After about 20 days on my X2 I notice that my front flying lines have stretched about 4 cm more than my back lines. This is normal and expected. But I can't figure how to change my leader lines to compensate for this ..without putting on new longer rear line leaders. Am I missing something?

And another question. After I do a loop or spin, it takes me a while before I can do one in the opposite direction to untwist my lines. Is this eventually going to cause wear on my flying lines where they twist together? (I can't always use my spinning bar because sometimes I need to wear a leash.)

If you open up some of the knots in the leaders of the back lines (the ones you don't use because they are too far down, anyway, this will make the back lines longer again.

As to the twisting: if you use the Naish leash, you can still untwist your bar. The leash will simply wrap around the chickenloop line. And yes, you are bound to get wear and tear on your lines.

Cheers

Thanks Nico
Good idea. Undoing each knot gains about 2 cm on a rear leader line.
It takes a while to get those knots undone though.

Add a longer pigtails to the back attachment points. If you like more tuning make some knots to them.
