    • hi all.  glad to be here.  been flying dual line for about 10 years but had the last 3 years or so off due medical but now back better than ever.     just recently got a rev (reflex)  and a quad power kite (sky dog 1.8).   excited to learn some new technique and hope to get with some  others to learn and share.     we have a club in my area but less activity that there was several years ago it seems.  i am in the north dallas (tx) area.    i will soon have more time for kiting and other fun stuff as i will be retiring around the first week in May. thanks, gw

    • Sleds? Yeah, I live with a family of sleds. There are some that live upstairs in a closet, the rest live in the basement. They are a reliable group, and can go from "in the bag" to "ready to fly" faster than Clark Kent could become Superman. I try to make sure they get plenty of exercise, and they seem happiest when lifting something. Since everyone can't fly at the same time, I have to rotate who gets to go to the park. If I don't, one of them might get disgruntled and start corrupting the deltas. And I don't need that to happen. ...again.  For the record, I love all the sleds equally. And I'm not just saying that because there is one in the room with me now.
    • Yes, 250 low end and safe would be 500. ( I fly tons of laundry) I prefer to shop local and have B&S on SPI, TX. Online brand for me is Premiere Braided they have the 250/500ft and 500/500ft.

    • I'm just not getting that bug. Picked up a New Tech Sky Hook 60 last week. My second lifter if you don't count big Roks. Would you fly that on 500#? and were do you get your line?
