Reason I didn't answer you on this one is because I haven't tried a 2003 fuel and probably won't because I'm really happy with my 2002 fuels, great kites.
I just know what Johnny, other on the forums and my mates around here say, never seen one jellyfish btw, sounds like they are slightly higher Ar, more depower
and turn faster than the old one. Maybe a little bit less low end and the top end quotes are lower too, although a 16m 2002 fuel in 20 knots is pretty extreme imo, maybe they decided to use wind ranges for kiters and not superhumans this year.
My new depower is 10 cm (43 cm) longer than the standard 33 cm. Trim is also 10 cm longer.
Basic trim for 2002/2003 fuels follows but apparently you can change the 2003 a lot too.
Lines should be equal with trim at around half or just above (longer fronts) when hooked into both chicken and fixed loops.
Or equal with trim pulled all the way down(shortest fronts) and chicken loop at the bar, same thing.
This works when attaching to same length pigtails on kite.
Fuels like flying on the back lines
The basic line trim is ok for the middle range of the kite.
If you're overpowered, use a smaller kite or attach the centre lines one or two knots lower on the middle leader line before launching, this will give you more depower.
Also you can trim the kite with the clam cleat before launching in the middle or full down in strong wind. When the kite is flying trim it so the back lines get loose when you push the bar away and all lines are taught when you pull the bar in to power the kite up.
