Hi

I have a 'pre-owned' Rev 1 and I am sure that the bridle has been modified or repaired, it looks different to my Rev 1.5 and Rev 2. Does anyone have a bridle map for the Rev 1, there seems to be a whole bunch on the net for the 1.5 but nothing for the 1? Alternatively, if all is wrong any idea of a good source for a new bridle? I bought the last one (for a 1.5) from Bristol Kite fest but too long to wait and I can't remember who I got it from - doh.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Clive

Early REV I's had a bit of a different bridle then present day REV I's. They required having different length flying lines for the upper and lower lines.
Best bet is to get a new one for roughly $10.00 in the USA.
For the UK at previously mentioned, try Kiteworld.
For the USA there are a number of kite shops stocking them. Check around on this forum, you will find some of them active in this forum.

Or for accuracy's sake, you might consider ordering a Rev I bridle directly from Rev... It'd be easy enough to duplicate from there.

Indeed, I should amend my statement... Rev bridles are available from your local pro shops as well. ;)

Support your retailers!

Thanks everyone, look like a new bridle is the sensible option. I'll try Kiteworld first, as postage is going to be the biggest cost from the US given how surprisingly inexpensive the bridle is.

All the best

Seeing that you are in the UK, Kiteworld would be an excellent choice.

I finally ordered my ultra light bridle for the Rev 1 and it came in last night. I just installed it and it looks and feels great. I can't wait to try it. Forecast is for very light wind all weekend so things are looking good for a tryout.

Hi,
Thought I'd just refresh this topic on birdles...in general.

Third flight with my Sedgwick. While attaching the flying lines, I just realized the lower portion of the bridle (knot for attaching brake line) do not match up between the left and right side. Pulled out my measuring tape and found the difference to be 2cm (left 23cm vs right 21cm) between the lower end caps to the bottom overhand knot. As a result of this, the rest of the bridle is also a little wacko.


Can someone point to me which is the right dimension? I've just balanced it to 21cm on both sides till I fly again tmrw.

Thks in advanced!
Clin
