2015 9 mtr rpm buckling?

Postby pj sofine » Sat Jul 23, 2016 3:12 am

Got a new to me 9 mtr rpm,2015 with the bungee bridals.The kite seems to turn slower than my 2014 10 mtr rpm with the slider bridals.This kite was pumped rock hard.When looped the leading edge was bending severely .I kept my eye on kite and would downloop while edging hard and the kite would deform and stop for a second.Looks like it is happening right where the bridle attaches to leading edge,Doing a simple kiteloop transition the kite would buckle. Wind was 28 -35 mph,I was way powered but not overpowered. I weigh 215 lbs so I've always had these issues,but not on my 2011 or 14 's.Thanks
