Kite repair - PKD Buster 4m

wldkrd1 - 9-11-2019 at 05:01 PM

Hey all,

I picked up a Buster 4m on ebay, seller claimed that a couple bridle lines had come untied, no biggie. Also that things were a little tangled, but everything's a-ok.

Yup, the bridle appears to be a mess, also one of the bridle lines is snapped and one of the bridle attachment loops is ripped in half. Looks like it took a hard left turn.

Kite appears crispy otherwise, so besides the fact that this kite and lines are ~16 years old, I think it shouldn't be too tough to get it back in flying order. Might be beyond my skillset to fix it safely, though. Any recommendations for a kite repair shop?

John at http://www.powerzonekitesports.com/ also does excellent work though I haven't seen him active on this forum for a long time so I'm not sure if he is still engaged or not.

I've had several kites repaired by Fixmykite.com. Excellent work, great communication, and fair pricing. I would highly recommend them.

Thanks everyone! I've requested quotes/info from both, so we'll see how it goes.

I went with FixMyKite.com. Great communication, quick turnaround, reasonable price, repair job looks great and they sorted the bridles. I finally got it in the air over the weekend, no complaints.

Great feedback. I have had them save about a half dozen kites from premature death over the years with equally positive results. Great that this outfit continues to service the power kite community.
