At present, I only have Power Sled type kites (3). Two are Boston Big Game Fishing club kites ( BBG on fishing websites) and one Premier PS 14. The 14 is just a fuzz larger than the others.
I have only had one "learning opportunity/failure" so far. One of the BBG kites had a spar work it's way through the stitching on the seam of it's sleeve. It made for an exciting series of tight loops to the side of the collapse followed by an impressive piledriver to ground. I was able to fish it back into the sleeve but it quickly found it's way out again.There is a nice end cap over the slender fiberglass(?) rod. I was thinking of possibly piggybacking progressively larger caps over the existing cap to fatten it up a bit before sewing the seam tighter? Maybe some type of webbing over the sleeve ends?
Right now I have no repair kit and it has become evident that needs to change.
¿Suggestions from veteran Power Sledders out there?
