OK time for a curve ball, what happens if one or two of the Team do there own bend on the handles!!!!
I bend my handles so they are straighter than all the others in the Team.
So guess I need to get Standard handles, and leaders. I'll have to re learn all the hand movements...
I would say that they then wouldnt be std.Thats if they had been bent to a custom fit or personal choice.SO, arent std.We have a std Handle.We have Long Handles.Short Handles,custom Handles,homemade handles,and the ones i sent Gary,,,,ODD HANDLES...LOL.All good stuff.
BUT,We have a recognised std Handle.
We dont have std Leader Lengths.Do we need um. What would be a std Leader Length that everyone could use as a refrence,guide,learning point.A bench mark to work from.The JB Leaders are as good as any to start from.That could be std.
Had the very conversation Today with Dave B.
Q,What ya flying on Dave.
A,Last Knot on Top.Next to last on Bottom.But mine are an inch Longer Leaders on top.
Wouldnt make anyl scense,but we use JBs Leaders as a Bench Mark or Retrence point.So Dave was Meaning,his Top leader are, one inch longer than the JB Supplied kit/handles/leaders/
Now the proof in the pudding is this facinateing fact
Dave tried my new Mega on my settings before the discussion and didnt like it AT ALL
.I had flown it and was dissapointed at its control.Especially when Turning.We reset the Leader/brake to his above setting[and my usual setting]....JOBS A GOODN....
Buy Bruce a Cigar.Diffrent kite completely.All for the sake of three knotts.
Thats why i reckon a Std would help.Doesnt mean ya cant do what ya want or become Robotic.Just means thers a recognised std.
ps,also worth mentioning that with diffrent settings.Spaceing was out.Xould have been unfamiliar settings and kites,but once we had the Leaders set to..........JOB DONE
