I still don't get it -- uneven loading between front and rear lines?KristianE86 wrote:Because of uneven loading. PF failed to mention that he assumes equal diameter lines. IMO different diameter lines are a better fix.
Ah, gotcha. I've not noticed this the few occasions I've played with extensions on tubes; 6m is the longest I've used though... and for a few sessions only. My Speeds have extensions full-time, and when I tune the lines I allow an inch or two anyway, for my knots to tighten up.Starsky wrote:Your front lines are loaded more than the steering lines so they travel a straighter line where the steering lines are more bowed. The longer the lines the bigger the difference between the two and the need to correct with the trim strap.
Is this more of an issue for foil kites?
