The Full Speed 3 Bridal set is "heavily damaged" $429.95 + $400 to install them :cry:
so I'm still thinking if there is any way around that high cost :?:
For next time which hopefully does not come it would cheaper and less work to cut LCLs (if necessary and possible ofcourse).

Its too bad I didnt take a picture, but last year my buddy asked me to take his 13m Ozone to a kite repairman who's a friend of mine. All he needed was a 6cm (2 inches) repair.

I strapped the kite to the back of my motorcycle and after 30 minutes of riding, I noticed it had slid to the side of the bike. The tire had burned through the bag and half the kite! It had 12 new holes that needed to be patched and two tubes that needed to be replaced!
