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".

I located mine and took some pictures, and took some measurements

this is what I came up with:

The bridle has quite a bit of adjustment ability

here is what I came up with

Upper Leading edge to center T:

50" from end to end
6.5" loop at LE end
5.5"loop at cener T

measureing from LE end

24" to center of RED mark
22.5" to center of BLACK mark

Lower LE to bridle:

29" from knot to knot (inside)
3.5" pigtail on LE end
6.5" pigtail for line connection

hope this helps

First thing that I did when I took my new NSR out of the bag back in 1991, was to mark the factory positions with blue Marks a lot.  I have seldom made an adjustment from these factory settings since.   Mine has the wrapped Easton spars as well.  The very early NSR's had two spines, light wind and heavy wind.  Very tough to replace these spars today.   I love my NSR, it is one of my favorite kites.

Enjoy!
