    Are the lines still good ?

    Thank you for the very thorough explanation! I don't have access to one of those scales unfortunately. And there are no more shops. I think I may just test my smallest kite with the 200 line and see how it fairs. I'll examine all the rubber joints and other parts as well and see how they look. Thx again!

    Thanks for the advice! They were indeed stored in a cool, dark place. I'm not sure what a spring sale is, so I might opt for the weight test method. Would you be able to recommend the best method for using the weight to test them? I do have a 5 lb. dumb bell. Could I use something like that for the test; and how exactly would be the best method in your opinion for conducting said test for durability. Thank you again!

    Are the lines still good ?

    Hello all, I used to fly all the time back in the late 80's to early 90's. But I ended up taking a long break and stored everything away. I was recently thinking of taking another go at the hobby so I brought everything out of storage. Been some time since I've done this, and when I did, it was always with a trained pro. So, I'm basically beginning pretty fresh, just remembering some of the base knowledge. The old equipment, I've only gone through the lines so far, look to be in very good shape- Was expecting ware and the like, but they look great. My question is, should the lines still be in optimal working condition based on appearance? I also kinda wanna learn which line strengths work best for which kites. I do have some really big powerful ones, down to medium/light range- Which I'm assuming 200 for the biggest- to 100 for the smallest? I haven't grazed over the forums yet, but will after this post. But any tips for some one beginning once again would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
