50m tape measure.


I wonder how long some of my line sets are?

I've seen one, but never so cheap. Quality is okay.
US pricing is much higher than in Canada.


Beauty Ehh?

I would need 2 of these to measure a few of my line sets.

Flexboardz. Blokarts.
PKD Century Soulflys. NPW's. Nasa Stars.
A few other less flown oddballs,
Line sets from 10" to 328" or 2m to 100m.
worlds only AQR that works.
North American distributor for PKD.

I found another way to do it. I lay lines out then walk one foot right in front of the other (toe to heel) and count the steps. Multiply by 11 (my foot inches) and divide by 12. What could be more accurate than my foot?

So here's a picture of Randy measuring a new Custom Big Kid lineset. Once you get over 210' handles are way too sluggish. I think he emails the instructions to the wing?



I'm gonna try it on the ground first Randy. I haven't tried walking heel to toe since that Policeman told me I had to :lol:

They say if you practice heel to toe regularly you will do better in a "test" situation.
