Converting Old Slingshot Torque to 4 line

Postby millipede » Wed Aug 06, 2008 8:38 pm

Anyone have any specs on how to convert a 2 line Slingshot Torque to a 4 line? I tried calling the factory but they said they have no info on this. :roll:
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Damn it's a long time ago, i recall you take off the bridle, roll up the wing tips to reveal the 4 line tabs, then you need what I just happen to find lingering in the warehouse the other day, the chicken loop converter kit. (Not that I'd reccommend it without something like the surefire release spreader bar, it has no safety.)

And four lines the same length, in fact better make it five lines and use the pump leash anchor point.

Seriously though get someone who knows about this stuff to help you.

Where are you from?

.......Jeeez! Are you living in one room with 14 others and only eat once a day? I cannot see another reason to do anything with this kite except a ritual burning. And by asking the question, you probably do not have the technical skills to tune this beast once you have made the mods.

.....given there are over 1,000 used kites on ikitesurf.com ...you can buy complete 2yr old kites on Ebay for <$300. , there's no reason ...beyond curiosity of what it would feel like to shake hands with a Siverback Gorilla.

Having blown you off; I still have one of the German kite magazines that had a couple of pages on how to make this change. I could scan and e-mail it to you.
