This is from duals but it MIGHT relate. When doing roll up stuff I pull to early at times not fully engaging the roll ups. Still heavy handed especially in the higher winds. Pull to hard and I've got similar wear points on all my kites. The Tekkens are cut thru like that. The type of roll ups on Lams kites leave a catch point at the bottom. Flipping the kite there instead of engaged in the roll up has cut the LE.Lam said I've been collapsing the tunnels. End result is a cut.Lucky that it doesn't affect flight. Not knowing exactly where the lines are positioned and pulling to hard is my issue. My GUESS is you've hit that wear point on your kite many times. That may be a spot where people have added wear tabs when tweaking their Revs.JB type upgrade?

Thanks Breezin, this vented has been rode hard that's for sure. It has been taped, glued, stitched, and screwed!! One more won't hurt it.

I just checked Edmond Dragut , it has not worn into center horizontal spar. We have good winds, I'm out!!!

Got a Hydra that looks like a Frankensteen project. Been flown more Wilder than it should have. Every time I go to the shed it makes itself as inconspicuous as possible.
