I bet this thread has got something to do with that dacron post of yours about patching a leading edge.

Just a tip on that nasty blow-job (sorry). Do NOT try and sticky patch the leading edge after you've fixed or replace your bladder. A blown LE section needs to be professionally sewn in. I know because I did the glue and mesh trick that some use on their canopys thinking she'll be right. Pumped up my kite and within 5 minutes - POP!

Triple zig-zag. It's impossible by hand.

Buy the $250 one and use the one you've got for spares.

I fix kites and bladders - Going by what I can see in the pic -
I don't think you'll find anyone that will charge less than $150 to repair
that LE and bladder professionally.

Cost depends on how big the tear in the bladder is and whether or not the LE
tear is only on the LE or continues down into the canopy.

You can email the photos to WA Sail Repair and they will give you a quote. Have been using them for the last 3 years - all repairs very professional and never had to come back with the same problem. Prices are reasonable and quality very good. My most expensive repair was $140 - middle line snapped on my bar and then right line torn off the tip of my kite.
