Success!! Got the One flying quite nicely…and it’s an 06 Original. Made all the bridles from scratch as I think the original setup was well dated. Basically set up the front bridles using pulleys to autoregulate. Amazing change in bar pressure nice and light. But still turned slow.
Played with the rear bridle, disconected the front line connection, no longer use the pulley. After many different ideas I eventually used a rear Y bridle setup. A simple direct connect rear line was too twitchy.
End result the One is light on the bar, direct feel turning as there is no rear pulley, now has low end power, turns much faster (finally can kiteloop my 12 One), couldn’t make it stall (yes, no more hindenburgs - even tried to make it do it, couldn’t), even unhooks well (did I mention it doesn’t stall!) and the real bonus is it’s upwind and jumping ability.
I was going to sew new attachment points, but got by using V’s on the existing points. Still not as fast turning as the Rise, but the grunt, upwind ability and jumps are probably as good as any, if not the best due to its flat profile.
If anyone wants measurement info let me know.
You OR guys probably already know this, hope you don’t mine me tinkering with the old girl.
P.S. Test conditions were gusty 15-28 knots (about as bad as it gets, so I’m quite happy)
