Twist in the leading edge
- I have the same problem. It all started after I removed the bladder for repair and put it back in again. I've double checked that there actually isnt any twists in it. One thing I did note was that
the bladder now seemed to be longer than the leading edge of the kite, I dont know if I've accidentally stretched it when looking for the leak or if they just stretch over time. Anyway, I have
concluded that I dont have twists, I think the bladder bundles up near the valve. I havent tried resloving this because it doesnt bother me, but I guess I could pull the bladder out a little on the
tips to make sure it isnt bundling up. The only real problem it presents is deflating the kite, you?

- Try to have the kite lying flat (no twist in the LE) when inflating the LE
bladder - that somehow reduces twists in the bladder
