My questions are:
1. How do you connect the extension? Just a pull it through like a figure 8 sort of thing?
2. Will the knot in the line at the extension grab the other lines and foul the safety system? I don't want to try to flag the kite and then find that the lines are bound up.
3. Would I be better off just buying bulk and making my own sleeved lines?
Thanks in advance for letting me tap into the group knowledge.

So you don't have to sleeve them at the kite end? Also do they come with loops in them do they?
I sent a question to a business who sell them and they never got back to me.

I am not a fan of 'mixed' line types either. I just did it as an interim solution until my next supply roll arrived. However I do like Q lines.
Very easy and convenient when it comes to tailoring;
Instant response for bigger kites;
High visibility in the water (yellow).
A bit stiffer to setup when using older lines
yellow is fading just after one season
