Slingshot fuel 2013 - Kite lines length

Postby guerreiro76 » Sun Oct 14, 2012 10:10 pm

Hi,

I recently bought a Slingshot Fuel 2013 9m. The kite is great. However, I´m used to 23m line length, and this one came with a bar set of 17" with 20m lines.

I found it different to jump.

I would like to know your opinions on this. Wouldn´t it be better with 23 ml length lines? The bar size I think it´s ok.

Thanks

I like my 2011 on 23m lines more and that's what I use, but I am more into unhooked. For jumping I prefer shorter lines, as I find it easier to hold me edge while sending the kite.

For jumpig I'm totally agree with you..but why do you prefer "longer" lines for unooked???more slack???more range???

But how come for jumping, you prefer the longer lines? Probably it´s just me, because i´m really used having 23m lines, and the 20 m set, really doesn´t feel right...
