For years I have been repairing leading edge screen by undoing the stitching and replacing the old screen with new. BIG JOB
No more.......For the past year or so I simply sew a section of new screen on the BACK of the kite, sewing along the top, bottom and ends of the new screen. I then cut away the old screen from the front side. This method holds very well, and the only thing you see from the air is where the screen is double for 3/8 of an inch at each end of the repair. (from 100 feet away, you don't even see that)
Just like a two color applique.
It is not necessary to replace a whole section. Partial screen repairs are just fine.
I use the "three stitch zig zag". The same stitch that Rev uses.
Each section of repair only takes a few minutes.
Try it, you'll like it.
