Hi Dan!!!thank you very much for the tip, I did it by myself and yesterday I was able to use this kite!!! :thumb:

But I don't know if I did something wrong because I felt the kite strange, it is very stable, maybe too much!!! :lol:
The steering force was really high compared to the 2015 wich I am used to ride, this is a big help when you do tricks...except for kiteloop... :roll:

Maybe the 5th line lenght wasn't correct (I use a custom bar without Y) but this bar works great with the other Vegas and I plaied with different lenght changing the knots on the line starting from all the line equal (I also change rear pigtail on soft settings)...we'll see if it's a matter of steering or is just a question of the model...
