Line set skills

Recommended Posts

Some clinic skills have no flying time attached to them but are so invaluable to a complete flyers toolbox. Thank you John Barresi Riff and others for a complete clinic experience!

Yup, making lines. Even if you don't regularly tie your own to save money, it's good to know how it's done so that when you have to, your day isn't ruined because you can't. Knowledge is everything, and I'm sure you remember everything he said, right? :lol::huh::doh:

You can leave the kite end unsleeved. Less weight and air resistance that the kite must pull. Try it. You may like it. Just tie a knot at the end of the loop for something to grab when untying the larkshead. Less drag means you can use more brake and still keep up with the others. Less drag means your axels will swing around more easily and/or faster. Your throw after catching will make it to the end of your lines easier, etc. I'm sure if you think about it, you can come with a couple more benefits yourself.
