Blackstar Posted September 8, 2022 Author Report Share Posted September 8, 2022 So back to Bridling. Questions: 1.) Making the Uphaul and Outhaul out of a single piece and then the Inhaul attaches with a prussik knot - is this a functional design? If so, is the Prussik knot adequate to keep the connection point locked? I have certainly seen this on some kites before, but I wasn't sure if it was still used. I have seen "Stopper" knots tied at the ends of the adjustability. 2.) Do the Uphaul and Outhaul need to be separate lengths, adjusting the nose pitch for wind/controls only using the Uphaul? The way I have tied mine is the Uphaul and Outhaul are one strand, the turbo leg is part of the inhaul (see pic above) and the Inhaul has a Prussik around the Up/Outhaul strand as described in question 1.
