I'm still pretty new to kiting. I have limited (very limited) experience with inflatables. I have been flying a foil kite (9m Slingshot Ranger) for snowkiting, and usually leave my lines attached to the kite. It makes setup a lot quicker, and I haven't had any trouble with tangled lines or launching. I've never seen anybody leave their lines attached to an inflatable, and wondered why not? It would sure eliminate improper connections and might speed up the setup. I don't want to try it without checking with the "pros". I hate learning from my own painful mistakes when I could learn from somebody else's pain instead. So what's the consensus--good idea or bad idea?
