Hi,

I snapped a line yesterday so I’m in the process of looking for a new set. Just wondering what the pros and cons are for different length lines? Am I right in thinking longer lines will be better in lighter winds but will make the kite turn slower? If so how much difference does it make? Is there a trade-off between the extra weight of the line and the added performance?

Cheers

David

for racing there are few disadvantages to using longer lines. I use 28 pretty much always.

I have a bar with 24, and I add an extension of 4 meter...
