SO true!!

The visual appearance of unequal lines while still on the winder is common! While winding the lines there is always 'overlap' and that causes them to look uneven!

Efin.....Glad to hear all is good!

I watched JB's line management tutorial, but it's escaping my memory at the moment. Does it matter which line is larks headed to which or does it matter as long as the pair is knotted to each other?

Hmmm I'm wondering.... When I've bought pre-made linesets I'm the past, the lines have come attached to each other with a larks head, making it appear one end is longer than the other until the lines have been completely removed from the winder and stretched out.

efiniluvr, did you completely undo the lines from the winder when you checked them, or did you just undo one end from the winder for a quick check?

Chaulk one up for a newbie mistake, when I initially checked, I did not "untwist" all the wraps. Like SkyPuppet alluded to, the lines were larkheaded together, giving me the illusion of unequal length lines. After laying out the lines and separating the top from the bottom lines, ALL IS GOOD. The lesson is learned. Now, I'm ready to take it out for a "spin".

Thanks Theresa and SkyPuppet!!

I finally got the chance to take a look at my new purchase yesterday. I noticed the LPG lineset 80 x 90# are of different length. Specifically the top lines are much longer than the bottom lines. I understand the importance of line equalization; tops being the same length, bottom being the same. And i''ve also read that the tops can be up 7in longer than the bottom. So for a newbie like myself, do I need to make all four lines the same length or just compensate by attaching the top lines on different leads?

Thanks

Update:
It looks like black fabric is out for at least 3 weeks from Revolution....so my first choice of BLACK/BLUE was out of stock. Neither was my second choice, GREY/BLUE (maybe blue fabric is also out of stock), so I'm settling on my third choice, GREY/RED. Maybe it's due to all of you ordering the B-Pro's and Zen's that's causing the fabric shortagePosted Image Posted Image

Excited is beyond describing my mood as the kite makes its way from AWOC in NV, well at least it's not flying here.... yet. It should arrive Saturday, at which point, I'll be home watching the DVD and some more tutorial from JB on youtube before the maiden flight.

Thanks for all the great advices, you definitely roll out the welcome mat!! I guess I wasn't explicite with what I purchased. I purchased a B 1.5 full sail with the 3 wrap and a race frame. I know the vented is not too far down the line eventually.
