… and when i had the kite out the other day i took it back down to tune under the bar settings, and thought about even tying extra knots, but i figured since its a new kite that maybe i was missing something that i wasn't familiar with since it being a new brand and all for me.
Your comment remind me of a similar problem I had 3 years ago when trying my Naish Park 2012 for the first time.
In short, I needed to tie extra knots on the blue and red pre-lines in order to be able to steer the kite properly and get max power when sheeted in.
At this time I was very surprised, as a Naish owner for many years, to have to tune the bar "out of the box"… but it was necessary. Never had to do it again since
