I never take the lines off my foils, but always off my LEIs. Just doesn't seem to work with the LEIs ...
@ Clew - my finds this week ... a watch, an anemometer and - a board
all left behind at the beach!
@ Peter - getting lines tangled seems
like a problem but in reality it almost never happens ... if you take a teeny-weeny bit of care wrapping the lines up and keep the bar outside the kite when you pack.
And if you do, it's pretty obvious what lines goes where so just loop the bar through - we're talking the "massively complex"
Flysurfer bridles here too
Same with twists - for me, untwist the bar a few times as you walk out the lines and you're left with maybe one or two turns when you set the bar down.
@ Billy - another good point ... I don't trust bars not to poke holes in things either
@ Windy - $250 for bars - where are you buying them from?!?
@ Frank - I run them through my fingers and check them as I pack up. And with the bar outside the kite, it's easy to unwind them all and tune the lines.
