Flysurfer Sonic 3 faster may be?

Postby windrider1 » Mon Jul 12, 2021 11:19 pm

Question for those that might know what does the PMA line on the sonic 3 do. I just got the 15 m and dont like how slow it is to redirect on jumps compared to the sonic 2 while its not a huge difference its noticeable . Can i speed it up by adjusting something on the kite ? Using shorter lines are not an option as its my light wind kite . I use the 60cm infinity bar with the standard 21M lines. Also i noticed my friends 15m had grey pulley lines instead of the usual green does this mean something?

What I did to both my 11 and 15 is to extend a bit the z line a couple inches to let the kite move a bit more freely, it did increase both turning speed and acceleration.
