After noticing by eye just by flying the Kite . I increased A2 A3 attachment points by 20mm . The Kite stopped collapsing and had no extra bar pressure or lost any depower/steering.I then thought I could increase A3 causing slightly heavier bar pressure slightly less depower but the kite sat further back in the window drifting more. I've now got new attachment points with a range up to 6 cm extra to test different combinations.
When people didn't believe me I then consulted the line plan confirming what I have found. On the larger kite sizes these differences aren't felt as much .
What I have been left with is a kite that I can change the feel depending on use ie foil/Twintip/surfboard/light stable/light gusty and so on.
This information has now fixed three kites with good results.

It will definitely make the kite more stable. You get reduced depower and a more stable profile. Where you lengthened A also gives more C shape depowered, which is also more stable. You should have lighter bar pressure though. Did you use jackos mixer on this kite?

Do you have the Genesis 2019 line plan?

No Mixer change Jacko informed me it wouldn't work well with the kite .
But if you say different I'm all ears 😀👍👍

I am aware of Jackos reasoning. I would say you can only try. It depends on your curiosity and tolerance to higher bar pressure.

The Genesis line plan would be nice...

I can only go on what it did for the Genesis as in feeling higher aspect with more dpower.
At the moment a 65cm bar 23m lines .
I have more steering than I require 🤷

I've been busy the wife didn't even notice i wasn't listening to her🤣🤣.
Made from the removed 5th line bridle.
4/5/6cm connection increasements from the standard 2cm .
Aurora 3 today 10m needed 5cm on both A2 A3 just to bring it back to flying correctly.
On a side note standard connections points are not all the same length 🙈👀🤷.

They are called lcls or little connection lines. I have seen some variance in flysurfer ones. I have seen pansh use a longer one like 2x to correct a bridle. They must have some quality control.

Buy yourself some 40 to 60kg fishing line to make lcl extensions. You don't need to sew them just use figure 8 knots.
