Does anyone have experience of converting a 'Symphony' 2.7m to 4 lines ??

Cheers

I have a 3.3 which I have converted to a 4 line kite. As far as I am aware the 2.7 is not intended to be able to be converted to a 4 line kite. The 3.3 is easily converted using a simple kit supplied by HQ costing only a few pounds which attatches to the tail of the kite and then to a pair of break lines. Using a pair of quad handles it is then possible to fly the kite on four lines.
I may be wrong however and the kite may be convertable to four lines in which case I recomend you do it.
Using 4 lines gives much more manoeuvrability and better control.

Cheers for the info.

Do you know of a HQ website where I can look into the kit you used ??

I've also converted my 3.3 for quad lines, the kit cost around 6 from here.. Its at the bottom.

I've since taken the kit back off the kite as its way more fun with just the two lines... Seemed to always fall to the side no matter how much you fiddled with the lines...
Only works on the newer 3.3 and 4.1 version that have the knots on the trailing edge..
And unless you want to read loads on breast feeding equipment and the sort don't type "symphony conversion kit" into google...

my 3.3 was one of the older ones as well but I can't say I had any probs with 4 lines.
