Line Winding

Do your kite lines look like this?

If so, here's an idea to help!

The problem with winding the lines round your handles is that it takes quite a long time, and the more winds the more chance for tangles.

We recently discovered these natty devices which came with the handles on a kite we bought second hand on ebay.

They're called Radsail Quad Power Line Handles and they have two clever little U shaped caps that fit onto the ends of the handles and have a groove in them for winding the line round - you only need about 30 winds for 25m line - much quicker and easier.

Unfortunately we haven't been able to buy the end caps on their own - if anyone's got any bright ideas for making something similar please post on the Kite Forum - we'd like a set too!
