Anyone rate converting the kite launch to a single line system?

Advantage/disadvantage?

How is it rigged?

Cheers.

Hi Rodders
We had it briefly but switched back to the twin line system.  The friction in the single line system was very high and it got tangled quite a few times on drops resulting in unplanned fishing trips!  Also the tapered pole isn't flush with the bowsprit hole in the bow resulting in the boat carrying a lot of water in any wind & waves
Hope that helps
Cheers
Nick
