I was trying to avoid pulling it apart while it's still crispy...but i think it's to stop the nock falling out.

This white line is most probably the leech line, going inside the trailing edge of the kite and makes the sail silent in flight (a bit of tension is required and it will also give more responsiveness to the kite)
In the bag(s): R-sky, Benson, Prism, Revolution, Quadrifoil and a few more...

No you're right, it looks like two sets of lines, the right hand side loops left and vice versa. The black bead tightens/loosens the leech....smart.

Looks like an active leach line, same as on the TNT.

Fine choice is the Spur, one of, if not the most fun dual liner I've ever flown.
Congrats :)
