How To Sleeve Your Flying Lines
Most performance stunt kites will come with a set for quality low stretch flying lines. You will see that they have a sleeveing sheath over the ends. The reason for this is that if you were to just tie a knot in the flying line itself it will end up weakening the line, so it is protected by the polyester sheath. This video shows how to re sleeve your flying lines, this may be because they have stretched slightly or have broken. (If you do not have sleeving on the lines of the kite you have just bought, don't worry it is a type of line that does not need to be sleeved) Sleeving kits are available

If you need to make a new knot in the end of your flying line take a look at this tutorial from Close Encounters Kites.
