    Looked at it again after quite a while. And learned something again.

    Good clear video of the hand work. You made it simple and the knotted ending is a great idea.

    I did my practice today in glorious weather. Surprisingly I find the change of the grip position very difficult. I understand the background and the intention in John's recommendation - but I find it difficult to implement it. Small tutorial - big effect!

    Great! Good practice! Simple and effective. You can also test different kites very quickly. And it is fun :-)

    Nicely and simply explained. Too bad that there is no part II. Would have liked to hear more about the effect of the bottom lines, individual knot ladders - but also tuning on the bridle or ... or... or ...

    Good tips and explanation to the lines. I got short lines and can only confirm the recommendation.

    Recently I replaced the stock leaders that came with my Revolution handles with pro leaders offered here https://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/18-pro-leaders-100-black/ They are longer on top, and the knots are a little closer together. That got me to rewatch this tutorial, and the new leaders gave me, or more factually made me, retune. I ended up with the bottom lines about the same distance as before from the handles, but the top lines are now two inches further out. This is described as a brake heavy setting in the tutorial, and it just brought my two new kites to life - a full sail Bazz

    Is this really important? For ten years I flew alone although not a lot, and I never equalized my lines. Recently for the first time I flew with a very good flier who wanted to try my Rev 1 Carl Robertshaw Masterpiece (bought because I loved the colors). Soon after launch he looked at me and asked if I had equalized my lines because the kite didn't feel "balanced". I didn't think that would matter much, that my brain would just compensate for minor inequalities in line length. He said no, equal lines do really matter at any level. I had watched this tutorial in the past but thought it was for

    This is a clear, concise tutorial which will really help you manage your quad lines, especially if you pay attention to all the points emphasized. Ten years ago I started flying quad kites, and my only instructor was these JB tutorials. I haven't always flown a lot, but for quite a while what I learned from this video served me well managing my lines from setup to breakdown. Somewhere I lost my way and began to experience excessive line tangles and twists. I just watched the tutorial again and read through https://kitelife.com/forum/topic/7662-line-management-suggestion/ whereupon I just reali

    Quite hard to get it right ... this is harder to keep it in a straight line, not a scribble line ... (laughing) If you think straight line traveling bicycle is easy to do ... ... then it is time to upping your skills Do traveling bicycle in a circle, triangle, square, star or octagon line (formation)
