Color code with a marker pen.

Funny you should say this Jim....

....making sure you colour code the correct line in the process :blush:
Accidentally marked up the wrong line after making up a spare set of 120 footers yesterday.

Would have taken a series of photos whilst guitar-stringing the splicer-doobies in the field if I'd known ;)

Glad I didn't wait to do it today on a packed beach on the south coast....
where a guy in a black Brabus Smart totally checked me..... out

Walking out a new set of lines today I did go back to the stake and pick up 'one pair' in order to check that they had been correctly paired on the spool. They had, and the self tied knotted brake leaders worked 'a treat' (perfectly) on the very long handles. Beginners luck <grins>

I have a se that I bought a while ago.

They have the leader colours all mixed up. If you connect them as the colour suggests you end up with correct lines on one handle and reversed lines on the other.

Makes for an interesting flying experience. Keep meaning to put them right. Dont use them now as I have plenty of LPG lines.

Might give them away to someone I like. I am fairly sure there is some purple on the leaders, now who might I give those to?

Broke a line set today though, so I guess they will end up adjusted :(


Hah! So you stole all the wind yesterday! If you'd shared it around more, you wouldn't have snapped a line... ;)

He was having a good attempt at breaking my lines at the time so justice was served ;)
