    • Thanks. I am in South Africa and fly mostly when on holiday when we go to the beach. I have a cheap 1,6m foil kite which my kids and I fly, I also have a little single line I bought when the kids were smaller, but they get bored with it now. I have another small 2 line foil which is a really bad design and doesn’t fly well. My pride and joy is my Radsail 3m, but I can only manage this for short periods at a time. I want to get a 2m foil, and have found 2 options available. Both are the same price, both show 2m. I can get the Radsail 2m or the Prism Synapse 200. The Radsail comes with a nice backpack, but I know that is not a reason to choose.   Bridle lines look better on the Prism, but they attach with small holes through the foil vs the Radsail that has small strips stitched into the kite to hold the bridles. Your opinions are welcome please, which route should I go?

    • Whatever length you are after whether it be 30ft or 120ft that length is your finished target but as Wayne says it does not have to be dead accurate ! I usually add 3ft to my cut lengths which is ample to allow for sleeving at both ends and a bit of trimming to finish.  I made up a set of 30 and 50ft from a standard 80ft set, sleeved at the handles only, the 30ft ended up at 30ft, the 50ft ended up at 47 ft, no big deal !
