    • Filling up quick, just 5 spots left now...
    • I rarely adjust the bridle on my kites. Each kite has it's own sweet spot, and once you find it, it covers the wind range for that kite. In my bag, most kites don't have a wind range greater than 5mph. It's either a 0-5mph kite, or a 5-10mph kite.  I have never noticed much of a difference adjusting AOA, it is not some magic trick that will make one kite into two. You may have gotten the impression that adjusting the nose in will make the kite fly in light winds. If you're lucky, it might buy you a  1mph lower wind range. But don't even count on that. I leave the AOA somewhere close to mid-way, a little bias towards the nose, but that's just me. I don't like a hard pulling kite, and I feel that my turns are sharp enough, and my stalls are stally enough for me.  BTW, if you read deep enough into Prism literature, you will find the statement that says to adjust the AOA towards the nose in the highest winds. I remember that, but forget which field card it was on... I'll have to look it up.
    • Glad to hear you are still "on" Walt!! Might try to get back to Bill about what you do have in stock right now!
    • Hi all! I am still here, but life has thrown me some major curves. Right now my workshop is full of, "ahem", crap, and it makes it really hard to find the space, and sometimes, find the tools, to make parts for kite stakes. I have also lost my source for the Davis kite stakes, Davis glass the maker of the really nice marbles, is no longer in business. I still have originals, and I have a few in my rack right now, but choices are limited. PM me here or on facebook and I will send you photos of what I have ready to go. Other than that, once I am able to clean out the 8ft high mound of boxes out of my workshop, have a major yard sale, and get back to a real life job, I will be able to start making stakes again, and opening my online sales.   Not everything in photo is available......must contact me to see what I have.
    • The original Ninja Eyes set by Bazzer. This is the very first set made, and are the only one of two sets made in the Rev1 sail size. Sails were sewn by Bazzer, but they were finished by Revolution. They are the only kites finished by Revolution that does not have the revolution logo imprinted on them, that I know of. The other kite set is owned by Ben Dantonio, retired general manager of revolution(the last I heard). AS far as I know, these are the kites that started the series of special kites made by master kite makers for Revolution. This set is one vented and one full sail kite, with stacking lines, 120ft laser pro line set, 15 inch snagless handles. The kites are in very good shape, I never flew them in high winds and always took good care of them. No rips, tears, or stains, mesh is in excellent shape. The buyer will be tasked with keeping a bit of Revolution history, they are listed in John Mitchell's list of notable kites in Revolution's past. $2000, including Priority shipping in the US.
