I've just put a leech line into my Quantum using the guide here. What kind of gains should I expect to see from doing that? Apart from being a bit quieter?

To some ears, silence is golden ;) 

Other attributes may be in part kite dependent, and you are encouraged to experiment. Have not tried it on a Quantum myself, but here is a snip from the Prism manual for the Zephyr -- while it is a lighter wind kite you may find some similar results. (The effects may or may not be subtle.)

Hope this image works:

Cool. Thanks. I wonder if it has any impact on the kite's ability to flare/fade? Suppose I'll find out next time I fly.

It increases speed. Do you find the flare/fade easier at higher or lower speeds? Higher speeds require faster reaction from you, and decrease precision. Like everything else it's a compromise between extremes.
