I was hopeing some kind sole could point me in the direction of some GOOD QUALITY DACRON[i think its dacron Black Bridle line.I wana strip the core from it and use the outer as fine sleeveing.Weight around 100lb-150lb would be just the ticket.
Ive used Tim Bensons line in the past,but want a full roll now and Tim didnt have much when i e mailed him.

Thanks Gang

Hi Bri,

I've got 130 lb Black Dacron. It's what we make our handle leader lines from. Do you like this ?
Black is no problem.
Be careful, this stuff can bleed.

Just wondering if it might be worth letting you kill me just to find out :lol:

If you can not get it this side of the pond Bri I know T at Thekiteshoppe should be able to help you out. I have got a few deliveries from her. Once you strip it out it fits 90lpg just fine.

I think it is 100lb LPG bridle line. Good stuff.

There is/was a kite shop in Hamburg called Luftpirat that has/had some really thin good dacron sleeving. It came in at least four color variations which is prefect for Revolutions using 90/100lbs(40Kg) lines,
The owner Raimund Dorow speaks absolutely perfect English, more towards the Queens English.
Address is:
Luftpirat
Achtern Felln 21
25474 Hasloh
Telephone:
(0 41 06) 62 74 72

I make no guarantees he still exist in business. All I can suggest is try calling the telephone number.
Attached is a photo showing the sleeving on 40Kg Shanti lines.
What I do is to use the orange/red line for the left(port) hand and the yellow/lime/green line to the right(starboard) hand. Then I have the lighter lines on top and the darker on the bottom. I have my handles setup with the same sleeving for the pigtails.

Craigs who runs the shop on FA is kewl ,spent quite a few quid with him a while ago.Seems like a Top fella.

The Bridle line your correct on.Its the same as Tim Bensons stuff.I think it actually boasts that fact

I want alot of it though.They tend to supply smaller amounts.A bridles worth at a time realy.


Thanks pal
Have a goodn
