Can someone tell me the size of the bridle line on the SDL, as i wish to lengthen it, or should i be using something different. And, will changing the lower spreaders to 3pt affect it's performance for lighter wind days ?         :' (  Sad  Sorry,  i meant  ---to lengthen the leader line, not the bridle.

I don't kknow why you would want to lengthen the bridle. If you are just adding longer leader lines, just about anything will do. The difference using 3pt spreaders you will probably never feel, but it would be a bit stronger.

Lam told me that you can go up or down one size for the lower spreaders on his kites.  My Fearless Light came with 5s for the lower spreaders which I just keep in there as it goes very low already in this configuration.

I would like to try the 3pts on the SUL when the wind picks up - I know he flys his SUL in what I would consider pretty high wind for an SUL with them in.

I also tried lengthening the leaders but did not like it on the SUL and Light in light wind, so I took them off.  The leader is long enough already to cover rolling once which is good enough for me.  If I do rollup mult. times, its usually only in very light wind, so I just don't worry about it.
