Hey marley, I'm sure the 60m lines weren't too far off. Here's my new "lines rule":

If its less than 12kts, go with 40m lines
If its more than 12kts, stick with 30m lines (or less)

Basically, I'm setting up two sets of 10m leaders (will do more testing with 50m lines in the summer months). Also going to test 16 and 20m bridled foils from next year for the light wind option. Will post details in the spring.

I've tried 50 meter lines with an 1120 ARC in 9-11 knots and a 186 olry. stayed upwind but barely. 190 lbs. worked well but ALOT of lines to deal with and a huge range of terror.

flysufferer.

the wac system was not designed for any kite other than the psycho and 16 warrior. with a bit of tweeking it is possible to do it on the warior, though i'd take a good hard look at the psycho set up first.

i'd suspect that most people aren't getting the best out of there warriors, try upgrading the depower strap to the one from the next size up. you can get about another 3 inches + and - depower out of each kite. though you need to set this up right. with extended power up, you can set the trimming to brake the kite down, in an arc style. the physios do this too as standard.

but watch out for overpowering coming down off landings.

best of luck guys.
