The bars of X2 kites I currently have are pretty different in terms of the chicken loop line length (the line which has the yellow end piece on it and goes to the chicken loop).

Image

The first I got has a long piece from the adjuster, so that you could untie the knot and make the depower length longer (length from chicken loop to the adjuster).

The two I got yesterday do NOT have a long piece at the end. The yellow end piece is directly at the adjuster and the depower length seems pretty short.

Could this be a problem or is the default depower lenght long enough? I'm used to AirBlasts depower lengths, so this could be why I think it could be too short.

What are your experiences?

Thanks,
Robin

the yellow line should be 11 to 12 inches from the knot to the end of the bar.

Robin,
from my experience with the X2, the depower length is long enough. It is very effective in its depower.
And for the Airblast: without the bridle, I found the depower to be too long. Either the back lines went slack, or the kite oversheeted too much.
Cheers
Nico
