  2. B-Series ... Reflex ... B-flex

    Not true ;-) The initial iQuad days involved Rev1s for the first couple of months, but they were not loaded with SLEs. We did move fairly quickly to 1.5s and those didn't have SLEs in them either.
  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She also had her very first CANADIAN birthday too! We treated her well!
  4. Music on You Tube

    While there certainly is some hope in an article like this, my worry is what they are negotiating is simply music vidoes by the artists themselves over where other people use music for other purposes. But, it's bear watching close and thanks for the update.

    heh as Bazzer and I sort of my screaming radio go crazy
  6. QUAD OR DUAL LINE,IN ONE KITE ?

    Yes, I do believe the vents increase the wind range although I think the placement on the ultra keeps the wing tips from rattling in the higher winds. I don't think they affect doing quad stuff. I am surprised how well it handles the higher winds since it's not a very heavy kite, but it will still hang in there in a lighter wind. Thanks again:) Please feel free to ask as many questions as you wish:). In fact, they DO affect the quad performance, they make a reverse flight a little smoother.
  7. QUAD OR DUAL LINE,IN ONE KITE ?

    It's very definitely a flyable kite and unique in its experience. I should dust mine off again sometime soon just to see what it was like again.
  8. new account admin approval hurts discussion

    I know that the times I've "babysat" the forums while John has been jetting around, I've been stunned with the sheer volume of mostly obvious spammers that try to get onto boards. It's most definitely increased over the past years. For others reading this thread, the reason why that these people continually try centers around Google rankings. The more their URL shows up in stats on Google, the better those spam sites will do.
  9. QUAD OR DUAL LINE,IN ONE KITE ?

    My first quad was in fact a pair of TC Ultras, back when they were hand made by TC himself. Fun kites, I still have the SUL one but it rarely comes out these days.
