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".

If you click on the linked photo below, then click on the magnifying glass under the picture, you will see an enlarged version of an original JS Luna Moth UL. It has a simple, 3-point bridle.

You can easily make a bridle like this with pigtail adjustments at each of the 6 connections. Then, just experiment.

For a start, use a ratio for one of your kites which also has the same type bridle.

Or I could dig mine out of the bag and take some measurements, which would be easier?

I think the second one, is the one that sneaked past me. Thanks for the heads up ! Will try that immediately.

And thanks Mr Chilese, I have studied the pics. Lazy me just hoped that someone had a Moth handy, and could measure it for me.

Well, Thank you Mr KiteKing, that was a mighty generous offer. If you would do that for me, it would definately spare me many hours of trial and error. If you donīt feel like spending time on doing it, that is completely understandable, and there will be no hard feelings on my part.

Thank you all, you are a great !

Even if you do get the stock measurements for the bridle, that doesn't mean the bridle will be adjusted to how you like a kite to fly.

Whatever bridle and lengths you put on, please put in the ability to do some minor adjustments.

Good advice, thank you (again), and it will be followed.

Hmmm.... If I copy the bridle from my Talon UL, maybe the Moth will fly like the.....
