In Topic: Prism Line OK?

I wouldn't be too concerned about quality on a 30ft line set as you are likely to be flying alone and you won't be racking up too many wraps and line stretch is not going to be a big issue. But I wouldn't recommend skimping on longer line set, especially if you are likely to be flying with others as cheap line will cut quality line like a knife through butter if you get locked up.

Thanks, I really enjoyed that, Ben. Especially the stuff from Bristol 2008, that wasa great weekend and would have been even better if we had had good wind.

I've been looking for a link to Watty's video and can't find it, but I have found this, I posted it way back.

Thanx, just ordered 10ft of 100# bridle line. First attempt of making these so I'll be sure to try to leave plenty extra. Had a thought on the stock handles... Could you snip the rings off the handles and just knot the leaders straight into the holes for less snags?

Yes, the plug and screw method works fine, check out Watty's YouTube channel he's done a good tutorial. The only thing I will say is if you have been flying Revs for a while do the break line leaders, but leave the top leaders alone, they don't needed doing and I found that the slightly altered anchor point messed with my grip.
