Out Of Shape?

Postby hizakite » Sun Apr 11, 2004 12:53 am

G'Day Everyone, now I know its not cool to have gear that is more than a season old but my Naish Aero1-14m is still in good condition and has never let me down. But recently it has developed a tendency to fall to the left rather than stay parked at zenith. This is becoming quite annoying! The lines are the same length so I'm guessing that it has stretch to the point were it is no longer symetrical. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I' ve seen guys just shorten the one line a little bit to counter-adjust. Worked out fine.

Check the leading adge bladder and make sure it is not twisted.

This can cause the problem.

It might sound stupid, but check if your bladders are dry on the inside. A little bit of water can effect the weight symmetry of the kite.
