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?
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?
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!

The original Ninja Eyes set by Bazzer. This is the very first set made, and are the only one of two sets made in the Rev1 sail size. Sails were sewn by Bazzer, but they were finished by Revolution. They are the only kites finished by Revolution that does not have the revolution logo imprinted on them, that I know of. The other kite set is owned by Ben Dantonio, retired general manager of revolution(the last I heard). AS far as I know, these are the kites that started the series of special kites made by master kite makers for Revolution.
This set is one vented and one full sail kite, with stacking lines, 120ft laser pro line set, 15 inch snagless handles. The kites are in very good shape, I never flew them in high winds and always took good care of them. No rips, tears, or stains, mesh is in excellent shape. The buyer will be tasked with keeping a bit of Revolution history, they are listed in John Mitchell's list of notable kites in Revolution's past.
$2000, including Priority shipping in the US.
I will consider offers. I do dicker.
