While flying today, I had a kid come up to me with a tale of woe. Several years ago an Aunt had given him a NTK Firecracker.... his parents scratched their head when they saw the bridle and cut it off and attached a single line to the upper spreader... he now realizes it was meant to be a dual line kite. If anyone has the bridle dimensions for this kite, I will tie him a new one.

or if anyone has a similar beginner kite, I would pass it on to him.

I have a NTK Firecracker, my first kite!

If you e-mail me about it there is a 99% chance I won't forget to measure the bridle for you! (Assuming I can actually find it!)

Sorry, no metric in my house, all inches Grin

16 7/8" upper spreader to knot
17 1/2" lower spreader to knot
20 3/8" center T to knot

Apologize in advance for not knowing the proper bridle terms

Question?

Are these measurements taken with the bridle attached to the kite or removed from the kite?

My database wants to know

I can work with that... thank you!

I will assume it is a 3 point bridle
