The Hp will be good for freestyle Use it on the A/C setting that will give more of the C kite feel. I would pull the depower strap in about 1 inch. The kite likes to jump forward because it is so fast. By pulling the depower strap in it helps slow this jump. The only way to make a 55cm bar feel like a 45cm bar is to get a 45cm bar. The conection points are at the 55cm mark so there is no way to fake 10cm. Just hold the bar more near the center which will slow the turnig speed.Enjoy the kites, there great.
