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.

Unless its chopped to pieces, bridle line can be reused. I would suggest that you "push on through" & keep trying. Down the road you'll be glad you did. My first was one of those cross active Gem bridles & the RTG is much, much easier comparatively so long as you learn how to tie the knots.

I know a thing or two about this particular bridle so pm or email me your issues & we'll see if we can work them out.

Don't know if you have seen this http://wardley.org/kites/bridle/index.html?

I've found the sections on Bridle construction and bridle knots very useful in the past.

Best investment I ever made for bridle tying:

A board with a couple of nails in it.  You can mess with one piece of the bridle until its right, then make another just like it.



Definitely try again. Even if you never make a whole bridle ever again (most people don't) you will be comfortable repairing or modifying a bridle (much more common).

Be sure to keep the original bridle on the kite until you've got the new one tweaked. It's easy to switch back and forth and see what the new one does different. Having the extra bridle flapping around as you fly is OK for testing.
