Power Sled Addiction


Recommended Posts

There’s just something amazing about setting out 500 lb line on a 36 Sled. 7 sleds & 1 foil and counting... They just keep coming in after a kite shop visit...

 

 

Anyone else feel the same?

I'm just not getting that bug. Picked up a New Tech Sky Hook 60 last week. My second lifter if you don't count big Roks.

Would you fly that on 500#? and were do you get your line?

Yes, 250 low end and safe would be 500. ( I fly tons of laundry) I prefer to shop local and have B&S on SPI, TX. Online brand for me is Premiere Braided they have the 250/500ft and 500/500ft.

Sleds? Yeah, I live with a family of sleds. There are some that live upstairs in a closet, the rest live in the basement. They are a reliable group, and can go from "in the bag" to "ready to fly" faster than Clark Kent could become Superman. I try to make sure they get plenty of exercise, and they seem happiest when lifting something. Since everyone can't fly at the same time, I have to rotate who gets to go to the park. If I don't, one of them might get disgruntled and start corrupting the deltas. And I don't need that to happen. ...again. 

For the record, I love all the sleds equally. And I'm not just saying that because there is one in the room with me now.

I’m tearing up with joyful ness, laughter and smiles at your post Kansas Flier....My goodness.... HUGE SMILE! It’s a family event for me if one comes out to play... They ALL want to come out... and it’s a two hour ordeal with setup.

Power Sleds are great reliable kites. I have and still fly a majority of the sizes..

Keep an eye on the rear spar pockets of the 36 and up.... I have had them wear out over time and abuse. Easy patch and back in the air.
