I would have thought if the first knot was the same distance for top and bottom it wouldn't matter.
Oh, and I put a knotted length of bridle line on my REV I handles in 1988/9 for adjustment. Do I win a prize?
Ok that's what I was thinking too! This topic was amazingly helpful! Read thru it all, used a bunch of everyones' ideas, and here it is:
The arrows point at what would be the "factory" position of the 15" handles I bought. The knots were equally tied, top and bottom, back 2" from the end knot. Then I tied the middle knot on the top leader. I trimmed the 2" excess from the bottom leaders so they won't get caught up. Burned the ends with a lighter for good measure. Got 3 brake adjustments now, just what I need - I think lol. John B said he over-sheets the wind more easily with the 15" handles , and I find that I do too. Hopefully this leans it back enough.
I really like the pigtail adjustment leaders. I rotated my lines, top to bottom, after a month of heavy flying, and even with a good stretching, I'm having to dial-in alot more brake than I need on a fresh set of lines - about 2 knots worth. 15" handles were killing me today - no pigtails! After rotating the lines, used 15" handles and didn't even think twice about it. Talk about over-sheeting the wind!
I can't wait to try them tomorrow - might be time for a night flight tonight
