Is the launch line then supposed to be connected to the same point of the kite where one of the backlines is connected?
If so, what additional effect could this line possibly have compared to pulling the backline itself? Wouldn't it make more sense to connect it to the pump attatchment point?
Does the 2nd Edition also come with this line?
Nope check the trailing edge around the strut on the "blue" side. You'll see a little pigtail. That is where the line goes. Then throught the little plastic ring attached to the bungee and then through the little loop on the blue line. When kite is face down and you pull on the extra line it lifts back of the kite up. I really thought it was a gimmick until I tried it...but with the line I can get the kite in relaunch position before there is even wind enough to fly the kite...anyone who has flown the ride knows that is really light.
