Hi,
I just bought your punsh out Bar with the 5th Line ubgrade Set. Now I aks myself how much daN your 5 Line has. It seemed to me very thin ! I think it has only 200 daN. I think this would be not enough. So I’m a little bit scared that it will tear.
I’ve read a several times that the 5th Line need 500 daN!!!!!!!!!!

theres no pressure on the 5th line when flying so it doesn’t need to be sny stronger than ordinary line.


some brands use the 5th line to adjust the way the kite flys. for OR kites the 5th line shoudl eb slack and used as a relaunch aid and a leash

Der Maik,

I made a lot of tests on 5th line on diablo kite and i can assure you that the upograde kit is strong enough.
Now i’ using actively the 5th line in strong wind (around 25 KN with 14 Diablo) without problems. :wink:
