... Hey Toby, from one of your pictures, I noticed a bit of a bridle.

Does the 18m have a 5th line bridle (like the smaller rebels) or does it have a front line bridle aka Dyno's? Is it like the normal Rebel only doesn't need the 5th line loaded?
A pic of the bridles would be nice!!

cheers,

Robbie :D

Loaded 5th.

It is connected like a V.

Front lines very simple bridle with 2 connections I think.

Nice, the bridle thing in Dyno was slightly annoying. This is a cleaner setup.

Arriving in Tarifa today, maybe 15-20 knots, will fly it with 32 m lines then.
Had it out in around 18-26 knots in Porto Pollo on Wednesday, no problem to hold the power, but wind and conditions were so bad (fully overrated spot!!!) that I stopped after 1 hour.

I need either Brazil, Cabarete or Egypt to be able to see its potential.

Maybe winds are good in Tarifa so I can compare better.

Latest at the Airstyle Hangout in Ras Sudr Egypt end of Setember I will be able to compare with Dyno and another proto.

Good to know it has some front line bridal connections for a bit more support across that large frame with a loaded fifth ...

I actually don't care which bridle system, as long as the kite does what I want ;-)

Miss what Eree? Two different kites.... Are you missing something Eree?

Do you have a direct question or are you just being a smart ass, with more emphasis on the latter word?

What's ya question mate?

Or maybe I'm missing something?

... ahh cool, I get it now! I know what you mean with the dyno's bridle being slightly annoying, nothing to do with the perfomance thats for sure but more to do with the way they tangle when packing up ect!!! All good hey!!!!

cheers,

Robbie :D

p.s. hey,,,, somebody got a camera they can lend to Toby,,,, looks like Toby's is broken! Need more pics dude :thumb:
