  1. I have an HQ Symphony 1.4 for the drawing. It is gently used, in great shape and comes with a belt pack, line and straps, a cool spinning tail that I made (see Go Make a Kite for vid of the tail.) I've also included a little mini-stake that I use to lay out the lines. Multi-colored. This is a fun kite, fast enough for good play but not so strong a pull that you can let your kids use it.  

    I don't exactly know how to post it or what number you used to choose a winner.

    I'd get in for some line laundry or a fighter kite. Heck any of the stuff you listed would be a great drawing.
  3. Revolution Gear Pack (9/23/17)

    yes yes another wonderful package! Now there is only to win it. Hmmmm
  4. 75x Dermer DIY Kite Kits (7/30/17)

    Oh I so want to win this one. I know a certain small local kite festival that would love these.

    Riff, can you point me to the source image you're working from here?
  6. Team KiteLife Logo Contest

    Do you have an example of a gritty, graffiti iconic logo to give us an example? All of the ones you showed are clean and precise

    Or, if like me you prefer it without the handles....

    Here's my $0.02

    I can't help but see a T, a K, and an L in that shape also. You just need to find a way to highlight them.

    I pictured @kevmort's description more like this

    I don't understand the third guideline

    @riffclown, there is a piece of sky somewhere we need to share.

    As usual my passions get the better of me and brother JB swoops in and helps me recognize I need to reign it in. Thanks, JB. Here's the deal,@SoggyWombat, for years, I proudly flew Revs and recommended them to anyone that asked and taught folks how to fly them, putting my own equipment that I paid for at risk of damage with no thought of compensation if something were to happen. Went did I do this? Because they are fun as hell to fly and I wanted to share that with anyone who showed interest. It was worth it, because I thought Rev was worth it and that the feeling was mutual. Then all of a sudden by some of their actions, it became abundantly clear to me and many other fliers that their only care was the dollars they could take in, not the fliers on the fields teaching the general public the awesomeness of this 4-lined thrill to fly, the retailers who were their lifeline for years getting their product in the hands of fliers, not the teams who spent hours practicing to perfect routines and show the world how great these kites are, and especially not the beginner flier spending multiple hundred of dollars on an entry level kite with the incorrect "Club whatever" guidance to get them going. We finally saw that the emperor had no clothes and it was funny to us. So we mock, and will continue to mock as long as there's ammunition for mockery (like calling a kite that is an identical copy of the B Series a 1.5 Classic and pretending that it's a whole new kite like no one will notice) coming out of Poway.

    Yeah...and a steaming pile of $#!+ is still a steaming pile of $#!+, and regardless of your opinion on the matter I will continue to point out that Poway, California is home to a steaming pile of $#!+ . They've screwed over me and too many of my friends to say nothing. I'll mock their sorry butts all I want thanks, because they deserve it. Feel free to keep buying their kites like they're the greatest thing since sliced bread if you want. I guarantee they don't give a damn about you, only how much money they can get from your pocket. I on the other hand, as well as many in this thread know that they are not the only game in town, nor (in spite of their delusions) are they even the best game in town.
