    Basically shut the door on it and the last inch of the wingtips were taken off... The kite is in perfect order now. Price reduced because I think this kite is out to get me.

  13. Welcome cjkramos

    Hey, cj. Welcome to the forum. I look forward to crossing lines with you some day.
  14. Welcome cjkramos

    Hi guys! My name is Charles and I'm from Seattle. I started flying kites 2 years ago when I met a Prism Kites employee at my wife's 20 year high school reunion. He introduced me to the quantum model and I've been hooked since. In July of this year, I took the plunge into the dark side when I purchased my first quad kite which was a Rev EXP. Hoping to get into slack line tricks soon with my dual lines and get more precision with my quad lines. Cheers!
  15. Prism Zephyr for sale, I have had a string of bad luck after only flying it a handful of times and need it off my hands. The first day out with this kite out of nowhere a dog appears and decides to play with it (image 2) -- patched with small piece of tedlar on the back The week after it had a little run in with my car and both leading edges have been replaced( I think this was payback for not flying it) Note there seems to be slight sail staining (it came from the factory this way) For the reasonable price of 140 you can have all this shipped to your door.
  16. Revolution Gear Pack (9/23/17)

    Sweet! My boy is very keen on the 2 frame for his B! Which is good as this would mean I get my other race frame back... Just noticed this is "stick a fork in me I'm done" ready. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
  17. New Flyer, Second Kite

    I've flown the SF 2.5 Vented and can say it is a well put together kite. Good balance and visually pleasing. It's a big wing so the UL sail would catch a bit of wind. Best way to find out what a kite comes with if the retailer doesn't specify is to send an email. That way you have it in writing to compare against other packages. As a general rule, you can fly lower on shorter lines. I found if I had two of the same line sets, I would chop done one of them to make 3 in total. And 80 goes to 30 and 50 (there abouts) easy.

  19. Bridle Jig

    Down in the Kite Dungeon I simply place finish nails into the plywood kite work table. I layout the dimensions with ruler & pencil then tap the nails into the wood just enough to hold firm. Later, when I am finished, I simply pull the nail out until needed again. I may leave small penciled notes for future reference or erase the marks if I decide they did not produce desired results. Mostly I work in inches but keep metric rulers handy if I am working in centimeters. It is also a good idea to check kite bridles for symmetry when you have them on the kite table.

  21. Bridle Jig

    Good informative post. I believe a lot of people thought that a tying jig is a complicated, high-tech setup, not realizing that it can be as simple as a pine board with a few pins placed at the distances between knots plus the length of the knot if so desired.
  22. New Flyer, Second Kite

    From my limited experience SULs are fragile and quite hard to trick without too much experience. Typically those are not the best kites to start with and learn new tricks. Slack is granted but generating enough momentum comes with a lot of practice I would go with a wide range UL/LW and after sometime start thinking about an SUL look at the swap markets - you can find excellent high-end ULs in your price range.

  23. Axle help

    Reviewing this thread made me think, so I took some Excedrin for the pain. Seriously though, when doing a catch and throw, it may be possible to make the throw an axel in itself. Has anyone here tried it? And with one spin in the right direction put into the lines before the throw, the axel would also unwind the lines.

    What a beautiful kite and a great opportunity for some lucky person to get! I'm in! Not sure 🤔 how this works? Do we bid?

    Maybe take 2 lines off the kite?

  28. Bridle Jig

    Not wanting to hijack the other thread I thought I share a little bit of insight into my Jigboards. Here's about as much as I'm willing to share. Every mark on this board is for a reason.. I also have a reference chart (covered) for all sizes of bridles I use as well as some critical marks for my Symphony bridles when I make those. and triangle charts for bowtie panel sizes.. Keeps me from having to reinvent the wheel every time I sew, sleeve or knot. I can tie, and also also do all my bridle measurements without the need for a ruler. I also have a separate jig board. (still experimental) to tie French bridles from a single piece of line. There is a bit of doubling on those but still it was a personal challenge to do so. So these two boards are used to create: 72" Bridles 83" Bridles 93" Bridles 97" Bridles LE Sleeve Sleeving Segments 2.2.4 Backsplice Marks Bowtie panels for all sizes so far Winder Templates
  29. Flying with no sleeving

    It looks just like the sleeved lines, only imagine two figure-eight knots instead of two overhand at the base of the loop, and a loop that's two inches longer, and no sleeving. You can tie one more figure-eight knot in the distal end of the loop so there is something you can grab easily to undo the larkshead when breaking down the kite.
