Re: 120' lines

They also make it easier to hold a position in the sky. The lines are so stretchy they absorb a lot of the gusts. Fly the 75' lines for speed and snappy moves, the 120' for slower more precise looking moves. I noticed this today at lunch time... I was able to do quite a few things I've been having ...

Short Quad Line Sets

What's the most practical length for a short quad line set? I really want to fly in my yard this winter but don't have a lot of room. I played briefly with a set of 25' lines and they were just too short for my tastes... Looking for the balance between usability and clubbing myself over the head wit...

Re: 120' lines

Re: IKE Logo Kite. Don't make it this way...

First of all, bad ass kite Mike!!!! :up: Is the logo all applique? What about converting it to a delta? Use a light color (white,or lt blue), and just add triangles to either side. I dunno, sounds easy enough? Please share with us how you made up the sail with our logo on it... This could open up a...
