WOW...That's Great!

A guy showed up at "MY" field (1/4" to the left of the arrow...heehee!!) one weekend with one of those and he let me fly it for awhile. Although, I'm not an expert trickster with the dualies...that kite flys "Great" and was very comfortable in the air. Also, when it was on the ground (which is where I spend most of my dual line flying time) the recovery was noticeably easier than my Nirvanas! That guy was doing a lot of stuff I can only imagine today.

Yep!....Just put it in my kite "box"!

Keep It Up!

To be honest, I don't think I've ever flown one of these... Heard good things though, and I know it's a classic. :blink:

I need convincing that I dont need aother Dualie in my bag.

Currently I have 4, a Sea Devil, Prism Hypnotist, Prism 4D, and a Premire Wolf.

So there are 2 numbers up for grabe to the person/s who convince me I dont need another Dualie.

Let competition commence. :wacko:

You don't need another dualie in your bag - BECAUSE - you are now a REV-HEAD !! :)

Reason 1) You are too busy flying Revs.

Reason 2) It takes twice as many kites with Dualies to get the same number of LINES in the sky as with Revs, and they are just getting too heavy in the kite bag. (I KNOW this is true; I have about 30 dualies myself.)

Reason 3) You never get any rest with dualies; like sharks, they must move forward or die.

Reason 4) Colorizer? Not this kite - its colors are FIXED!

Reason 5) Bikini lifts? With a Dualie, I doubt it.

Reason 6) Line-sets. Only two lines to match? Trivial! Where's the fun in that?

Reason 7) You might have to resign from RevGuild.

Reason 8) It's too much trouble to lay out a 4-line set; remove 2 lines temporarily: and then put them back together (only to discover that now 2 of them have stretched).

Reason 9) You are so used to typing "Rev" when you mean "kite" that your ability to be active in forums might be compromised.

Reason 10) You KNOW you don't need another dualie, because you have been forced to ask for reasons not to get another. ("Help me! Don't let me dual again!")

You don't need another dualie because you realize that there is another flier who has just come into the game late and has missed the great kites of the past. Someone who really appreciates the "old school" style of flying. Someone who is trying very hard to acquire those special kites of the past and put them into the air again. Out of the goodness of your heart you will aid this person in her quest by passing on those numbers. And who might this person be? ME!

You give me lots of good reasons not to need another Dualie Pete, however you admit to having too many yourself, so afraid no number for you.

Poacher I am with you at the moment, think photomom has the best comment so far.

Lets see who else chimes in for a Day or Two more. :sign_offtopic:
