  1. You're awesome! Now we can try flying some pairs during the weekend Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  2. Wow, that was quick. Thanks! Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  3. I gave my Backtracker away to a friend (I'm not sure that person considers me friend after that lol), so it's permanently gone from my bag. Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  4. Lol, they even spoke about the TC Power Ultra. I now remember that he did patent the 2 to 4 line kite. Believe it or not my first quad kite was a Rev Backtracker. It was the worst Rev probably ever made. I tell you, if you could fly a Backtracker, then any other Rev was a piece of cake. Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  5. In one of those pictures shows its trademarked and patented Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  6. I think you're right, I do remember him having a name close to my name, which is Eric Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  7. This is the T-connector locations. Oh well. another kite that needs a little attention...
  8. Well, I decided assemble the Symphony and two of the rubber T connectors are now dried out and basically disintegerate. Here's what it looks like assembled minus the two T- connectors
  9. Hope you can make it Bill. I just spoke to flying smiles kites and they'll have some 100# 120' line sets for sale by the clinic time Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  10. My thoughts are a logo that displays hands holding quad handles and line straps. I don't have any drawing talents, so I can just present thoughts.
  11. Thanks Lynn, I'm going to call the Flying Smiles Kites and see if they have a line set. If I can't get my hands on a set, I'll definitely borrow a line from you. Yes, the Symphony quad kite is definitely a different animal from other quads. It loves to move sideways, but not so much up and down. I believe the person that produced this kite lived in the Washington DC area and would show up to competitions around that area. I can't remember the exact years, but definitely in the 1990's. Around that time TC Powers was pushing his Ultra dual/quad line kite. I was never really impressed with that kite or any delta that was flown as a quad
  12. Ditto, it goes without saying in my opinion Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  13. I'm really looking forward to this too. Two more weeks! This is my quad line collection, it's not very big. Rev II - Well used and vintage 1990's Rev 1.5 - Well used and bought when Revolution first came out with that model. Rev 1.5 full vent - Brand new and flown once. Symphony - Bought in the 1990's. The maker was touring the east coast and winning competitions, both indoor and outdoor. It'd be interesting to see John fly trying to fly this one, I still haven't figured it out. Here's a website that shows the Symphony http://www.kitesonconsignment.com/kockitesalesquad.html Minergy Deca Zero Wind - Fun little kite, but not easy to setup. My line sets are as follows: 90# 17' - Tried indoor flying with this set. 90# 50' 90# 80' 150# 85' Do I need to acquire a 100# 120' set for this clinic? Excited about this event! Eric
  14. I hope to make it up to Salem that Saturday, but can't commit quite yet. Thanks, Eric Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
  15. I was really shocked to find out Terry past away. I was going to let him know that I was coming to OBSKC this past October. I knew him from back when we both started getting in to kites. I have few things from him. Quad handles and golf ball stakes he made. A MEFM he flew. I traded him my Rev 1 for that kite. Is Phil Napier still around? I last saw both Terry and him at the Blue Ridge kite festival in Salem, VA a few years back. Sent from my XT1575 using KiteLife mobile app
