Don´t you think it would help if you tell all of us where you are.
Continent, country or even city would be great.

Build it yourself, it's easy.
Take a look at the instruction down below.
Buy some non-elastic trimline (as used on sailboats) 2-3mm.
Make sure to do the right nots (dubbel 8?!) and that the lines are exactly the same length.

What I've heard Naish doesn't provide them anymore.

Thks for the link, looks interesting.
what do they mean by:
"Connect line 3 to line connector sewn onto the middle strut."

Where in the middle strud, and what line connector?
What's your experience with this system?
Can I install it on RRD 2002 type4 14M?
What about lines tangles?

Thks.

On a lot of kites there is a line-connector on the second or third strut, in the back.
Connect one end of the line to that connector and the other on the middle of "line 2".
The length of the line is a little harder to find out. I laid the kite down as on the picture and adjusted the length to have a stretched line (no 3).
A longer line provides less action in the steering.

My experience is a big difference in kite-handling. It's a lot faster. I've only done it on a 19.5 Naish kite. On my Takoon Skoop it is installed by default on delivery.
Sometimes, in high winds, the kite is almost to fast..

Line tangels. One time the bridels made the kite into a time-glass and impossible to relaunch.

The powersteering system also make it possible to relaunch the kite backwards. But be aware, it's in the middle of the powerzone when it takes power. Kind'a dangerus sometimes..

Good luck!
