DIY?
I'm the worst fumble finger in the world but after some practice, I found tying bridles to be pretty easy and quick. Creating a new or modified bridle is another thing entirely, but making an existing design or replacing a worn out bridle is cake.

Save on postage as well. Have a go...

For your delta drive contact Jon or Marianne Trenephol here http://www.kitesandfunthings.com (http://www.kitesandfunthings.com)  For your Vendetta contact Shawn Tinkham through here http://www.vipersportkites.com/vipersportkites_002.htm. (http://www.vipersportkites.com/vipersportkites_002.htm.)  Shawn isn't currently making the kites but I'm sure he will at least give you the specs for the bridle to make one.

Bridle diagrams are available in the Support section.

If you still have the old bridle, it's fairly easy to duplicate it.
