Most Systems (Naish and North for sure) have a stopper at the end of the Y-Line.
That way the length of the 5th line between the Kite and the Y-Connections is fixed, no matter what you do below the Y.
I like the idea of having the 5th line move with the front lines so the
3 lines maintain the 'same' tension regardless of the trim strap setting.
I want to set up my own 5th line. I will probably come close to the
exact length, but I'm sure I will have to do some fine-tuning once I'm on the
water. How do I accomplish this with a fixed stopper ball? I could use a
clamcleat, but then I have to move it close to the handle soi I can reach
it, in which case, it will no longer be fixed to the 'Y". Any suggestions?
There is also another stopper ball alog the 5th line sloser to the kite. This
one prevents the bar from sliding up too far and keep sthe kite
from hovering in the air. How do you make a stopper ball that's
