Thanks for the reply. I have the free ride. They need to be shorten by probably three meter. The current length totally does injustice to that kite. Im here in Cabarete and I brought the new gear down here fresh out of the bag. The lines that were provided with the free ride are far to long. You loose all the directness with the kite and its very sluggish. Luckily I brought my old bar and lines with me from my 2008 rise. With those lines you allowed for a three meter extension to be removed. After I read you first response and understood i cant make an adjustment, i tried my old shorter bar and lines, added the pigtail to the outside lines, and now the kite flies like it should. Its a very fast kite and now Im happy. Its a bad idea when making lines to not be able to make the adjustment available.
