I am ordering a few custom made line extensions.
They will have universal loop/knot combinations on both ends, therefore they will fit with any setup.
Material is the same as North'.
I order at kiteleinen.com, Peter is obviously a very friendly and competent guy.
Prices are quite fair. For 3 line extension sets (a 4 lines) incl. shipping EU I pay 150-180 Euros, depending on the length of the lines.
So here is my question:
My Naish Drafts come with a 3 meter extension set already. I ride a 24m North Quad bar with it.
I thought of the following setups:
24m lines on the bar
3m --> 27 extensions that come with the Draft kites
To be ordered:
6m --> 30m
9m -> 33m
12m --> 36m
What do you think? Does that give me enough flexibility to find the right length of lines I prefer or are 3m steps too big?
I guess I am going to end up flying the Draft 17m2 with 27m lines, the Draft 14m2 with 30m lines and the Draft 12m with 33m lines (or all of them with even 3m+)
I use the inner setting of the North bar and do not intend to customise it - making it shorter etc.
I know that longer lines generate more power - so the two effects I am looking for like slower steering / less power might not work out well sometimes (especially in strong wind)
With the 4 line quad bar of North (you use the same, right?) is there any issues with the red safety line when the depower setting is set to full depower? Just got 2 North Quad bars today and after upgrading it with the miniloop/microhook and measuring line lengthes I discovered that the red line of course is really loose when set to full depower (Could maybe have lots of winddrag next to the powerline (Mini 5th that goes into the low Y)?
@Flybykite: I am not very good with customising - I prefer to let pros do that
