One thing that was a bit different on that particular session with the 8 m was that I had the bar adjusted from the customary 48 cm to 56 cm wide (because I had been using my recently purchased Apollo 8 m, which is a great kite BTW , and forgot to set it back to 'normal'). But I have a hard time believing that would make any difference…..
Hmmm, if inflated just reasonably, it seems this very kite got this "known" but rare problem - but it would be a lot worse for average and heavier riders
The longer bar does not mean it will "buckle" more, no.
So if not a defect in this very kite (I have a hard time imagining how this could be possible though, but never say never), then everyone having this very model/year/size would have the same problems, even to a bigger extent as most are heavier, I would say
Anyone having this very kite who can share ?
