    A bit confused Where to start?

    Most of the time the twists are false twists. Meaning the lines twist 20 times one way and then 20 times the other. I always stake my handles then hook up the kite without untangling the lines. Seemed strange to me at first after untangling lines for way to many years. After the kite is hooked up pull the lines light against the stake and spread the lines apart. Most of the wraps will undo themselves and the few that are left at the handle ends will usually come out easily flying the kite in circles. You can check the direction of wraps on your way back to the kite to know what way to fly it to untangle them. I usually just fly it up and spin it a few times one way to see if the lines are twisting more or less. If need be spin the kite in the opposite direction. With quad lines on occasion I have to feed one handle thru the center of the other because I wasn’t careful when I put them away. One other thing that seems to help is to keep tension against the stake wind winding them up. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    I got to run it by the boss but I would love to bring Jack to this. For me flippy trucks, slack line, and stalls and slides would be awesome. Team flying activities would be fun as well. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

    Replacement line for Rev 1.5

    Another option and what I’ve been doing is buying 300 yard spools of LPG and making my own. Purchase sleeving material and tool for less than $20 and the spool of line for just over $100 and make them yourself. Then you’ll have the tool to fix sleeving on broken lines, and make a shorter set for urban flying. Sent from my IPhone
