My supposition is there are 2 phenomena here. Stretched lines that are under high loading will stretch or creep as the weave elongates and the line gets thinner. These same stretched line lightly loaded will shrink as result of the weave loosening and can be quite severe on a line running through a ...

Re: Best 12 meter used kite for freestyle?

I have had a session a GP2 13 and liked it, my favourite kite is the 9 metre Fuel and been riding them since they made them. the kite had good upwind in the light conditions and had good power and steering, was 5 line and do prefer 4 so personal preference there. So if it is a deal you may well enjoy

Re: Flying lines breaking strength of various brands

On this subject i had a chance to check out some RRD lines a week ago. They were really stiff with a very fine braid. They reminded me of a Q line but much thinner. I was impressed, they seemed super strong, same diameter but seemingly stronger then my naish lines that a lot of brands use and i've ...
