Maybe not, but I wonder what the Torch would do without its 5th line shift bridle. If your really all that worried about it maybe a 5th line or Best's new Kick system would be a good investment. If you think about it, such an action is impossible with a 5th line setup. I'd rather stick to 4 lines though.

Anyway, its never happen to me... and like I said before I have been overpowered in some absolute crap winds.

fokiten are you keeping the kite?

Did you have longer rear lines on your kite? If not, did it flare on the trailing edge?

What's the version of your yarga, is it the one with the separated tips from the LE?


P.S: Dax, does the kick bar also work with 4 lines only?

oops,

forgot about this post,

kyngpin,,

No I had just a bit of depower when I rode,,it was light and I was lazy..

It didn't flair that I noticed,,, I can't say I was checking for flair either though.

Next time I'll loop in an extra pig on the kook-poof rears, and rig it for slack depower...

Ya, know? I'm not real sure,,but it seems it was separate wing tip struts.

I'll give her another ride and let you know,,going to be a few days thuogh,,

PS. known issue eh? ,,Hm,,,then I can confirm that it does ineed seem to be able to fold, and die... when flown with less than normal rear line slack that is...

nice kite over-all I must say!
Thanks again sq

UPDATE>>>5-19-05

This Yarga has separate wing tip struts; upon extended testing by my bud who shredded his TEAM kite, and needed a loaner....

The latest News from him is THIS KITE FUCKING ROCKS,,

I'm not bs-ing,,, I kited with him yesterday (I was testing the 12 Rapture and cc bar in 25+) and he said, quote, the more I fly it (05 yarga 11) the better it gets...

Hm,, I liked it too, but he's the man.

Best? nice job,,nice kite
