I have seen Hadlow's kite during the pkra in austria and looks indeed really interesting. The 5+6th lines are not going all the way down to the bar but they are attached to the front lines (after about thy run about 5 meters down). It is a vary interesting set up and I have no idea what is the use of this set up (I believe must offer better depower but on the other hand I might be wrong)

In Coche the 5th/6th lines on Hadlow's kite appeared to come off the front lines ~ 10 M from the kite There was no central 5th line. It seemed to help the kite keep shape. He did roll it once and it was an issue, got tangled, so basically a mini-bridle with no pulleys.
