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.

You are going to have to check around.

It's 170lb. btw.

Laser Pro isn't making bridle line anymore.

Whatever is in stock someplace is it.

This Is A Problem.

If i may suggest a different bridle line,
Liros DSL or Liros PPSL and unsleeved Liros DC
Those are paraglider certifed lines and of a very high quality.

I just got some of each weight from Steve this past Wednesday. He wasn't out of yellow then. I don't know if its Laser Pro bridle line though.  Wink

ahh, well whatever he's selling i like it a lot, especially in yellow. it makes seeing and untangling a tip wrap @ 100' much easier. i love me some leaders. the guys at the park will probably start calling me the leader preacher here soon. heck, i ever gave away a set at kite party to someone flying a talon without them.

i always like using the 100# (that is/was) made by Laser (innovative textiles)......I try to stock up when i can...

if steve does not have any i would imagine that a specifically kite building shop (with initials HeH) out there has some sort of bridle line available...

Good to know that Laser pro is at least making White.

I had heard that they were totally out of the kite line business pretty much.

It would be nice to try some of these others.

Are they available in The States?

It's what I've used on every kite I've built, and I've been happy with it.

I've used Hi Tech but so far as I know they only make black and white and I really like grey bridles. Last year I bought a couple of of those pre-packaged sets from a store that still had a few so I'm set for a little while anyway.

R-Sky has been using some very nice mid-weight bridle line on UL's and SUL's of late and I would love to find some of that in a heavier weight. I've checked with Roger but so far no luck finding any in the States.  Sad

I still consider LP 170# the best ever at that weight.

The last time I talked to Theresa with the Kite Shoppe, she was still able to get line from Laser Pro. She also has variety of lines from Europe.
