What are you trying to achieve with the tuning? What characteristics are you looking to get from the kite?

I use all the Fuels (2003) and the 15 has to be my favourite, I use it on the outermost attachment points, front & back, on equal knot settings, with a 20" bar and it rocks!

The kite tips should never be flaring when riding at good speed with the kite steady at 45 degrees. A good setting is when the tips start to flare when you pull the bar right down to the top of the chicken loop (fully sheeted in)

I use the 9 & 11 on a 17" bar, the 15 on a 20" and the 19 on a 23" bar.

just wait for the 2004's.............they are going to be awesome!!

Moving the front lines back makes the kite more powerful and you get more power through the front lines to your harness. Moving the back lines in slows down the turning speed.
