Bridle questions

Recommended Posts

So i have a lot of dual line and most all have a little different bridle. i dont know the names and what they all mean. turbo bridle, reverse turbo bridle, whats the difference.

i have a bead bridle system on my silver fox and its a knock of nirvana. the guy i was flying with yesterday made the same bridle that is on his nirvana and put it on his silver fox. the sea devil is the exact same as the nirvana as well what bridle does it have.

is there any benefit to a fancy bridle over a basic 3 point bridle for an older kite that wont see any slack in its lines?

cheers

One Kite Flyers Opinion

I prefer the 3 point over the reverse turbo. But, that may just be because that is what I am used to. What is the difference? If you look at them closely, the pig tail (the point where your lines attach) on the 3 point goes straight to the spine. On the reverse turbo it goes straight to the leading edge. So when the lines are slack and you hit the kite, on the 3 point you are hitting the spine, and on the reverse turbo you are hitting the leading edge. That may make the Taz easier on the reverse turbo.

Ohh man there are now way to many bridles! Non of the ones on Andy's site were a turbo or reverse turbo bridle. So there seems to be about 10 basic common bridles and they are all a matter of feel to the person and to the kite. So that said I should try all ten on each kite I own to know what I like.

Andy describes a "dynamic bridle," which I think is the same thing as a turbo bridle...so maybe there are only 9 different flavors you need to try ;)

Gotcha. I have heard of both and wasn't sure which ones were the same. I look at his diagrams and they look the same :)

so when i fly my silver fox UL 2.3 on the blue beads i cant pop an axle. but on the red beads i can. on this kite its either a 3 point bridle or a turbo bridle depending on what color bead you pick but it doesnt say which is which. it would be nice to know which one i like better and maybe why. but why is less important.

      His task in TURBO BRIDLE is to increase the flexibility range of the upper frame, which significantly reduces its damage in a sudden and strong gust of wind (I broke 6 tubes in 3 months)

      Hello. The middle section of the bridle has been damaged. The kite author has no plans for a bridle. I did not find diagrams on the net with these dimensions as mine. I had to save with a regulation cord. I am looking for bridle plans with dimensions such as photo. https://photos.app.goo.gl/vaxVCmjixviyCEE56

      Ok yawll after much deliberation I am going to present this months Karma drawing. Unlike most of you I just recently got back into kiting so yes this karma is not going to be huge but I am so willing to give back I am giving away Half of my kite bag they will be a single line 4 meter octopus and a 2.5 meter dual line parafoil rainbow color.  a kite stake,  3 sandbags, and a line winder. I hope there is  something for everyone in this batch. 
      Oh the reason for May 23 that's my birthday so a perfect day to give back. Also might give a bit more time for people to get involved. Good luck to all.
      Better and more images to follow.

       
      Some rules and guidelines:

      Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.

      Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.

      RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.

      You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.

      Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!

      This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.

      When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it.  

      The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.

      Good luck, and have fun!
