... interesting! Thanks for finding out.Toby wrote:I got some feedback:
The nose line should be slightly slack when the bar is all the way sheeted in. It will be very slack when the bar is sheeted out.
The correct nose line measurement is 470cm. Dyneema lines shrink over time if they are not loaded, and sometimes even if they are loaded. Depends on the load.
... the manual doesn't show the nose line, its does show the "5th line" and this line goes all the way from the safety ring under the chicken loop, through the bar, continues through the ring and ends with the "a" referred in manual. This 5th line is then attached the the nose line to complete the whole ""5th line"". A stopper ball under the ring stops the line from pulling through so it doubles as a support for the LE (hence why they call the Rebel/Vegas/Torch a loaded 5th line kite).Krazedkiter wrote:Im curious now since I havent used North yet.
In the part of the 2012 trust bar manual I referenced, in section 6.1.3, they refer to a section of line called "a". It is a piece tied to the LE of the kite to the ring on the bar. If that is not the nose line, what is that piece of line called?
Here is a link to the manual?
