1392Re: [ksurfschool] Changing Free Air 2 line to 4 line
- Apr 13, 2001Mel - 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
