do some searching on google to fix bladders..

i can tell you that superglue wont work.. tried it.. failed.

there are certain types of glue that adhere to a bladder and hold tight.

most store-bought stuff does not.

if the bladders are beyond fixing, it can be very costly.. might be worth it to pick up a used SLE kite.. will get tons more low end per size of kite.


and unfortunately.. these are not light wind days.. these are NO wind days..

going freakin crazy here.. ugh.

Unhappy

I use the term "lite winds" very loosely...i will look online for an adhesive...TKS for the info. Might have to buy a used kite, didnt really want to- buying a type8 w/ type wave2 bar @ the start of the season. Love my typeZ but i heard the 8 was bad a$$. And yes...everytime i see the leaves on a tree blow...i call the wind report (self-mutilation)@?#*!!!!
