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.

The I2Ks I have flown have had an amazing (and not in a good way)

variety of handling characteristics. There have been those I've loved,

and my kite, whose bridle I hated so much, a new one was created.

You may as well take a shot at one yourself and experiment.

Just my opinion.

Here was my attempt. I liked it better than the bridle it came with,

but not as much as other I2K's stock bridle.

Here's a thread from the Prism forum that mentions some bridle specs for the I2K.

I've never changed mine, just flew it the way it came...

Gardner, the guy who gave me the specs on the Prism site, checks in here from time to time. He's a big I2K fan, I'm sure your post will catch his eye.
I will say that I've found a new interest in my I2K since I've been flying it with the Spoilerz. It's amazing how precise a curved LE kite can be, how big of a side slide it can do, and it tip stabs like crazy.
Good luck getting yours flying as you like it.

There were at least 3 "fixes" released for the I2K and I think 2 of those had new bridles. To be honest that kite frustrated me so much I gave up.  If you are interested Chester I may have a later version of the bridle laying around.  I will check tomorrow and if I have one it is yours for the postage

Sweet! Thanks Steve.  I was digging everywhere for since measurements because the light wind, and strong and tags came off and my pig talks are out of place. . The in haul lines are off as well and I don't know what side to adjust it to. Hah, I might even take Chilese's suggestion and create my own
