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".

Add the line between f & g

make sure it is loose enough so it does not pull either the inhaul or outhaul (the picture is a little misleading).

Rx is right on the money.  That is just how my Nirvana is done and it works great.

Do you have measurements for that bridle?

I got a second hand Nirvana that I think had the original bridle, but I've seen different setups being used. I have been trying a few different things, for now I have settled on the 3-point bridle. What seems to be the favoured setup for most people?

Roy Reed has several Nirvana bridles with specs and illustrations. Here is a link:

I use a Debray reverse turbo on mine.
