      1 cm doesn't really matter since you will find the kite has a tunable range of 6" or so  for a 7.5 and 10" or so for the big ones 13.5, 15.5. Starting with the front strings a few inches longer than the back at max power setting is a good place to start. You will then trim to suit the conditions at the time on the water.

      front lines at 1 cm. shorter was max power. MARK
