Bridle Length for 2008 Best HP 10 mtr

Postby kingmatt » Tue Nov 26, 2013 4:35 pm

Hi guys, can anyone help me out with factory bridle length info as I'm sure mine has stretched and I want to check the lengths of each section. I've seen duagrams for Waroos but nothing for HPs. Please Help!! :???:

Try throwing a PM to SQ or Stacey. They should be able to hook you up, Let me look through old forums real quick too.

Maybe I was wrong -

I found this on another thread in relation to bridle lengths:

DeeTron508 wrote:Hey Matt,

Unfortunately we do not have complete bridle specs; furthermore as Simon mentioned bridles will stretch a little, but usually they end up just snapping at the end of their life span. So checking for signs of fraying or severe wear/tear is more important than actual stretching.

If you are worried about bridle stretch, measure section lengths between both sides. If each bridle has relatively similar measurements (+ or - 2cm), you should be fine. Bridle stretch is normal; think of it like breaking in a pair of shoes. As the canopy material stretches a little, so too do the bridles. This usually does not impact kite performance however, and the general rule is 'if the kite flies well, the bridles are in tune.'

Hope this helps,
D

From the last time i posted on this forum. I was told it was an intellectual property issue.
