  1. I don't do anything special. Twenty years ago, I tried using Armor All on some lines and it didn't seem to do much. I fly on grass and I have linseeds that are almost 20 years old. I do check them for stretch and adjust accordingly. Quadlines I tend to check when the wind is light and I am not doing anything. Dual lines I tend to just do when I notice that they are off. Years ago I took a 1x2 about 8 inches long, put two brass hooks in it on the 1" side and then tied a small cord to the center. I use this to check if the lines are even, it is pretty easy to do. I like this better than just using my fingers, but you can do it that way, too. Really, you only need to check new lines, or after you fly them in stronger than normal winds.

  2. When winding your lines after flying in a sandy environment, it's a good idea to take a very thin slightly damp cloth and run the lines through that as you wind. it will get rid of dirt particles that could rub and cause damage. Using a thin cloth to do this you will feel anything that may be trapped in the weave of your lines.

  4. I recently purchased some 24 inch diamond stacking kites from someone. These kites are from the rainbow kite company which is no longer in business. I am missing some nose pins and I that I cannot seem to find anywhere. The closest thing I've come is the Dyna kites. These kites have an aluminum frame and pretty spectacular I have eight of them but only three nose pins. Does anyone know where I can get these nose pins? And how much are these kites actually worth? Since this was made in the 80s and the owner died in 84 while trying to fly the worlds largest foil kite. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
