I’ve just purchased new replacement strings for my free ride bar. I’m flying a 2012, 12m rise. My question is, what difference if any do the 3m extentions have on the kite? My original strings were 23m. These are 21m plus the 3 extra meter extentions.
Thanks for any info on this.
I mainly like/use them as a buffer on the ends, a lot of times the loop ends on the inside lines wear quickly, so I use the ends on the extensions and then flip them around after 20 or so sessions, and then when both ends are quite worn, I take the extensions off and go to the regular lines.
I’m not sure that 3m adds a considerable, noticeable amount of power, although you may notice it looping.
Thank you for that information, much appreciated! Do you have the extentions attached at the bar end or kite? I have it rigged to my bar, thinking they will cause less grief snagging on each other etc. These strings seem so thin compared to the HD strings I had originally, and I managed to snap one of those. Always learning…
bar is correct
