Advice on Varial X 2012 set up

Hi Fellows! I've just bought a used Varial X 2012 6m on a great bargain! Flown it yesterday and the day before. It is awesome! Can't believe the power for such a small kite. Well, when I was setting the lines up, I've noticed some extra pigtails for the bridles. However, no indicative sign for what ...

Lighter, thinner, automatic unspin of center lines and I rather go with the above the bar clam cleat (lots of depower). The push-push solution is good, but don't offer half of ...
