Can anyone suggest an explanation for why it seemed to my that the 5th E line seems tight on my 12m Vegas 06 (flown once) but not on my 9m or 16m Vegas 06 (each flown several times). (Note I mention number of times flown to imply experience with kites not some change in kites due to number o times fown).
Note all are set up the same way: front pigtail on farthest knot from kite and rear pigtail setting on back/fast setting. on 5thE noseline (supplied with kites) all kites using knot farthest (from kite). At the bar, rear lines are attached to 2nd knot (2nd farthest from bar).
I don't know how to proceed or think about this. Seems that either 5th is too loose on 9m and 16m or too tight on 12m (or both ?). Someone told me that when depowered, I should just begin to see some tension of 5th E line ?
I don't know why but I have the Vegas 6 12m and my 5th line was too short also. I was flying it on my 05 bar though. I just added a little pigtail to the 5th at the kite and no probs since. Flies great now. Some people have told me the 5th stretches after a few sessions but I haven't checked it since I added the pigtails because it looks "good" while I'm flying it.
If your 5th line seems to tight, just add a pigtail to the nose line. Every north kite comes with 2 extra pigtails. Look for the velcro pocket on the back of the wingtips. One on each side. There is a extra pigtail in each. These come in handy as Nose line extentions if your nose line is too tight.
