  1. And throw logs on the fire! Congrats to all. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  2. You can fit 2 kites per pocket. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  3. Just realised this is happening in a couple of days!!!! Go 977!!!!! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  4. One way is to ask a kite builder to buy the off cuts or end of rolls. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Yes, a fair bit x2. If you have ever flown on the shorter lengths, 30 or 50 feet, you'll know the response is quick instant compared to 120. I expect they would be a little mushy but response would be a little delayed. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  6. G'day@NATO Great to have a fellow Aussie on here. Check out the member map as there are a few pilots stashed around. Me, I'm in Perth. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  7. G'day @BangaBob Another Aussie on Kitelife. Big Welcom Mate!
  8. I've seen a vented version in a picture on FB somewhere. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  9. I've got a few Revs without frames too. When I spoke to Jayne about a Pheonix Full Sail I wanted it as a frameless deal. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  10. Can get them without a frame or with one as far as I know. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Far be it from me to stop a sale but what have you tried to make it a bit more manageable? Less brake. Shorten last kites' bottom train lines. Great colour scheme! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  12. Great thing about new pilots, fresh eyes. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Green rods with an EXP, that is a score! EXP's come with relabelled 3 wrap frames and are very tough. Ditto on what JB said about urban brake settings. On my Full Sail I use for urban I connect on the last knot on top and vary the bottom if I let someone have a go. Generally in an urban setting you are on short lines, 30 feet. There is "moderately" less wind at that height. I use a 2-black race-2 with 2's for the verts and haven't snapped one yet. Touch wood. It has had its fare share of gusts but you can scoot to the edges quickly. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  14. If you ran a seam over them do you think that would help? Only adding the weight of the thread. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  15. I have a PoloVTD, Wasn't finished as well as I expected for the price. Had to wait 6 months, without any information from either party, for it as it was during "a world wide Icarex shortage"... However, it is a high wind demon! I've pushed it into the 70+ km/h and still only on a 3 frame. Different feel. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
