Hi,

a question for the guys who can do loaded handlepasses:
(I can't, but want to learn it)

Is the handlepass easier with e.g. 15m Flyinglines, compared to 23m?
Less steady pull?

Thanks!
Herbert

99% of pros use between 22-24m lines for freestyle/wakestyle, so I'd go with that ;)

Longer lines are better for passes. They all so help with controlling the kite while doing the trick as the kite won't be as responsive to bar movements. I say between 23-26m is probably ideal but it is all so something you have to figure out for your self.

True, but getting a good pop would be trickier. So medium lines would be ideal, the 22-24m as mentioned before. :)
