I broke one of my frontlines (all of them are weared out) and I have to fix new ones including FLS endline for my one and only bar: flysurfer infinity 2.0, before I can kite again - and so I have to act now not to miss alot of kiting days.
I've been kititng for 2 years and am between novice and intermediate. I've known how the bar works for a long time but just recently looked closer at all different parts and seen how they work in detail.
I have the ambition to learn about splicing and be able to make my own setups but the cost of lines is making me step back and think before I invest...
Some info about my bar:
My infinity 2 bar is a bit modified with a 4:1 race depower wich have some line extensions for the steeringlines and for the FLS endline - to fit the race depower in there. This was made by the owner before me.
Whith my setup the FLS Endline has been somewhat slacking as the picture shows.
Maybe this is not how it's meant to be with the original fs setup? Anyway it worked for a long time like that.
So my questions are:
To learn something and to save some money:
Is it a good choice to buy cheaper lines and splice my own ends/loops?
I need to make a connection for an FLS endline in the middle of a normal liros line.(make my own frontline that would work like flysurfers original) plus then make my own FLS Endline somehow.
Any tips on how to do this?
The brummel splice that is shown here by Gunnar B: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fo5lgO-DUk4
Would the splices work just as fine as those coming with original prespliced lines you can buy? Is it the exact same technique?
Is the brummel lock not the only part that is holding the splice? why does it help to have a long end of a line inside the other, i menan as fast as the brummel lock is teared the rest is just sliding out right?
Or would you recommend to just stick with the original lines?

Im happy for any Advice or knowledge you have
