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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

If you can't find the original dimensions there's a rough rule of thumb for making turbo and static bridles here
http://www.iannewham.com/kitedesign/bridling.html
Its only a starting point but should get you in the air.


Have a read of Andy Wardley's site too.

Thanks everyone who helped. I managed to get a bridle for the kite from this site

-Sorry, links to other shops are not allowed-rb

Very interesting for those who lost bridles and measurements.

Hi,

you could find some specifications here:

choose your model and find all kite's dimensions.

If you want you could add kite specs.

have a good day

Se my internetsite below... in the photobox "Kitebag and Kitespecs" there are some:
- technical pages of the DeepSpace, Gemini STD (with differend Active bridle), UL, Jumping Jack Flash VTD, Strong, STD, Special Edition, UL, SUL, Transfer XT.r, Lynx Pilot, Lowind 230

- lots of kite related knots in the photobox  "Vliegers veel gebruikte knopen"
