For Christmas this year, my parents bought me a Gomberg Skyform 60 along with a matching 50' tail. I've been wanting a real lifter for a while, and am excited to finally have one. It showed up in the mail today, and after unpacking it, I've got a few questions...
1) The bridle seems to be daisy chained to make it much shorter. I assume you undo all of that so each line is as long as possible? Do you daisy chain it up each time to keep the bridle from getting tangled? Any tips or advice on this bridle in general? It already has a bit of a bird's nest going, and all I've done is unpack it!
2) The matching tail is 5' wide, whereas the kite is 6.75' wide. Is it OK for the "tails" of the kite to be slightly pinched together by the tail? Since David helped pick out this kite/tail combo, I'm assuming it is no problem.
3) All of the vents are hot cut only, no hems. Did anyone take the time to go through and glue the edges of the hot cut vents to keep them from fraying, or is that pointless overkill?
4) Was anyone else surprised by just how darn big a 60 sq ft kite is?
