      Mel - or anyone

      I now have an adaptor kit - found a Maui Magic one. I had some problems
      keeping the kite in the air while adjusting it this morning so just a quick
      question - all 4 lines are 30m each, the normal bar leaders are 3m each
      side (for the back lines)but the leader of the adaptor kit is a lot shorter.
      It makes the 2 front lines about 1m shorter each side (at full adjustment)
      than the back lines.
      Should I get a new leader for the adaptor kit that would make it exactly the
      same length as the normal bar leaders?
      Hope I've explained myself ok.
      Tks for yr help
      JD
