  1. Everything turned out okay at the end, however it was really horrifying to see my bol pull the anchors out of the sand and drag the along the ground. Lucky it stopped at an outcropping of trees and I was able to work it down carefully. Lesson learned to rework the sand anchors when the wind shifts Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  2. Aren't diamond rods hard to come by? Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  3. @riffclown it looks like I have my weekends mixed-up. I believe I can go to the Rogallo Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  4. Well Wayne I'm definitely not living in fear of flying with a team LOL. I honestly don't know of any active flyers in the area, but I do see the point you're making. Sounds like the original plan of going with the SS P-100 rods will be a good start. Maybe after a short amount of time I'll buy another set of different rods to try out. Thanks!
  5. @riifclown Thanks for the offer, I might take you up on that. Although I can't make the Rogallo, we'll see about the Wright Kite Festival. To be honest, I've emerged from a different time where most everyone flew dual line kites and few flew quads. The whole concept of changing rods/spars in a Rev is completely new to me. That only happened when I broke one. The kite just came with the rods and that was that. It's exciting to get a premium quad kite for once. Thank you all for the advice! Eric
  6. My style is more graceful and I enjoy more precise flying. Also the wind conditions where I live tend towards the lighter side. So the SkySharks sound more suitable for sure. I might end up grabbing a race frame in the future. Thanks! Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Hi Wayne, Yes the Ash is arriving at Flying Smiles Kites as just the sail. They asked me if I wanted to purchase a frame to accompany it, which I do, however I'm wasn't sure what frame to ask for. They recommended a P-100 frame, but i thought it wouldn't hurt to ask other opinions before it arrived. Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  8. Hi, I have an Ash on order and I'm hoping it will arrive within the next two weeks. Does anyone have thoughts or recommendations on frames for this kite? Thanks, Eric Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  9. Hindsight pretty much 20/20 on that lol
  10. Well, I feel a little stupid after flying​ my Symphony 2.2.4 with my new handles. Since the adjustment knots were on one leader of the handles, I figured those should be at the top. WRONG! So I was flying with the handles upside down. No wonder the kite didn't fly as well. Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Speaking of Sky Spy. What the heck is this? Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/322513819685 Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  12. I made my lines over a week ago and I finally received my handles. Ready for some Symphony 2.2.4 goodness! Thank again Rob!
  13. My first kite was a Gayla Bat kite. A had a friend at the time that I'd fly it with and he had a Puffer kite. Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  14. Here's a new version that I work up with my partner's help.
  15. Does anyone collect kite pins? I don't have many of them, but do enjoying pick one up from time to time.
