Pump your kite to 7 PSI
Clip shut real good all your struts
After a couple of hours "only unclip the center strut" (after verifying by squezing that it is still rigid)
If your hear pssssssssssst.....air shooting out of center strut then LE has some kind of leak
It could be the intake / deflate valve that it bad...could be sand in it and air leaks out
Could be a pinhole in bladder
In the case of temperature affecting rigidity ....if that was the actual reason...
.....LE being soft would also mean that center strut is going soft at the same rate....
...and testing by unclipping the center strut would show no air shooting out
Center strut and LE would both have equal PSI....at 5 PSI for example from original 7 PSI pumped
