....Even if I was doing a slide launch I still would only walk 25m away from the kite once as I unrolled my lines since I use a line keeper I do not need to run my lines out
Where do you store your line keeper by the way ?
Flipping kite to slide launch is extra step....takes a bit of time
Installing 4 lines on kite takes a bit of time too...
... since they have to be removed 1 by 1 from line keeper and put on each pigtail
I bet about a minute of time extra.....so you are going to be a bit slower than me....
..... no matter what .....since I do not have to do those things at all
cheers again...hope you can laugh about it all
What do you think?
