I think I need to tune my bar. I got new lines and during my last session I noticed a decrease in power during the session, while the wind seemed to pick up.
Should I adjust the back lines with or without the “line extenders” or whatever you call them? I’ll try to explain: the flying lines end in a sleeved loop (at the kite). The back line attachments on the kite also end in a sleeved loop. There are the red and blue short little pieces of (thicker) line that go on the end of the flying lines to attach the flying lines to the kite. I can’t remember if they came with the bar or kite.
Anyway, they’re a few inches long, and would make all the difference in line length.
As all 4 flying lines end in loops and the drawing in the manual shows a screwdriver pinning the lines in the ground for back line length adjustment, I’m assuming without the “extenders”, but I would like to be sure.
Sidebar question: other brands say that you can also adjust line length by pulling on the lines to even them out: not all brands have back line length adjustment points at the bar. Any thoughts?
