Found the winder:

That's the one! I think that mine is still in the house somewhere. There is a box with lots of line sets for single, dual and quad kites <grins>

Even with the standard winders from lpg you gotta be careful sitting down. I've torn the corner of my pocket a few times. But it only tears the thread so it just sews back on and off to the beach we go again.... ;) I do like and prefer the smaller winders. Granted bigger is easier to wind onto but smaller means carrying more linesets in the same space in the bag. Gotta have something for every occasion!

I can only imagine carrying a 24" winder in my pocket while flying.

Try the green plus down in the lower right corner of the message. It is called "Vote this post up" and is somewhat similar to "like".

Yes, I am a regular user. Sorry I didn't expect my earlier post to be taken quite so literally, just my weird British sense of humour (English spelling) I guess.

Isn't the 24 inch winder called "a splint"?
