Hi everyone,
The nse 15 has quite a number of knots on the upper outhaul of the bridle and I wondered what your experience with these different settings is. Is there an optimum or should adjustments be made relative to wind conditions?

Cheers

I usually fly mine with the uphaul on knot number 3 ( i.e. the third knot from the leading edge).  That setting gives it a really snappy roll up

The NSE 15 is a HUGELY fun kite, I love mine - especially when the wind gets up a bit.  I can't imagine anyone who buys one EVER selling it  Wink

Ha ha! I agree with you! Great kite, went back to it and am enjoying it, been playing with the bridle. Interestingly this one has a tail weight as well as the P400 LlE's , and I think the earlier ones did not have any weight...

Thanks Kevin. :-)

Cheers

Not sure Kevin, it's smaller than the weight on the nse so I am thinking probably 15 grms?

It make the kite a bit "flicky" and over responsive on Rollups and flic flacs, I might try it without the weight, not sure if it is necessary.
