i made the mod for my 12m ONE and have to say…. it didnt make that much of a difference :? i can say that yes, its a bit faster… but the bar pressures now higher as well.

the one thing it had definately rectified was the feeling of ‘lag’ when you pulled the bar, where it took a sec or so for the kite to respond.. now its more direct steering for sure..

discuss..  smile

I found the kite as stable as my Broncos in light air. A huge improvement.

So would you say it is worth doing the bridle mod for the 12? I am going to do it for the 16 for sure…

Most definitely…Before mod #2 I found the kite would drift down out of the wind in lulls, now it is a lot more responsive & obedient.

i could hardly feel the difference on the 12… has anyone else done it and had a noticable difference? maybe i should play with the knots and see if that makes a difference

I just rigged up the 2006 16m ONE bridle mod (thank you Powerline Sports)
and I can honestly say I don’t recognize my kite any more.  Had one session in 10 knots and I am simply blown away by the difference.

If you own the 16, get the mod - period.
  It’s like having new kite. 

Your kite will now stay parked in the wind window at 9-10 knots.  It will turn like your 12m. It will down loop in half the radius.  You will be guy out there with the “fast” big kite now. 

Nice work to the guys at OR….maybe too nice.  The only downside to the 16’s mod- I don’t feel the need to purchase 2007 gear anymore. :wink:
