Any North Evo riders out there have advice on what difference there is on riding an evo on a four or a five line set up. Also should the four line set up be a low V or a high V? I am contemplating trying out some 2013/14 Evo's.

Hey man I've got a 2014 Evo on five lines and a smaller 2015 on four (the v is quite high on both). Def give the Evo's a try out they are awesome kites, very controllable perfect for cruising and jumping.
As for the difference between five and four lines not that much as the v's are compareable height and the fifth line is unloaded so doesn't affect the flying.
The five line is faster to drop out the sky when you throw the safety but you can invert the four line and keep flying.

You can roll the kite on its back in the water by useing the fifth line for ultra low wind relaunch, but I've never seen anyone other than myself and a few foilers use that so maybe thats not a big thing (important concideration).

Sorry if this is a bit garbled I'm five beers in.

Thanks for that advice. I have flown it on a five line and the fifth line look a little slack so was wondering if it was actually doing anything.

Cheers for responding.

Hi Guys,

The EVO is a 4-line kite, with the ability to attach the 5th line from a 5-Line bar. The 5th, doesn't play an integral part of the kites flying ability. Some say the 5th line has an effect on the pitching of the kite and therefore the turning. If you have the choice, always fly the Neo, Evo, Dice, Mono and Dyno's on a 4 line bar.
