Hi,

Having recently gotten a used Transfer XTR STD, I did some initial measurement of the bridle and found that both the left and right sides are off by a little bit and the knots are a few cm off the black marks. Could be due to excessive stretch. Would appreciate if anybody have the stock bridle measurements for the XTR.

Also, some recommended mods for this kite would be nice as well. I found that with 15grams it yoyos ok, 20grams and it yoyos pretty fast but messes up the kite in other ways i.e. I don't seem to get deep turtles anymore, flatspins get a more narrow window of opportunity for proper execution. No weight it feels very floaty and nice but fades are very shallow and unstable. Backspins are also much more a chore with no weight.

Also the thing with this kite, my 1 pop multilazies keep rolling the kite up, especially when there is no weight. What gives?

Thanks
Darryl

Unsure if it was Mayet's or someone else but it's a 3 point without using the fade tip line (small one below the LLE fitting) and use 7PT spreaders.

Thanks guys.

Thief: Unfortunately that site you gave it doesn't show the bridle info for the Transfer. However its a very good site. I'll be sure to bookmark that.

ET and Tataouine:Hmm..your bridle measurements are pretty different. Is yours stock or was it modified a bit?
