I put the Cabrinha bladder in and it matches up everywhere but the length.About 16" too long.Rolled them up,stuffed them in.Will this be okay or will I damage the kite?I would appreciate help with this proble

Toyless, I cannot think of any reason why this would not work. Anyone else have a reason why??

I had blown the end strut of my 2002 Fuel beyond repair and replaced it with a larger wipika bladder. Absolutely no problems so far and have been kiting with the oversized strut bladder for over three months with no change in performance. I do not think you will have any problems.

Cheers :thumb:
