Instructions for the FW Turbo bead system used on the SF can be found here -

http://www.gwtwforum.com/pdf/sf25instructions.pdf

If the adjustment system is the usual knotted pigtails, then to adjust for lower winds you need to loosen the larkshead knot on the uphaul line and move it UP nearer to the frame.  For higher winds DOWN further from the frame.

the high and low wind makes sense, but im confuse with the instruction on how to change it to 3 point. when i look at my 2.3pro, there is another extra line, similar the the nirvana.

i do not think that the sf 2.3 pro bridle changes into a 3 point as the former sf 2.3 ,the extra line on the bridle is to prevent tie ups with the tail when doing tricks.

that is a good explination. i did fly it out in low wind 2-3, and did notice the tricking ablity is waiting to be shown once winds kick up to 5. kite felt soild. heavyier in the air then what i'm use to with the QPro, but something i know i will get use to.  thanks for the input.  anyone whos has a 2.3pro let me know what your guys bridle setup is in low wind.
