Can I use a B-series bridle in an EXP? Had my EXP bridle brake today with less hours on it than my B-series. Use the EXP to let friends fly. But I do not want it breaking all the time. And my B looks good as new. Has anyone done this? Can it be done? Thanks for the help...

Far as I know you should be able to swap any 1.5 type bridal for another.

I possibly stand to be corrected on this though.

It's not hard to tie up your own bridle, but you can buy replacement bridles quite reasonably priced too.

Rev 1.5 bridles should be identical, aside from color and material variances.

As said above.

The EXP tends to have the THiCKER bridle line usually than a B Series.As Steve B says.Its not that hard once you study the Knotts in a bridle.Just try a piece in if ya can for now and try it.Knott tying is an art[ Black Art some would say].

Tim Bensons[Benson kites] and the Boy scouts.Whack them in ya Browser.Step by step stuff.

Good luck trying.The worst thing that can happen is you learn some kewl Knotts.Which come in handy in the strangest of places.Like makeing Stacking lines and Anchoring BIG STUFF.

BRIAN... tie,tye,thia,tiy...get knotted
