  1. I'm still in the learning stage so any wind I can get is better than none at all. And yea, I did adjust the 4th line to make them all match. From what I've read, a lot of people prefer a shorter line set and I think I will be one of them. I'm about to skip out on my lunch break from work and see how these do.
  2. Just got through making this Line set and I think I did pretty good considering it was my first. Only had 1 line shorter than the other 3. Others all matched. Now I can't wait to get out and fly on em. Of course the one evening I really want to fly.... Now wind at all. So hopefully tomorrow will be good. Thanks for the input guys and I'll keep you posted.
  3. Its the stock line that came with the kite as a package so I'm guessing it is Modulus line. Have my 85ft set theat came with my EXP - just wanted (and needed) a shorter set. And I do fly alone as there is really no1 else I know who has a REV. Thanks guys
  4. Hey guys, I'm wanting to make a 30ft line set for my EXP but funds are too tight to purchase at the moment. I have a Prism Nexus kite laying around that came with 90# x 65' of spectra line that doesn't get used anymore. Can I cut that set down to make a 30ft set for my REV? Didn't know how good that brand would do as a quad set so I figured I would rely on some expert opinions on this. Has anyone tried it? Would it be better to just hold off until I can get a laser pro set? Thanx
  5. Quick question... Got this leader line in today and before I started I had the thought of if I needed to sleeve it or if it would be fine as is. Stupid newbie question I know, bit I'd rather ask. Thanks
  6. Thanks for the input. Found the video for the no snag handle mod and I must say that's a good trick. Probly be doing this also soon. Couldn't change my order on the lime so I'm going to stay with the 100 and just double it up to be sure. I think I am going to just do the top leaders to start and leave the bottoms for now. Will see how this works out and go from there.
  7. I will try. Any other suggestions on line for the pigtails?
  8. They had 100# and 170# to choose from, guess i should have asked first. Should I try to get the 170 instead of the 100?
  9. 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?
  10. Hi guys, I'm looking to make a set of leaders to try on my EXP and was wondering where you can purchase the line? Looked around but can't seem to find it. Thanks
