For the steering lines we moved the Blue line one knot down on bar end above the floater. For the Center lines we moved the line to the knot closest to the kite.
We were in a catch 22, we could have used another bar, but then the discussion would have been we didn't use the epic bar so its not a true test. So we decided to adjust it as much as we could and use the higher center line connection knot and the depower strap if needed.
If we wanted to release just a bad review, we could have included it in the initial light wind test. We decided to keep flying it and working with it to get the best total review possible.
We are glad some people are happy with the review, but we're well aware that some people were not going to like it and pick something to discredit it. This wasn't done to help us out, we really are doing this to help y'all out.
Dimitri is better than most as he will send you a kite to test, so take advantage of that opportunity if you want, and we really appreciate him sending us a kite to test out. Something he didn't have to do at all.
