We use the standard and vented Mamba, and the WSO UL for SUL winds. We fly laser pro gold (love the stuff) 90# X 120', 150#, 300#, and 500# X 140'. Rarely do we use the 500# line, but it is nice to have to help slow the kites down if the wind is nuking.

See ya,

On the various teams I've flown on, we've used:

  • Stinger 1000 (no longer made)
  • Allegro (no longer made)
  • AirFX (no longer made)
  • Shiva by CDC (still in production)

For pairs flying, I've used Shivas and Sea Devils. :rev_clockwork:

For our quad line team, as JD said, we use Rev 1.5's.

We are now using Nirvana's exclusively, except in real light wind conditions we will still pull out the WSO SUL. Our new routine was written around the Nirvana as much as our old one was written around the Mamba.

See ya,

My team is using Prism Quantum Pro's for team flying. There great

kites. I have about 4 in my collection right now. They are very

smooth kites and I love them.

What region is your team flying in, and are you still active? Who are/were the team members?

QPs make a great team kite!!!

Austin End Of The Line flies Skyburner TnT Comps, standards and venteds. Absolutely freakin' dependable. We also fly Skyburner Pro Dancers- can't trick 'em much, but they'll fly when there's a vacuum sucking everything else to the ground.

We also fly Northshore Radicals (standard and venteds) on occasion. Lots of work, noise, fun. REAL high on the big grin factor.
