Just replaced the infamous 'P-lines' on several of my SS REVs. I noticed they seem to be different from the originals, they look more like nylon than Vectran or Spectra. Any info on this if it is true?

There are other posts on this subject, but the V-tek line actually twists up and shortens when it gets worn making it hard to figure out the correct length. You can ask Slingshot Customer Service for the correct line lengths. Then you can buy some line and make them yourself. If they won't tell you, PM me... I have a list.
I was replacing mine so often that eventually I wouldn't even bother to splice a loop in the ends. I would just tie a loop with a simple knot. Maybe it added a little drag but it works and it's easy.
I still say the REV 11m was the best kite I ever had.
