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.

yeh it only works if you have enough handles. i have many line sets and only a handful of handles that i use.  So if you starting off and have 1 or 2 sets it deff works.

Just to add to the mix...

Revolution Tutorial - Line Management (quad line stunt kite)


End of the day, it's ALL about whatever works for YOU.

Takes me about 3 minutes to set up or break down using the technique in the video...
Far as I'm concerned, no way, no how should it take someone more than 10 minutes.

Why? That's good flying time, why waste time on gear? Smiley

or use 4 winders and never, ever have a problem!  Cheesy


unless you lose a winder!  Grin


4 winders?? I'm tired just reading that!! Huh I used to wind one pair at a time, with both pairs on 1 winder, but after John kidded with me about doing it that way, I tried his method!! Haven't had any issues since!! Grin Setup and take down just take minutes now and I'm up and flying - fast!! Secret though is - do it the same way - everytime!! Once you find something that works for you - duplicate it all the time!! Wink

I use 2 winders for quad lines, and have for a couple of months. never ever  a tangle, or a twist, takes about an extra minute to wind and unwind, and no adventure once the lines are hooked up. I just launch and fly. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, is my motto.

I'm a handle winder. No winders to lose and it's quick and easy once you get the system to it.
The drawback is if you don't pay attention to the winding and unwinding, the whole wrap comes off in a huge, tangled snarl. You also need a dedicated pair of handles for each line set.

I tried handle winding a couple of times, but if you let is sit for too long, the handles get all sorts of line marks in the foam and deteriorate faster.

I get the line marks too, particularly where I tuck the pigtails in between the handles, but I've had this set for quite a while and there is no deterioration in the foam.
