  3. I agree with @frob - Mystic 10 in an ST won't make a huge difference, and catching or playing with the flex is a game unto itself.

    With the UL, we switched to a dyneema bridle to lighten and shift the weight loading during glides, Mystic 10, less reinforcements (not needed on a UL), some other changes, roughly a 1oz reduction in weight.

    Overall, the UL is about some lightening, less drag from the bridle and use of the more flexible frame to more easily cup in lower winds.

  16. While I reconcile the subscriber database this morning, a little something to listen to... I greatly enjoyed this "fireside chat" with Nic O'Neill (@Flash) from http://sportkite.org - broken into three parts:

    Predominantly introduction, historical discussion and general exploration...

    A little more into some philosophy...

    More specific discussion, mostly about quad leaders...

    I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed doing it! 🙏
