Re: Switch Helium 18m vs nitro 4 16m

Thanks for the response... My only issue with the helium is the bar pressure. Way to light for me. Any tweaks that will give me a bit more bar pressure feel for me? I know its a light wind kite but i would like just a bit more bar feel, if you know what i mean...
