I’m using a 60cm bar, it will work with the 50cm, but the turning speed is better on a bigger bar.
I really like the bridal setting on #3 too.
Thats both front and rear attachments towards the trailing edge.
The settings can viewed here…
I’ve been putting the rear lines on the inner most knot of the pigtail
(I attach the pig tail to my lines, not the kite)
You can always take that out on the bar with some sheeting if the winds build too.
I try to point downwind and match speed with the kite right off the bat.
Once you enter that apparent wind zone, you are golden and the magic begins…it took me a few sessions to find that feeling, but now that I’m there, its opened my eyes to some pretty amazing things.
I totally agree with on the 12m too, its has very good low end, turns very fast, jumps so smooth and high…I love that thing too!
Here in Seattle, we get a lot of days of just 14 knots, so a big kite is needed to make the most of it. Lately I’ve been going out in this and having it build up. The 16m is quite a thrill when this happens.
Good luck dude!
