Re: [ksurf] Looking for bar and sheeting system used in" How to rip harder"
- Make one!!! Here's what I made yesterday . Gonna try it today if we get
I still use it with my main harness line,when I'm not jumping I like to sit
in and not have to hold onto the bar when sailing. Plus the main harness line
aids in tuning the kite when overpowered.
Oh I did figure the length. the total length from stopper ball to where the
fling lines attach is 28'' when the preset is set at neutral. Neutral being
with front lines about 1'' behind the back lines.
With this system I have 6'' in sheeting in or out from the preset neutral
position. Plus the 9'' with the trim harness.
The kev. cord I use is about 5mm or alittle smaller and the breaking strength
stuff works great. Got it a west marine...... $ .58 a foot .
I use this system know on my other bar but a little different design. Same
I hook into the main while flying with the preset set at neutral. When I
start to get overpower and can't maintain a good edge I hook into the trim
harness along with the main harness which depowers the kite usually enough to
maintain a good edge . Now if the wind keeps building and becomes steady and
I get more over powered I reach up and pull on the preset and sheet in as
needed still staying hooked into both trim and main harness lines.Or in just
gusts stay hooked into trimm and unhook from main and sheet out as needed.
Now if the wind drops I just unhook from my trim harnes and now just in my
main with the kite powered back up .If not powered enough let the preset out
to become powered.
Sounds alittle difficult but not really. It's all on feel . It's nice being
able to tune your kite while sailing ,to get the most out of your time on
