Has anyone tried a 5th line bar in a Cloud using the leash attachment of the leading edge? just for security reasons
No but I did check the possibility of keeping the original C1 cloud bridle dimensions and just allowing the sliders to slide further toward the centre of the kite.
I had planned to make an IDS type bridle mod using 3.8mm Formuline, but Greg's mod seems to be working for most who try it, so I have decided just to use his mod.
Because it has no struts, it has much less pull when flagged out like that than my 13m Crossbow IDS kite.
These photos show that the 17m C1 would flag out very well if just the inner and lower V's were modified, but modifying all 3 V's would allow it to flag out as much as possible.
The upper photo shows it flagged out if the inner and lower V's were modified. Modifying the outer V would allow the kite to flag to its maximum.
The lower photo is just to show that the two V's that I piggybacked onto the bridle were the same size as the originals.
