    • good to know,i will try to make more adjustments and if i will not be happy the kite will become a relay fancy tail for a sled i have or will be converted to single line. thank you all
    • I have an old but Imaculate adrenaline powerhouse dual line sports kite in need of some minor repairs I am near Glasgow anyone any suggestions Sent from my SM-G900F using KiteLife mobile app
    • Been there, done that ! My very first dual line foil would not fly at all, that is when you realise that you need to go with reputable makes ! Bill     
    • These style of kites have no internal diagonal (fabric) bracing. So bunch up when not moving forward with enough speed to inflate them firmly. They usually don't have air transfer holes between the ribs.   Also the B and C bridle lines (2nd and 3rd line from front) are situated too far forward and offer no support beyond the half way cord mark of the wing. It's a shame as with the same amount of effort during manufacture this bridal placement could be corrected very easily. Not sure what the easy answer is??  I too bought a cheapie when I first started power kiting and I'm sorry to say I cut it up and made it into windsocks.
