Short Quad Line Sets

It's not just string any more. Talk about lines and line sets and anything else associated with them.

Ditto on the poetry.

Seeing this thread inspired me to go finish sleeving the short line set I started cutting out at KP X, plus another even shorter set. I cut them out of an (older mismatched) 120 foot quad line set, so after sleeving and evening up the lines, I now have one 38 1/2 foot set, and another 18 1/2 foot set, in case anyone wants to make matching sets to fly team at those lengths 8-).

I repurposed the two remaining lines into a 120 foot dual line set . . . . which I need in case I ever fly the KP X auction purchase :twisted: (or if I fly a fraction of the auction purchase). Hope to get to do that with you guys at a festival soon.

I'd like to see all those rainbow stunters in the sky. The most I've ever flown is six :)

Most I've ever flown is one . . . so it should be interesting. Plus my instinctive muscle memory reactions are all quad line now. I think I'll start with a small stack first . . . . maybe three or six. I'd really like some help with it - but I don't think I can make Decatur, so it will have to be some other weekend.

Got out tonight for a little while - first on the 80 footers, and then when the wind got shifty, I switched to a SUL on the shortest line set (18.5 feet). The rev sure is big at that length . . . throw and catch was easy, and I managed a couple 360s in the light wind, but I found axels to be impossible. I also had a hard time going slow in the tiny window, and "floating" like I've seen on some of the indoor videos. Walk of shame though is very short . . . . and ends in a throw (no walking back). Maybe I'll get out on the 40s (38.5) this weekend . . . .

What would a random visitor to the topic think reading about 240' lines in "Short Quad Line Sets" forum? :)

:) they're probably wondering what a regular set of lines are if we consider 240' lines as short!
