    A beginners laundry rigging set up

    This is an example of the carabiner and line wraps and the red line is where the laundry would hang.

    A beginners laundry rigging set up

    This is one area that I really enjoy... (Sled and Flo-Form Fan).. What I do is use a large lifter kite (Look at my Photo album in Bio if you wish) depending on the wind.. But what we prefer 24 or 36 Sleds on days where winds are between 8-20 mph. I always go overboard on line when hanging laundry also. 250lb for the 24 Sled and 500 lb for the 36 Sled. My preferred method is carabiner vs. line loops. I attach line laundry with a carabiner and wrap the main sled line at minimum three times around the carabiner . I equally space my laundry (using arm lengths to measure) with the laundry with most drag towards the anchor side. You may have to adjust the amount of laundry depending on winds and what the pilot kite can hold steady. On the laundry side, I use sturdier/bigger/heavier gauge carabiner (Aluminum for light weight) for heavier laundry and smaller for lighter laundry.

    Buying large swivels

    I generally use swivels on line under -100 lb... everything else I agree with @edmond and use marks head knot on both kite end and stake end. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    A bit confused Where to start?

    Just going to chime in and let the pros Give solid advice after. One thing that you mentioned (key words): feeling tug / noise. I like/prefer foil kites for pull and some noise and they are small and fit in small case for carrying around on carabiner on backpack. One brand is - HQ carries the following Symphony Beach SportKite in various sizes. Island Life | UFUV | Kite Life Subscriber 1482

    The Box lifted laundry like butter flying steady with no issues.... she looked great next to the 10M Trilobite. Thinking about the next kite : 18 ft. Mega Macaw [emoji848]..... Island Life | UFUV | Kite Life Subscriber 1482

    Into the Wind - Zodarion

    I absolutely love the Widow NG, been using it without tail and it is amazing. When I went by the shop a few days ago, I saw the Magnum (Makes: Lots of Noise) is what they told me... It's in the future for me.. Box Kite Delta first....

    Do you remember your very first kite?

    I remember it well... A Gayla Baby Bat. I remember placing the eyes on it and the paper sticker on the keel to attach the line. The line which was on the roll.
