Line weight for EXP
Posted 10 August 2007 - 09:33 AM
I have just bought an EXP to learn four line kite flying. It didn't come with lines, but I already have a set which have a 150 pound breaking strain, 30 metres long (Dyneema)
Would these be OK for the EXP is what I would like to know?

If you get a decent wind they will be fine as Watty says.

If you ever get the chance to pick up some 90 pound spectra (either Shanti or Laser Pro) I would defiantly not hesitate.
Seeing as they are Dyneema lines my main concern would be that they are all the same length, I've used those before and they have a tendency to stretch.
loop all 4 lines on a stake on the other end use another stake or a screw driver loop those on and pull them tight look for tight and or slack lines, you can stretch out the tighter lines to match the others, if you have one longer than the rest try tying a extra knot on the loop.
