Hi Stevobro, welcome to the forum!
I’m quite new myself and from what little I know, bridles can be a tricky thing, with even the slightest adjustments having big effects on the style of flying you’re wanting to get into.
What kind of kite do you have and what are you planning to do with it?
Not sure how long you’ve been flying for, but If you’re just into it, it may be a good option to get one already made up from the kites manufacturer.
At any rate, folks on here would be able to give you some good advice anyway.

If you don't know what kind of kite it is, a photo will help. If it's one we recognise there might already be a diagram online giving dimensions. There's several people here who can offer good advice.
