When checking line lengths should I remove the kook proof connecters, and just use the end of each 4 lines on a single point?

Cheers

Top photo is correct.  All lines should be the same length on full power chicken loop against the bar. Well that works for me anyway

Hmmm…I also assumed you treated the end of the line as the attachment point on the kite, so I would guess the second photo. I usually ride on the second knot so I actually line them up according to that. Agree with the bar being all the way sheeted in (CL against the bar).

I always use the second knot. (so when it is nuking you can use the first knot instead of depowering.. I never do.)

Top foto is the one.
Set your lines and then look what the kite will do.

I have my steering lines set one knot shorter, feels better (for big boosts grin ) I like my powerpoint with stretched arms (this is better for your elbows i think)
