Re: 5th line or 4lines with bridle?

when you are at "fully powered" on the trim strap, there should be only slight tension on the 5th line. unless you are trying to use 5th line tension to increase light wind performance, in which case a few to maybe up to 10 inches of tension are probably enough. (for a 12) i am pretty sure the torc...

Re: Mui ne vietnam

Hey Kitetraveller123, how was your trip? I'm really interested in Vietnam. To visit there one day and get to kite too would be icing on the cake for me. If you have time, write us a trip report. I have looked at most of the Vietnam posts, but some of us really appreciate more detail and what you di...

Re: 5th line or 4lines with bridle?

Try to trim your bar first. Torch is a 5-line kite, so 4 line bar will not work for torch. realized that now, sorry, was confused by the manual where you have instructions for both the universal and shift bar system. Will go for trimming then. (btw, last session I had 10 cm slack on the 5th line an...

5th line or 4lines with bridle?

Hi, I've got some issues to tune my 5th line 2009 naish bar with a new 2013 naish torch kite. The 5th line bar is quite used so I'm thinking that instead of messing around with it I might get the new bridled universal '4 line' bar. Some questions: 1 - Is the 5th line bar safer? (I would guess so as ...

rrd poison 2013

Hi,

Anyone riding the 140 x 42 sized board?
How is it in light / medium wind?
Early planing?

I'm 65kg and want to use it in 5 - 8 ms with a 12 sqm kite.
