add on to above /     As my new EXP takes off, the left wing is higher than the right one and if i try to hover i have to push my left thumb forward a lot more than my right one.     MY hands are level and there is no hang up on the bridle. If i have to adjust the lines; left or right, also both on one side or just one .    Thank you         Derek

Line maker... LaserPro or Shanti (US suppliers), Climax is also popular (Europe).

My favorite kite shop is www.thekiteshoppe.com, they know about ALL kinds of lines and are happy to help.

As for your uneven lines... Put all loops at the handle end on something solid (ground stake), and adjust so all are even.

This is the most accurate and long-term solution.

KENT , JOHN . Thank you.            John,yes iv heard of Shanti and Climax but as you say Climax is the one over in UK. I will buy the line in UK as postage from US is quite expensive. For example; i ordered a package from US and UPS quote $40 and the contents of the package is only worth $105.                 Kent, There is a lot to digest in that site. I will take my time and read it all.     Thank you both.    Derek
