    • Indeed, doing it yourself is a different kind of satisfaction.. insider's trick. To do a very fast spin, try pushing the top line out instead of pulling the brake line in.

    • OMG, just took out my newly finished Symphony Pro 2.5.4.  I love it!!   What a totally different experience to the regular 2 line kite.  Taken my enjoyment of kiting to a new level. Took a bit of trial and error to splice the bridals but got there after I realised that the string I was using wasn't good enough (initially tried using the line that came on the Symphony 2.5 Pro, but it didn't open up nicely and was nearly impossible to splice).  I recently bought replacement quad lines for a Peter Lynn hornet so ended up using the old flying lines to make my bridals. I managed to get my bother into it too after I bought my niece a Symphony Beach 1.3 for her birthday.  He instantly bought a 2.2 pro and will no doubt be converting it after seeing my first flight video of the 2.5.4.   Strong work @riffclown thanks again.  Can't believe HQ aren't selling the 4 line Symphony Pro kites out of the box but there is something satisfying about doing the conversion yourself (I even learnt how to use Mrs LeMac's sewing machine!)
