I absolutly agree with this ( and I have had sonic 06 and trix 07). First thing you have to do is to shorten the front lines by 1 or 2 knots (the bar comes out of the bag on the first knot). I would even say that on the T9 7 m2, which come out of the bag with a v-line and pulley on the tips, I had to add a 15 -20 cm pigtail (on the back lines) with several knots giving me the opportunity to play with the lenght of the rear line depending on wind strenght.j1finnn1 wrote:the bars we got were set up with the back lines too tight, so the kites were oversheeted out of the bag. I would let the flying lines all the way out, and pull the front lines in one Knot. Bear in mind I haven't seen the kite, so I can't be sure, but it's a place to start. You'll notice better depower too.
For my kites, this gives you a tiny bit of oversheet, which I like for certain occasions, and plenty of depower, especially with the long depower strap.
There is some bar pressure on the kite (turning Pressure), but not significant by any stretch. Unless you're used to a kite like the first GK sonic, then it may feel like alot. Sheeting pressure should be pretty light. Which one are you having?
Of course this won't help with the feeling that the kite's imprecise when sheeted out, but I personally don't find it to be very bad.
After checking the graduation on my pump I see I pumped more at around 5 to 5.5 PSI. So as J-GAR said , with more pressure in the kite it could be better.Bowman wrote:. I pump the kite at 6 psi.
