I upgraded all of my lei kites to 5 lines (cabrinha 03, slingshot 01-03, wipika 03) You can even do it yourself. Check out www.herschers.com. All you need is some extra line. And for those non-pump leash kites, just wrap a sling around the middle strut near the leading edge. Works great. 5 line rocks for fast, easy relaunches. Also makes your kite more stable in gusts. And it makes it safer for self-launches and landings (no more corkscrew death spirals)
I've seen the naish setup and wasn't that impressed. It looks like it will tangle. Haven't seen the north, just been using my own.
