Vortex Lineset

Fri Aug 22, 2014 11:56 pm

Evening!

Just bought the gorgeous Vortex off Harv on here and cant wait to get it and head out.

Before that i need to get some flying line.

What do you all suggest i get for it and what length. Only have a budget of like £10 though so nothing fancy.

Cheers,


Matt

You need a decent set of dynema lines, 85ft x 90lb or there a bouts, don't waste your money on cheap lines!

NO! :shock: ......well to be fair they were made from one of the bulk spools I bought when the shop closed so I got them cheap. ;)

Can't let the guy try and fly a nice kite like that on a cheapo set of lines!
