I used to have a Rhino 20m that would relaunch in barely any wind with the 5th line, but the waroo doesn't want to turn on it's side in that little of wind. Also, yes, I didn't want to have to get a 4 line bar, but from judging what you guys are saying, I'd probably be better off getting one. Thanks for the insight.
Hmmm, actually you got a good point there
In very light wind, a 5th line can be good to get a kite this size rolled on its back...
And then just hope you can get it off the water - but if you could with your 20m2 Rhino, you can with your waroo too
I never fly a kite bigger than 11m2 even in the most light wind nowadays, meaning below 10knots - but I am 74kg.
Thats why I didnt think about it - as a "large" waroo to me is a 13m2
So you could gain by modifiyng it to a 5 lined kite
Just one thing - could you relaunch the 20m2 Rhino when you were in deep water ?
Because, if we talk low water, you can easily walk towards the waroo and get it on its back, with the standard 4 lines - no 5th needed for this
But when swimming in deep water, with a 20m2 - it is not really possible with 4 lines, true.
