Yes, if you got some line rows slacking they engage later and affect pulley ratios in that respect, but it is a messy starting point. However at some point when possible Z slack is gone it does not mean "some camber kicks in", it is more like (silly) negative camber starts to decrease when kite turns to bigger AoA. If kite is adjusted like that it is not at all good for how kite flies and respectively if your mod makes camber kick in earlier (in reality: makes kite to change its AoA more uniformly), it is for sure beneficial.ljackov wrote: ↑Mon Feb 10, 2020 4:20 pmI've already written on the camber. Normally when Genesis and A15 are depowered, there's a slack on the Z bridles, which means the kite "hangs" on A-B-C. At some point of sheeting the bar in the Z slack is gone and some camber kicks in. With my mod the camber kick-in is earlier and more slowly, reaching the same camber as the original mixer when the bar is fully sheeted in.
Also, the heavier bar pressure means the kite is more responsive even on longer lines as the wind drift on the long lines is reduced due to the higher tension.
So again, I think there is some misunderstanding between how kite changes AoA and how it possibly changes camber. This latter property is not at all a necessity, it is the AoA change which makes kite depowerable/powerable, not a possible camber change.
I repeat: every foil kite works just fine even if there is 0 camber change during the AoA change. But if camber decreases during powering up it is very probably harmful, it doesn't make sense.
Heavier bar pressure has some advantages for sure. But if I think for example a Speed 21 which pulls heavy and has already some bar pressure when sheeted in to be used with a pulley bar (or Malabar) I'm afraid it would get too tiring to use. And it is a kite which you could think would benefit most from having higher pulley ratios because of its huge size (chord length).
