Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I use 90 lb dacron, it is really cheap and comes in black or white. I have some piano wire I use to thread up the line but I reckon an old guitar string would be good. The 300lb line you could back splice loops in and have no knots. Easy peasy job. Look on utube for a diy.
Have a go

Mike

Thanks for the responses. 

I don't think it's needed, but doesn't seem to hurt anything either.
I get pretty rowdy with this kite, so I consider it piece of mind.

Hey Guys,
   I received my new ABS this week and got a chance to try it yesterday. let me say first that at best I am an advanced beginner when it comes to flying Quads. I live inland with very mixed winds so when the winds are 7-10 mph I will go out with a kite. Most of the time it takes everything I got just to keep the kite in the air so I don't (can't) do many tricks. I have flown about 8 different quads a few Revs and some others. OK back to the ABS, all I will say is that if you like to fly quads...you have to try Lam's   It's Awesome!!!

I like to use Bridle Line with the Spectra core pulled out. Get an ultralight high "E" guitar string, fold it in half, crimp it with pliers and use it for a threading tool.

That should work. You can also check out A wind of change on the right here. Kent has stuff. I bought a kit with a thin wire to thread the line through the sleeving from Goodwinds as well.

I need to re-sleeve one of the lines on my Snapshot 2.5.  The line is 300# Spectra, and I'm not sure what sleeving to get or where to get it.  I can't seem to find information on this, and I hate to assume that one sizes fits all.

I was going to order the Prism repair kit, which includes a sleeving kit, but I don't know if that will fit over the 300# line.  Does anybody know if it will work?  I hope so, because Amazon sells it, and I could have it for this coming weekend...

Here's the kit:

I can get the JL but being a newbie it isn't automatic yet.
Jon........It's hard for me to believe you had never done a Jacob's Ladder before we first met a couple week-ends ago.  Huh You caught on quick. Once you show me two rotations of the JL and you earn your first pair of split-finger (ninja's) you'll be in "AUTO" mod for the Jacob's Ladder. They will change the way you fly. You're going to love this trick. Then you can learn to reverse them. I'm still perfecting my reversing JL's. I'm hoping to get you doing the AVFFF on my next trip down. I don't think it will take YOU long to learn it. How's the weather been in "T.O."?  Cheesy
