Regarding colours, I have many times thought about whether it is possible to change the colour.

As the 5 and 6 and 8 are same colour, aaaargh.

Will make a separate thread :D

Can anyone recommend where to get a bridle line replaced on a Peak 4?
Flysurfer line plans have exact lenght and Liros line-code of bridle.

Also Flysurfer online shop is very easy to select bridle by lineplan code and buy.

I wish the colours were different too. Just to know at a glance what you're grabbing or what someone else is using, and it would be nicer.

I have tied with a larkshead the little strip of fabric that they include (for repairs? or telltale?) on to the drawstring of smaller of the colour set, so I can tell 3m from 4m, and 5m from 6m that way. Works for me.

I wonder if it will be better, or worse?

Yes, but possibly December. Flysurfer had an online dealer meeting recently. No major changes....Changes are new colors, and slight change to the wingtips, and a lighter fabric.... Flying characteristics are not changing, they said.

Hi, as i have quite few Peaks and some of them has starting loosing shapes and they flies differently than new ones /back to back/ is there some easy method to refresh them? I.E. just lengthen Z or something like that. IMO full reset to factory bridle length will not work because also canopy is stretched. New kites have more power stroke and go upwind better basically which mean better L/D. Im sorry Foilholio is not here, as controversial as he was - he has down to earth bridle understanding.

Many thanks to any answer and also this is encouragement for group effort /Horst xls table etc.../

What is your experience with the mixertest on the Peak4s?

I did my 4m and 8m today, both needed extending of C by 6+ cms and B by another 3 cm maybe. I have not been able to fly and test yet, but I am curious to hear about your experiences. I have had a bad experience with the long mixertest on my Soul, so I wonder how the Peaks will respond.

The mixertest is supposed to be the easy way. Have you tried?

Hmmm, this sounds wrong...

Did you make the mixertest when the kites were new?

As I dont believe it can stretch 6-9 cm as you write.

More than 6 cm on the 4 on the bridles only, sounds like a crazy amount - so I have an idea you can not use the mixer test for reference?
