"...you can make a 10m leader of 12 strand.."

Why didn't I think of that when I was toiling away at that splice!? I think that's the way forward - cheers. :thumb:

Re: Splicing Flexifoil Lines

Glad it's not just me then! :lol: I was determined to get one done so I could get the sliding safety working. If not for that I would have given up a lot sooner. I now have a nagging suspicion I've weakened the most important line! It'll be fine for the coming season at least - I'll address it next ...

Splicing Flexifoil Lines

I've got a new - old stock - Flexifoil Hadlow bar but the safety is useless so converting to Ozone type. The Flexi lines are a nightmare though - they are some weird weave that doesn't open up enough. I managed to get the critical front sliding line spliced but probably compromised it a bit with the...

Re: How can I attach a stopperball in front line?

Thanks for that - was just curious how they've done it. I kite solo in some pretty remote places so ideally want something that might have a fighting chance to re-ride if it all goes wrong - hence the stopper. Coming from years of 5 line safety but determined to ditch it. It's refreshing to see how ...

Re: How can I attach a stopperball in front line?

You can also use Ozone's method: double overhand knot in a separate piece of line where you put the power line through and then bury the loose ends in the power line. Is this for the front line flag stopper ball half way up the front line? I'm trying to find an image of how Ozone attach their stopp...
