Where to get new pre made lines in UK

Tue Apr 28, 2015 4:40 pm

Hi all, I've googled it to death with no luck, I have searched the forum here but can't find it. I'm looking into getting some new pre made lines in the future. I've started looking at options but I cannot find anything in the UK on the online kite stores, there is a very narrow margin on whats on offer.

I'm running a Premier Addiction, I was looking at an 80lb line, I'm guessing I want Spectre? (this is the lines that came with it and they've stood all abuse) but have heard Laser Pro Gold is great (again can't find this anywhere to find out how much extra or to buy it). Need lengths of 50, 70 and 100 feet eventually although I'll probably start on the 70.

I'm running the kite mainly for cutting up the sky at the moment with the odd basic trick.

My 50 foot lines should be sorted as I'm looking to get a low wind kite like the Prism 4d which comes with 50lb 50feet lines.

As a side note also, does anyone know where I can get a decent 50 foot colourful tube tail to run behind a stunt kite, I'm guessing ripstop is the better material for these? Again I'm struggling to find this.

Thanks for your help

I stumbled across this, is this the same guy who designed the Highflyers kites back when I was a wee lad? :)

Thanks, I've emailed kites4u, climax protecs seem the way to go, I think they have a 90lb line which is close to what I want.

Climax lines are top quality and last for years and Manni is a good bloke to deal with. =D>
