Actually spelling BRIDLE right makes this particular anal retentive TURD :kid_brooding: (complain, it's only font and you know what I mean) feel better. And it's COLOR if that makes you feel better. It's spelled the same whether your going for accent or not. LMFAO

Bad week, sorry for the challenge. Just never had a complaint on my font other than being to COLORFULLY girly for my name. LOL

I missed Lincoln City and now Brookings because of family issues. :boxing: Anyone else ever thought your wanting needs in kiting could come first if the problem wasn't totally serious? (Death or such) :big_starwars:

It's cool Brian, I just needed to vent and thought this was a better place for it than in the house. Might want to edit your "shit" though. I was corrected by a good friend for typing turd on here. LOL
I wasn't challenging you about your spelling or the accent you type. I was challenging the turd patrol. LOL

Sorry my good friend, I'll not use the word turd for a while I promise.

Dean :ani_punk:

And your right, stuff happens all the time. ALL the time is sometimes the problem. ROFL

And Brian, I've learned to read your accent. DON'T make me have to relearn how to read your posts. :kid_devlish: Feel me? LOL
If I wouldn't take a half hour trying to spell out the accent I'd do it and everyone would just have to take it and like it. Unfortunatly I have learned :big_bangin: to be as proper as possible. Like I said, " anal retentive" :o :lol: I said anal!!!!

So your admin on here too? Am I to assume that your the one with the problem with my font even though I'm not cursing but using a humorous name to a person that irks you? Kids don't need censorship because they know what it means, know how to use it in context and for the most part use it when the censors aren't listening.
I am trying really hard not to type like I think. Just so I can yak with you all on this forum. But a double standard really upsets me. Beating around the bush and just saying what you mean are the same thing. What your hoping for by beating around the bush is that some ppl might be kinda dull and not understand what your saying. In most cases the kids who might be reading this forum aren't that dull. They know darn good in well (sorry Watty) what your typing.

Dean :ani_punk:

Take it easy Dean. Fonts don't really matter do they, and whos talking about them? Whats with you today :rolleyes:

Okay, back to the original subject kinda sorta. Not really though when you think about it. :kid_devlish:

I'm thinking now about moving the lower tow points down toward the tips more. :cat_goofy:
By taking the pigtail on the bridle off, marking the existing position of the current loop and moving it down the bridle line about 3".

Keep in mind that my bridle is (compared to what I've seen latley) rope compared to the newer bridles. If this was a newer bridle I wouldnt be thinking about how to make it more resposive with smaller inputs.

Just a thought to get you thinking about cause well,,, I've been thinking again B)

Why not just attach your lines to the wing tips.

If I'm not actually attached to the bridle won't that effect how the bridle supports the kite? Or is only the top of the bridle the actual support?

Have a look at what some of the French are doing. There are threads about it round here somewhere. If you are still concerned about support then take a leaf from one of our UK flyers - he attaches to the bridle on the upper tow points. This spreads the main load. Then he connects to the bottom of the leading edge with his brakes to get the sensitivity. It is all a matter of taste, but worth an experiment maybe.

Ok, going to the lower tips might be sensitive. Still don't know as there was NO way you could get the Rev up. There was plenty of wind. But ya can't use equal length lines. With the top leaders pulled all the way into the handles and the bottoms all the way out there was still too much brake to even think of flying. You couldn't even get the tips slightly off the ground.

So if I get to go out today I might try again but use my staggerd lines. Put the short ones on top and the long ones on the bottom and see if that'll work.
