  1. Black race frame in a standard is my preferred set up! If the question was for me... Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  2. Only flown Revs in the rain. I come in one knot on my brakes for light showers, 2 for medium. So long as the wind is there, there really isn't much difference. Apart from getting wet. Check that your bridle won't bleed colour onto your sail when packing up. My wet weather mantra: Put on layers, stop when skin gets wet... Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  3. Catch part. I've caught a few of my 4 stack on 30 foot lines with 4.5 foot train lines. Most successful was holding my handles in left hand and hold that arm straight out. Right arm kind of pointing to the sky. And the catch part is like you playing Pacman with the kites. Positioning yourself to be quite centre really helps. That, and a shallow arc keeps it tight. I saw the pics of JB catching 2 and it started from there with me. I sometimes just use a 2 stack on 30 foot at my local basketball court. Good fun. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  10. The prism DVD is ok. Freestyle Pilot. I got one a a while back. It's good if you prefer to watch a DVD rather than stream from the net. I think "Trick or Treat" DVD from Tim Benson is a little more up to date. Better production too. Has more flying sequences. Dodd's 6 step was really helpful to me. Also Randy G's stuff was good. But they are both net based. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  12. Yes. Experiment is a great way to "discover" what you like and don't like. I still do it. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Super sweet deal! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  14. Yes sail pressure is greater due to the most amount of sail presented perpendicular to the wind. However, as the drive has been taken out or reduced it slows the kite down. Like a vector, lots of magnitude just not much direction. I have all types set with nose back as it is the setting I like. Having a SUL to Vented range now I would be pulling out the Vented when the wind is kicking. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  15. With my Jammin, I tightened up the wing tip sail tensioner loops. I like long ground passes and they can pop off after a bit of contact... Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
