  2. Hi there. I need some help about an old kite JORDAN PRO. Its all of connectors were broken because dead stock in a long time. So bridle lines were come off from leading-edge. If somebody knows, please tell me its original bridle length. Joe

    Oooooooooooo bazer eyes still one of my favourite looking kites and would love to own one [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  4. Looking for the next step

    Aye, any kite requires some degree of footwork in the lightest winds, can't be helped. What can be helped how the kite handles (stability / trick), how well it creates sail pressure (flight) with an even draw on both lines and durability relative to your skill, balanced against what you're willing to spend - speaking generally, there is quite a difference as you go up every $100 or so.

  8. Quad 1.5 bridles available!

    Also note, the Spectra bridle knots are now all glued - I seem to remember @Paul LaMasters asking about this a little while ago, it's been adopted.

  10. Kite Hard Case

    This is what I use for a hard case: https://www.amazon.com/US-Art-Supply-Telescoping-Drafting/dp/B00PR9KYJQ It is not perfect, but it carries 4 sails easily and linesets and handles can be tucked in too. What is not perfect about it? The strap comes off the middle connection and the handle slides so it has to be slid into correct balance spot. But it is fairly sturdy, holds just what I need, and is easy to use. I have been allowed to carry it on domestic flights and not asked to check it yet. I stuff an extra shift at each end to cushion ends for trips. It got left at home for this trip...traveling light right now- one travel frame, two sails, one handle set and two line sets. Now where IS the wind??? Sent from my Nexus 5X using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Welcome shirillz731

    Hi, shirillz731, and welcome to the forum. The Premier Osprey is an entry-level dual line kite with a 5-foot wingspan and weighs almost 6.5 ounces because it has tubular fiberglass spars. This, and the ripstop nylon sail material make it quite heavy for its size. It comes with 80 to 85 feet of 100-lb test line, and the recommended wind range is 5-18 miles per hour. It will be easiest to fly for a beginner in the 7-15mph range. It is not designed for low-wind flying, but instead to survive the bumps and bruises that a novice will inflict upon it. It is not designed to fly the tricks common to dual line kites, so learning to trick with this kite will be very difficult, assuming you would want to. To be able to fly in very low wind you will need a different kite. A full size performance kites that you can fly in low wind and trick with will cost $150 and up because of all around better and therefore more expensive materials used. The Osprey is not designed to do anything other than just fly around doing just basic figures. No matter what you do it will just not be any fun in wind less that 5mph. Remember, the whole point in flying kites is to have fun. Using shorter lines will make it move faster, which you don't want when just starting out. I recommend lines of 100-lb test at a length of 50-60 feet once you can fly without crashing using the lines you have now, unless they are more than 150-lb test. Shoot for wind in the 8-12mph range until you feel you can control it fairly well. Good luck in your endeavors. Have fun, smile and don't forget to breathe.

    Just like that, gone! Thanks Dave, and apologies to anyone else who missed the opportunity. ❤️
  13. Bridle replacement

    Long ago, I used to make custom bridles for folks off a board (the Ryv 1.6 bridle) , the fee was a 100 feet of hi-test (100# bridle line in ONE piece) and I mailed the finished bridle out in a No10 envelope.
  14. Fluke's journey

    thanks for the input. i'm guessing i'll keep the little bugger for the higher beach winds
  15. My HQ Symphony 2.2.4

    OK, I seem to have enough to do about 7-8 kites before I have to re-engineer the instructions..
  16. WIN: B-Series VTD (signed)

    Yep, and I recently bought the Lime/Black/White (as your Standard), in Mid-Vent.....

  19. Karma Flexifoil Stacker 8/14/17

    The other thing that's really fun with these 4' Flexi kites, fly one on like 40' lines and handle the lines themselves using your hands to "walk" up and down the lines, bringing the kite closer and further away... Saw Lee Sedgwick do this a few times, pretty fun stuff.

  22. Silver Fox UL / Acrobatx UL??

    I dug a little and found some information regarding these Silver Fox kites designed by Lam Hoac. I posted in a new thread titled "Silver Fox Series by Flying Wings designed by LAM HOAC!!"
  23. Welcome scottweider

    Welcome Back
  24. Tube Tails & Stunt Kite Air Brakes

    I Think that the conclusion I have come to here is that instead of purchasing a fix for my all around kite, I need to purchase a kite made for higher winds like the HQ Fazer, or even a vented kite like the Silver Fox Vented...so darn, I need another kite
  25. Quad Time 101

    I said the same thing until I needed a bigger truck and larger storage unit..
  26. Vapor time!

    I'm more than halfway through my project to see how much QLKing I can learn in 2.5 months - I have one month left. I decided not to do any DLK piloting during this period, which I haven't, except for the very first part of the period. The video you found makes it much tempting to deviate from that path by unboxing the Vapor. Went on to look for more youtube Vapor videos after seeing the above video. I think the below one addresses how much a light wind kite it is, though most likely the required footwork would be more than for Mark Reed: And b.t.w., good luck with your trick learning!
  27. Hi guys, if you have an older purple and black Prism roll up bag that you want to get of of please pm me. I'm interested in one that is in decent usable condition or better. Thanks, Lee Atlanta, Ga.
