Enjoy.  I don't know whether Tim ever changed the bridle settings on the DS, but I slid the knot on mine 0.5cm downwards towards the outhaul as it made it sit more easily in the turtle.  Made the timing for Jls, etc much less critical.

Nice one Bryan. You know what this means. No decent winds in the UK for the next few months. Enjoy the DS.

I’m about to order some protec 100lbs 50daN 2x30m lines for the DS.
Hawkerhunter, I know you had previously mentioned 90lb as a recommendation, but no stock. Is there much difference in weight or anything?

Those lines are fine.

Hope you are enjoying the DS?

Thanks Honchoboy,
I’m loving the DS. Taken it out a good few times now. Was planning a good session today actually, but believe it or not it’s too windy to fly today!
