The 2 lower lines are a special contruction. They allow a variable seamedge tension.

New picture from last weekend on a german kite festival. Hope you like the picture.
My daily Highlight was my Pure 3XL on 330ft. Lines :-)
You can't imagine how awesome a axle with 5.6m kite looks like

Anyone know costs on these ?

I think shipping costs should be too much. Pack size is 2 metres!!!
The price for the 3XL is 759 (plus shipping) but there are only candy colours left because Carrington won't be produced any more.

How different would the construction of one of these monsters be from a 'standard' duallie?  Could you just scale up the plans for an existing kite (and beef up the framing, of course) and have a decent flier, or would it require so much tweaking that it'd basically be a whole new kite?

As for importing...  I wonder if you'd be able to swing a deal to have one shipped without the framing?  Pack the sail/bridle/fittings in a small box to save a ton on shipping, then source the framing from someone more local.

I don't think that Michael Ryll is shipping a sail without framing. He builds perfect kites but only complete ones so that he can give you the guarantee that it really is perfect. Maybe you send him an email ( drachen@ryll.de ) to clear it out with himself.
