Which launch tool should I use?
The Time Manager and Turbolauncher both eliminate line tangles while making launching fast and simple. The Turbolauncher has the added benefit of allowing you to launch without a beach – from the shore, while drifting in the water or from a boat.
The Time Manager eliminates untangling lines and saves time by only walking the length of your lines one time!
How It Works
Loading: When you come in from a session, snap the lines into the Time Manager in the order that they attach to the kite, detach the lines from the kite and wind up your lines.
Launching: Simply attach lines to the kite in the order that you snapped them into the Time Manager, detach the Time manager and put it in your pocket, unwind your lines, notice that your lines are set up perfectly, launch and ride!
Advantages: You no longer need to lay out your lines, walk back up your lines to the kite while fighting tangles, hook up your lines with the possibility of crossing lines, then walk back to your bar again. That’s walking back and forth 2 times more than with the Time Manager. Plus, you don’t have to fight tangles any more!
The Turbo Launcher does everything that the Time Manager does, but it also allows you to let out your lines with the kite attached so that you can launch in areas where you can’t lay out the entire length of your lines. It is designed specifically for launching in the water where there isn’t a large beach or from a boat.
How It Works:
Loading: When you come in from a session, wind your lines onto the Turbolauncher, snap the lines into the slots in the order that they attach to the kite and detach the lines from the kite.
Launching: Simply attach lines to the kite in the order that you snapped them into the Turbolauncher, let the kite drift downwind while your lines spool off, when the lines come tight, launch and ride!
Advantages: You can launch in the water where there isn’t a large beach or from a boat. It also eliminates tangles and crossed lines.
