You won't find stains on any of these and here's a picture to prove it. No, they're not Boas, they're better. Of course, I'm just a little biased. The four-knot equalizers provide fast in-field line-equalization and finger tip line control. These are now on the way to A Wind of Change. If you purchase a pair of these and they fail, just send them back to me,  NOT (A Wind of Change) and I'll replace them with a new pair. That's MY guarantee.


Norm's Custom hand-made Finger and Wrist Straps are made using a premium Rock Climbing or Military specification tubular nylon webbing. The webbing is hot cut and then sewn together using a high strength upholstery thread and finished with a piece of flat black nylon webbing. The flight straps have a four knot line-equalizer added for fast in-the-field line-equalization. The straps are soft and have a very comfortable feel in your hands. Made in the USA using the best materials available. These flight straps are built to last a life time. If they become soiled, just wash them in warm water using a mild liquid soap, thoroughly rinse and let dry.

I guess you can consider the quotes below a review of sort for all of the new fliers who are unfamiliar with my straps. If you are considering purchasing a pair of these, you'd better get them now as I will not be making anymore.

Norm's straps are the bomb...  Grin

The two-finger straps provide excellent line control, and the material of the 'Norm Straps' just makes them a joy to hold compared to the hard, scratchy material of most straps. Good straps, good line, and a good kite. It's all important !

Also I use "Norm's Flight Straps"(aval. at Jon T's)..actually Jon,Devin,Mike,Dave,Joe all fly Norm's Straps.  Ask Jon T love's em'...

Also ask about Norm's Flight Straps... It will improve your flying.

Norm makes the best straps I've ever used !

Thanks Norm, I love your wrist straps.

Just goes to show what you can do with those "custom straps"...


Some things in Life are just Good.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Like Norm's flying straps...

Norm made me a believer a long time ago... It started with his Flight Straps ... That started me changing and getting better... This whole thread is worth re-reading... Simple I ditto everything said...
Contact Jon T and ask him what he thinks of Norm's Straps.  Then hope he has some for sale....  Check web site...

I'll +3 on Norm's straps, they are as sweet as it gets.


I agree.  Norm's finger straps look cool as hell and work even better!

Norm's straps are f'ing awesome.  Cheesy

I CAN NOT believe what they're charging for those straps, I would pay 3X that. The straps are that good. I'm going to have to chase down some wrist straps for my standard kites. The finger straps are EXCELLENT for light wind flying, I've mothballed all my other light wind straps and only use the Norm Straps !


I have not seen the pricing on these RobB but I agree with you, they are the best straps I've ever had and considering that, I would pay more to get a pair of these. Norm does make a mean set of straps!! 
 I just started using mine and they are replacing all of my older straps!! Hence my question about the wrist straps.

Re: AVFFF "Trick Challenge" Now CLOSED
Yea !! Like everyone can paint like Picaso      ... You guys don't get it.      Norm is a "Master".      You don't try,attempt,duplicate,the Master.     You only bear witness in Aaahhhhhh.       Then beg the Master as I have for a pair or win em'      ... copyright,copyright,copyright.       

THis is all do to Norm's Flight Straps.  I seriously mean that.  When I started to feel the lines EVERYTHING changed.

Thanks for the props Steve.  To order a pair or two, just give us a call or e-mail Daelyn at customerservice@awindofchange.com and we can get you taken care of.  The pictures of the straps are above and they are first come, first serve.  We normally don't put these up on our website because they sell out so fast.  I have been using these straps myself for over 2 years now and love them.  Great looking, feel wonderful against the skin and are very comfy.

So, for those in the market for a pair, you had better get them now from AWOC while he has a good supply, because I am not making anymore flight straps.

Now where have I heard that before?   Wink

Way to go Rob !! You  completed the AVFFF flying the (Green) Solus ďfog kiteĒ. Nice job. The AVFFF seemed to be the most popular of the challenges. I saw one VF entry where the AVFFF was about the only trick the flier did for his one minute video. Rob: You have always been a huge asset to this forum and promoted kiting every chance you got. You are one of the most helpful fliers in here. I canít believe a new flier hasnít popped his head up somewhere in your local area. Sooner or later one will and he will be the luckiest newbie there will ever be to meet and learn flying skills and tricks from you. Sorry if this makes you feel uncomfortable, just the way I see it. At the end of your video you said:  of course Normís straps were used for this. I should hope so, I donít know how you could fly as good as you did without them.  Wink Glad you like my straps.

Well, I meant it when I said they were the best straps that I've used. I've had a few new kiters here, but with the winds around here this year, I was teaching them to fly on four lines.  Embarrassed
