Scored my 2nd sesion on the 12m ‘ONE’ today. Gusty/squally ~ 12-22 knots. It was awesome. I weigh 185 & was on a MAKO.  D

I found that the bar compared to regular bars was similar to power steering on a car!  Very smooth!

Sweet. This helps me figure out the dynamics of the bridal.
I put a knot on each side of the pulley line above the existing 2 so that it matched the drawing. I fugure I can always take em back out if I’ve shortened this too much. Its just a knot. Can’t wait to see how this effects the bar pressure and turn radius.

Thanks Jimmy!

[quote author=“Vineyardkite”]Hea Jimmy or OR crew is this mod also intended for the bigger kites (16m) as the kite pictured is the 9m.  Just want to be clear.

Yes - this will work particularly well with the bigger kites (12 and 16)

Pictures to follow.
