I will wait for some replies as I get ass raped when I say what I think about the 2013 cat on my local forum. I am trying the 2014 this Sunday, but that's not gonna help ya much. reports are there is a large improvement in all the aspects i found disconcerting, but i will see on sunday as i said.
will say this, I to was disappointed with the jumping of this kite, unless really lit. Also the shortening of the back lines does make a huge difference as it does with the zephyr.
Also you can't apply a full C technique for jumping this kite as it has pretend C wing tips...oops there I go again, here comes the ass raping....
Build speed and apparent wind first and don't yank it from low down like a C, somewhere in between a C and a high aspect kite like an edge. It does unhook okay though.
Do you make another knot or use the one closest toi the bar?
If another knot how far from the last knot?
