23/12/2012 Blackheath

It was dull and breezy at 10:30am today.  Full vented with 4 wrap.  Quiet, so I took the opportunity to try the new leaders.
 
I am convinced that shorter adjustment intervals are the way to go but equally sure that sliding knots are not sensible.
 
Ultimately, equalising the lines is the critical element so finding a way to undo and re-tie the end loops will be the best way forwards.  A proper line equalising device makes sense here, not that I currently have one.
 
Having on occasions handed a mal-adjusted line-set to another experienced flier I know how much it is possible to compensate for incorrectly set lines
 
The sun did appear for a while today but then the low level cloud thickened and the gloom returned. 
 
A Boxing Day fly is planned on Blackheath by a few of us, followed by New Years Day fly as well as the usual Sunday meets.  12th and 13th January we will be at Shipley Country Park near Nottingham for a Super 16 (maybe) event.
