Can any help me with the ideal line length for my TORO's. I am currently running front and back lines all the same length ( 30 mtr inc. leaders on a airush bar )
but I notice that the kite tends to over sheet slightly when fully powered up, ie wing tipe splayed out to a point where the kite seems to be over sheeted. Any advise would help.

Phil.

I think equal lines is correct. I've only flown the 16m. Notice the rear knotted line on the kite is longer than the front. This allows the kite to be flown with standard equal line lengths.

Now having said that, some of my Rhinos are not all perfectly trimmed on equal line lengths. On my 16m I need to pull the strap in just a little.

I'd just move the knots on your leaders to tune the kite like you know it should fly.

Things stretch, kites aren't perfect, tune your kite and lines like you know it should be.

From my impression, it also depends on how long your depower is. On a long one, I would tend to make the back lines a little shorter, since it would ensure that the back lines aren't too long.
