      Hello,
      I'm trying to find where to buy original replacement lines for my Peter Lynn Hornet 4.0. I think it's the bridle line that needs to be replaced. I did try to replace it with dyneema line but I guess I didn't buy a strong enough line and it snapped. I didn't like to use that line anyway as it can't be tied in the same way as the original lines. What I want to get is a replacement line identical to the originals. I expected PL company to sell this as a matter of course but have been unable to find any for sale. Does anyone know if it's possible to buy these and can point me in the right direction?
      Thanks

      Does anyone have replacement line recommendations for a Rev 1.5 SLE?
      I bought the kite about 10 years ago.  I’d only had it a little while when I took it to Port Arkansas,TX and was flying on the beach.   While taking a break, a car drove over my lines and tore them up.   I think they were trying for the kite, but only got my lines thankfully.   Lacking lines, I put the kite away and haven’t flown since.   However, I now have children that are old enough to begin flying and would like to start flying the Rev again with them.
      I’ve searched but can’t find a good recommendation for replacement line.   What weight, length and type of line should I look for?
      Thanks.

      Hi I'm a kite newbie except for an Into the Wind Delta I had years ago. I've seen the big octopus kites all over lately, and had to have one.
      Now after hours of researching I realize there is very little info out there about how to attach, what kind of line, etc.
      I have found videos of how to daisy chain, and the larks head knot.
      I bought 150 lb line for my 49 ft octopus. It's a soft airfoil with a complicated looking bridle. Anyone out there have one? Any tips about how to attach to a line? Do I need heavier line? EmmaKites just told me.. no, we don't have instructions. Downside of ordering from China:( Any help appreciated guys!

      Helping my dad sell kites to reduce his collection. Most are new or nearly new.
      This is the revised list after several were sold. Most are not priced but will work on any you are interested in. Shipping is extra. The Prism Nexus is $180 (pictured). 
      If there are typos in my table below,  the photos of the original hand-written list are correct. (see original posting by searching "2 dozen")
      (Note: several people have reported they are very happy with what I sold them over the last month since the original post. If there is a problem I will fix it.)

      I am a new flier.
      1) I do not like the stock handles that came with my rev 1.5B. I want to upgrade to the snagless handles, but there are solid aluminum, anodized aluminum, featherweight stainless... What are the differences? What should I get?
      2) I have SkyBond Premium Spectra lines, and they bind up a lot once you hit 4-5 twists. Is this normal? I was thinking of getting Laser Pro Gold to have as primary line with the Skybond as back-up. I know both lines have been recommended on the forum. Does the LPG fly better with less binding?
