The list is completely wrong.
Vegas on 4 lines has no bridle.

Fuel, Hadlow Pro, Diablo, Torch are on 5th line, never seen a Generator.

Thought I read the Hadlo could be rigged 6line?

Generator is 4 line, so is the 09 fuel, Diablo is designed to fly 4 line.

I imagine Lou's kite is 4 line.

There may be a couple of small companies that also have a 4 line C kite but those are the majors.

The vegas on 5 lines has no bridle either....

I think people get confused quite easily. One center line from the bar goes 3/4 of the way up then splits in to two lines, one attaching to the left wingtip, the other attaching to the right wingtip. 5th line (which is really a 4th line) runs straight to the middle of the kite.

I care, especially if information is inaccurate. If you don't care then don't comment!

I got to ride for 5 minutes today, on a swollen & bruised ankle. Took one tack out, on the way back realised it was far to painful to be able to hold my edge and stomp my backfoot to come upwind... so i'll sit here and keyboard kite all i fricken like until it goes down.
