Guest do you know how a pully bar works.... The bar seems to be the best for me for adjustment as I go, I may only adjust it once during a session.

Pully Bar with a 4 line kite

Just to trow this out foil crowd?? Just wondering if any one has tied it. On my quadrafoil the control lines are close to center and the brakes are on the outside of my bar. Now my LEI turns faster with a pully, would my 4 line foils turn faster??
