Hello Toby
Some months ago you tried 32m lines, can you enlighten us with your experience with longer lines?

Depends on the kite...great for faster turning kites to slow then down.

Dyno 2011 18 is a bit slow with it, but I am testing different 18s now (protos).

So try it with a 14 or smaller and see the difference.

How does the linelenght affect your jumping height?

Don't know since I can't test at the same moment ;-)

In theory the kite turns slower so less high.
But more hang since the kite is higher.

For the 18m dyno have you historically used 27m line length?

Just checked my dyno line length, 27m.

Best get some 25s, thought I wasn't getting dialed in. My be as a result of the longer/slower lines?

Would you cut down and re-sleeve or replace the 5 line setup. Any idea what length the 3 lines from the centre should measure if the outside lines are 25m?

Thanks
Adam

No idea Adam...I am no a technical guy with these matters.

How about getting another bar with 25m lines, and keeping the 27 for your smaller kites?
