I am adding a few images to show how a 1.5  bridle is fitted to compliment  Watty,s excellent

video on "Bridle Replacement" !

 

Don,t forget, vertical behind horizontal.

 

You should be able to print copies if you require to !

 

Please add more/better images if you have them.

 

Hopefully a picture is worth a thousand words!

 

This is my old EXP with rods fitted.

Great, sure could have used this yesterday. Had a new SLE that the bridle came from the factory buggered up on the right lower side.  Went crazy trying to figure out how it was supposed to look, since both sides were different.The guys  at Kitelife forum help me sort it out. These pictures should be pinned.

Great images, very concise information. My first Rev did not have the bridle completely attached & I figured it out while on the beach a few Decembers ago. Makes me realize I should go check the kite now to see if I got it right back in the day. But didn't I have the Dark Side guiding me?

early flight,second ever Rev session - expecting to crash but the SLE is tough. Just noticed I had already made knotted leaders.
