  1. all the best for all !
  2. really nice find. any intention to sell Rev's 1 ?
  3. sharp needles and polyester treads if you sew by machine or head and regular knots are fine. easiest and faster is with Ripstop nylon repair tape on both sides of sail
  4. see you soon Mark
  5. sorry for drawing delay Random Sequence Generator Here is your sequence: 1 2 Timestamp: 2017-04-09 02:48:17 UTC John your choice from everything and a big Thank You for your support
  6. we have an "epic" battle 1-1 1- JB 2- Paul Drawing on 04/08 around 2 PM Central time last call before " Rien ne va plus "
  7. mi bad, like always you are right Mark,i meant 3 feet.
  8. in 70's i use cambric for rectangular and diamonds kites but before to cut the fabric i rub it with beeswax and heat to be impermeable. about cambric cloth check this. http://www.typesofclothingfabrics.com/cambric.shtml for sure the modern cambric is not the same like 1920's just because of manufacturing way. a good source of cambric are cotton bed sheet with a high tread count but i think better is to use silk. square inch by square inch silk is having less weight and is more wind resistant. cambric is better if you will make big kites (3" and bigger) for higher winds any way if you will use cambric or silk by mi experience is good to put the spare on diagonal of threads to have equal stretch of fabric. good luck
  9. i assume JB will agree to extend this another couple of days. to make the harma more appealing i will keep the original Rev1 frame desired by Paul and already trow in 2 wrap frame for EXP, 1.5, B-series and B-series Pro. P.S. FYI Paul i use a 2 wraps frame on Zen and that is open a bigger wind range.if usually at 3-4 MPH Zen is to much under stress with original frame, 2 wraps is let you fly without to much pull til 7-8 MPH
  10. i know that for some like you John, from 36 you may cut 32 or less for Rev 2
  11. there are Shy Shark II late generation. I buy then from kites & fun things couple months ago for a Rev 1 stack. Are the rods used by Jon Trennepohl and Carl Robertshaw for the new Fulcrum Quad kite exactly how JB assumed. if the problem is dimension at 2 wraps meaning 36' for Rev 1 i will change the frame to 32' for a EXP,1.5,B-series,B-series Pro
  12. and now what ? i am out of options
  13. try to contact Kelly Reed at this site http://www.guildworks.com/. i am sure they will help you ,also check the video on this page http://www.guildworks.com/kite-performances.html. i ask the price for a Deca and the cheapest one is 1200$.... way to much for a mortal like me
  14. Choice of 2 wraps or Sky Shark II frame for Rev 1 or 2 wraps EXP, 1.5, B-series, B-series Pro Read the rules below, reply with "I'm in" to enter! Standard Karma Note from the Moderators This is a Karma Drawing. The winner of the drawing is expected to pay it forward by offering their own prize for the next drawing. Please do not enter unless you are willing to offer your own prize, preferably not the prize you just won. Drawings should be open for entry approximately 2 weeks, and the next drawing should be posted as soon as possible to keep the Karma rolling. These drawings are run by and for KiteLife forum members and DO NOT require a paid subscription to enter. The moderating team only ensures that your drawing post contains all of the pertinent information (drawing date/time, adequate prize description, drawing rules) before approval. If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/ The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat (I believe an adorable daughter did the picking in that scenario). The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post. Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.
