Re: [ksurf] Re: string set-up
- 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.
I found the instructions that came with my Naish Kite and it says to
make sure the front lines are one centimeter shorter than the back
lines. You're making the front lines several centimeters longer.
What does this do as far as power and handling? I assumed that the
front lines at 1 cm. shorter was max power. MARK

I've just switched my naish 4 line setup to a longhorn bar and

how much longer the centre line is than the sidelines.
About the width of your hand. That's how I measure mine.
Thanks, but I just wanted to know how you gotta hold of my
