So it would appear huh? But Actually, I don't like to write at all. I don't mind reading the forums, but typing sucks. Sometimes, I just do the talking and my machine does the typing for me. I just copy and paste it here. That's why my posts sometimes end up so long. That's why sometimes they are typed better and other times they are full of typo's.
Don't understand the graph? Yes, you are right, the depower range is decreased when you move the back lines forward. Isn't that the way your read the graph? Just so we know, I didn't design this graph, SlingShot did, I just basically duplicated it on the PC to make it easier to share with you.
SlingShot changed their sizing from the even numbers they were using to odd numbers for 2003. They will now come in 3,5,7,9..etc. They did this because the odd numbers more closely match the actual exact area of the kite. SlingShot uses actual flat surface area for sizing, not projected. But where 2002 Fuel 14's are actually a bit more than 14m, the 2003 15 will actually be 15m in size. It may be 15 point something...like 15.1 up to 15.9, but it will be 15; and not quite 16.
All sizes have 5 struts, none have 7.
