Just wondering if anyone has experimented with the Prism 4D enough to post any helpful tips to get the 4D to fly a little better in anyway.
Thanks in advance.  Smiley

I only enjoy it in super light wind - 0 to 2 or so.  I've seen folks fly it in alot more, but anything over 5 with this kite doesn't make too much sense to me, although it will not fall apart or anything.

I think it comes with a a turbo bridle by default, but I have experimented by just sliding the knot down to make a 3pt as well.  I can't say which I prefer, but you can try that.

It's a super-light kite, most tricks with it will rely on you making the kite 'ride the wind' rather than relying too much on momentum to get it through.  It's a light touch, but it will backspin, cynique, cascade, multi-lazy, slot, axel, pancake to fade all reasonably easily if you know how to do those tricks.

I used to fly my indoor kites outdoors when we had no wind before I got a 4D.  Now, I'd much rather fly it - it's just more capable and flys in nothing if you want to.  I know flyers who do fly it indoors for the same reason.
