speed3 12metre a speed2 delux 10 metre , an 8metre pyshco4, and a 6metre pulse2 for higher winds
