*WINDLESS & FRENCH BRIDLES*

Postby Hector Herrera » Fri, Aug 03 2007, 11:59 PM

Okay fellow kiters...My WINDLESS SUL Rev. 1.5 with Indoor spars has been completed. :up:
Tomorrow is try out day. It has to be very early morning or late at night for there is not supposed to be any wind at all. I'll keep you posted. :clap

As you can see, I am using the finest or lightest fabric I could find, it's almost see through.

I am going to try with this "FRENCH BRIDLES" to see how it performs.

I see you didn't vent the kite. Let us know how it does in reverse.
It would also be interesting to try the bridle on one of your "real" revs to be able to compare. I've often wondered about those different bridles.

Yeah, it's diferent allrigh, some time ago when I made my revo. ll I did it with those french bridles, and I could easily do flic flacs, then I remove them and set the regular bridles...no more flic flacs. This morning I got up and tough about putting the french bridles on my regular modified vented revo. and I think I will, I want to be able to do flic flacs galore.
Yeah, I'll keep you posted.

AND...about 3 hours later... :shock: FRENCH BRIDLES ON VENTED REVO. 1.5
Hopefully, this kind of bridles. will make the kite perform tricks better or easier.
Mike: you'll be the first one to know the difference. Video will follow.
