  9. Newbie Bay Area friends and Rev learning tips

    Depending on the sIze, the Synapse can also be converted to 4 line.
  10. Kites received well packed, in great order and exactly as described.. Thank you!
  11. Fluke's journey

    i actually like the widow ng design but the new silverfox seems nice too. i saw a post where they say it may be available in oct/nov. If true that's great timing still interested in views for the widow vs silverfox 2.3 vs 2.5 though

    Heard of, never seen. TK uses some sort of jig to do hers and they come out sweet!!
  13. New Flyer, Second Kite

    I rather enjoyed watching you fly my pro dancer [emoji3]. Wayne has an excellent point about UL Ultra Light and SUL Super Ultra Light wind ratings. I have one UL that is rated down to 2 and does well in 2 mph wind. While another brand SUL that I have says it's good down to 3 mph and takes foot work to keep it up in 3. It's important to realize that most kites will take some or a lot of foot work to keep them up at or close to the bottom of the wind ratings that the manufacturer suggests. Sent from my IPhone

  16. Maxi vented rev

    It's not one of mine. I just grabbed the image as an example, but I have flown similar kites. Flies like a vented Rev, maybe just a touch smoother with a lighter feel until you get to really, really strong wind. Kind of like being slightly "disconnected" from the kite. Like flying a ghost kite. Hard to explain, but I think you get the idea.
  17. Hey thanks Rob. That's good info for me. The Prophesy is the one I'd really like to have. An Illusion or I2K would be nice though. Thanks again Rob! Cheers, Lee
  18. Spectra sports solution

    That's a possibility. I can't find specs so I don't know what the wind range is. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  19. LE tabs (service available for Revs)

  20. 3 days with my first Rev

    Yeyyy welcome! Turn your handles even more, to get your bottom lines (brakes)like to tension even more, allow your kite to flip and flop and bowtie, then just walk to right it all back up again if you must. When the kite flips 'darkside' or bowties, it usually just floats to the ground and won't hurt at all so no worries (opposed to hard crashes due to error at high speed that hurt the kite) That's my moment that clicked for me. I struggled with figuring out that invert hover "bite" pressure too because I was afraid to "overdo" it (turning my handles too much) and flip the kite or crash it. That worry held everything back. Just let go, go for it, bowtie if you must it will accelerate your learning way ahead. Just my recent experience learning too! Keep sharing. Don't fizzle out, we'll all be here with you if you are. This is what forums are made for...well, typically forums are invented for complains, it's even better for any forum community when we share positive feedback and stories. Fly more

  23. The Phoenix Pro

    Take a B-Pro and a P-Pro and put one on top of the other (fully assembled) and check the shapes of the sails. I don't have a P-Pro yet that I could compare to my B-Pros, but I suspect there may be contour differences that may account for differences in flight. Changing the aspect ratio even slightly will make a noticeable change in performance. That's why kite manufacturers use templates to cut and assemble the individual panels once the performance characteristics they want the kite to have are achieved. Staying as close as possible to the same dimensions yields predictable performance from the finished sail. I believe that Bazzer, over the years that he's been building kites, has developed a pattern that differs slightly from the Revs and gives his newer builds a significantly different feel. You can alter the ratios of a sail and still keep the same size frame members. I would love to sit and talk to him strictly about the technical aspects of kite building.
  24. Hey man anything that is worth it takes time. It will get more relaxing once you can keep the kite in the sky.
  25. OSK Classroom Sticker

    I was going to give my teacher that one, but I figured the wind one was better for his class
  26. Prism 25th Anniversary Special Edition Quantum

  27. Reflex review

    Again almost a year later after it started being offered for sale, and being discussed here on Kitelife, I think I've found the first team to be flying RXs! Not familiar with this team's skills, but the performance with the kites don't look anything exciting like B's are in the YouTubes. :l (not sure if they're flying with springs or regular rods either) Very scarce coverage on these new go-to Rx kites, it's the new defacto if you're new to the hobby and visit the official rev homepage without doing further research on other rev models, so, new go-to kite.
