Stock 50cm

Hot set up 49cm

Actually, spreader lengths have been all over the place for the Nirvana.

My NSE stock length is 52cm.

51cm is a nice length for old school flying with the Nirvana and I've seen that as a stock length as well.

If you shorten the upper spreader it makes it easier to do pitch tricks.

OTOH, things like 540s lose a certain je ne sais quoi.

Try long and then shave a bit off?

A little can make a big difference which was surprising to me. I recently lost one and cut a new one too short. I could see it slightly pulling in the LEs almost how the quantum pro SUL looks.  I hated how it flew and cut a new one - measuring twice this time, of course!  Smiley
