  1. What is the best lifter ever if I need huge power and stability ?

    Not sure to be able to continue (some ealth problems) but you will find the way I done there : My best thought, Guy
  2. What is the best lifter ever if I need huge power and stability ?

    Hey RobB, Thanks a lot for your answer, and yes thanks so much for this good way for my investigations :-) I guessed PowerSleds was the right answer - the best ratio power/size for lifting - and you confirm these thoughts :-) Best Regards, Guy
  3. Hello all, I need a lifter with very big power and very good stability. What is the single line kite model which will be able to respond to my need ? (with the best ratio size/power of course) Thank you very much for your sharing of experiences. Cordially, Guy

  7. Perfect bridle material ?

    Thanks a lot John, as I was afraid, I did not understood as well as I should... Well, anyway my friend, thanks for the link !
  8. Perfect bridle material ?

    Thanks for your advice John, always listened as it deserves ;-) But as a French native speaker, if I think I understand what you mean both Paul and you saying "cored lines" or "dacron sheath OVER the spectra lines (called "hi-test" bridle line)", alas I do not find these lines in Europe easily... Maybe you could send me some links (even USA ones) of some online shops selling these kind of lines or even some descriptions online of their respective makers, so I can search the same kind of lines here in France ? Anyway, thank you very much (again) for your time ! Best Regards, Guy
  9. Perfect bridle material ?

    Many thanks to all for your advices ! See you later, Guy
  10. Perfect bridle material ?

    Hello Mark, Thanks a lot, but I do not understand as well as I should : do you mean you use Spectra as "bridles" and not only as "lines" ? (to answer you : I'm planning to bridle a self made very special single line prototype) My Best, Guy
  11. Perfect bridle material ?

    Hi Bill, Thanks a lot for your answer. I understand you use Climax Dacron Lines as bridles ? Is that right ? Best Regards, Guy
  12. Perfect bridle material ?

    Hello folks, What about "the materials of the perfect bridle ?" I am looking for what material to use to make my bridles perfect : light, strong, cheap, and especially that does not become entangled, never ! I guess something like small dyneema or something else can do the job, but I guess kite making world already knows something perfect.Do you have an idea of what material meets this specification, and where can I find it ? Thanks a lot for your time reading me, and your help if you can do ! Best Regards, Guy
  13. Single line AND dual lines kites ?

    YES it is ! Thank you very much Hadge ! Next step : to find it to buy it online Cordially, Guy
  14. Single line AND dual lines kites ?

    Thanks Dragonfish, I did not know this one. Say, it has spars, but the one I saw was a foil kite without any spar... Very interesting this one, I'm also interested in any kind of single&multi lines kite models, with or without spars, inflatables, etc. I continue my searching
  15. Single line AND dual lines kites ?

    Hello kite friends, I can't remember few days past I saw a dual-lines kite which can be flew as single line too. I guess it was a "Premier Kites" brand, but I'm not sure.Could you tell me what is this kite and a link to find it please ? Over this, what are the kites with this same ability, say what are the kites able to be single line as well as dual or even quad lines ? Thank you veru much for your help, Signed the poor "flying in the clouds" Guy
