Been lurking in the background for a while now, about time I made first post so here goes.
Been flying revs now for about 12 months, started with the rev 1 then added rev 1.5 sle & rev 1.5 vented. So far I have flown all kites on same lineset 150lb x 85ft, thought it was about time got new lines.
I have bought a roll of 150lb shanti line & some sleeving & was going to make a long & short lineset, say 100/125 for the long. Does this seem about right.
For the short set not sure what length to make them, the intention was to use them at festivals etc when space is restricted, and I would like to have a go at the catch & throw, which I believe is better with short lines.
Hi all just got a rev exp great fun to fly , am just wondering what the best way to wrap your linws up after wards , some say on to a winder and some on the handles , just wonder what everyone thinks cheers gary.
Well as a power kiter I allways used to wrap around the handles but I now use the two winder method as long s you wind on and off the same way you should have no probs i:e allways hold in the right hand and wrap clockwise then to unwrap just go anticlockwisestill holding in the right hand and all should be well ? but if the lines fall off your handles in the bag then your f**ked
Wind all lines onto one winder, larks knot the pairs,and then put both sets (now 4 lines) on the notch of the winder then wind, not a figure of 8, but just round and round the winder.
Used to do it the 2 winder method but i now find it a lot easier to wrap all togeather now. Then when you come to wind out, stake all lines (2 lots) walk the lines out, then get a pair in each arm, spread your arms wide, the lines then should divide themselves to the stake, attach Rev at the stake end, and handles on the end you have just parted.
Seems that most of the Flying Squad does it this way.
