I have been using my Slingshot Stealth kites: 4.4 & 5.8 as well as my B3 for kiting in the winter. The Stealths were not the greatest kites & I have a feeling they could be trimed to fly better (further forward in the window). Any body have any experience in modifying these kites? The B3 is great when it's blowing bigtime (over 25mph).

if you think its flying to far back in the window and its a two liner then you need to take in the front lines, top of the kite, maybe the a and b lines, not much though 5-10mm max.

if its a four liner then let your back lines out and inch or two.

I understand that would be the thing to do with inflatables - however, the Stealth kites are foils.

no you don't understand, becasue if you read what he said you'd see he was refering to 'a and b lines', which only foils have.

you need to take in the front row of bridling a little, to lower the angle of attack, as per his instructions
