Quad 1.5 bridles available!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just an FYI - with the same quality she applies to our Pro Leaders, TK has also started tying up bridles that are compatible with any common model of 1.5 (including EXP, SLE, NYM, B-Series, etc) in !

They are available in a variety of colors using 100% cored bridle line, these are no factory build - totally accurate!

We also have SUL compatible bridles made with 90# LPG Spectra, great for those ultralight 1.5 kites!

TK has just added SUL bridles to the catalog, 90# LPG Spectra and tied to the same specifications. ;)

     Quad 1.5 Bridles (UL 90# Spectra)     

Also note, the Spectra bridle knots are now all glued - I seem to remember @Paul LaMasters asking about this a little while ago, it's been adopted. ;)

      Looking at a Brand-new 5- piece, 2-wrap frameset for a Revolution 1.5.  This frame has never been installed or flown, in original Rev packaging. 2 Wrap rods are the lightest and most fragile rods for outdoor use. These rods have a similar stiffness to the 3-wrap and 4-wrap rods. These rods are best suited for low wind. 2-wrap rods are identified by their label with 2 feathers, the words “Professional Use ” with an internal diameter of 1/4 inch.


      Drawing will take place in the evening (Mountain-Standard time) of January 5, 2018.
      To enter, reply here with "I'm in."
      Numbers will be assigned in order of entry, and the Random Number Generator will choose a number. Good luck. 
      Draw Date January 5, 2018
      In so far:
      @Breezin @Mike Klaiber @elmo264 @Wooljr Winner is: @Mike Klaiber
      Admin approved: One time change to the rules below as I live in Canada - I will ship anywhere in Canada for FREE.  My dear American friends who live on the Continental USA (Including Alaska)  I am most pleased to carry the bulk of the shipping cost but request $10 cdn to offset some of the cost to ship to the Land of the Free & Home of the Brave.
      =====
      Some rules and guidelines:
      Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.
      Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.
      RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.
      You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.
      Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!
      This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.
      When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it. 
      The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.
      Good luck, and have fun!

      Hi Kitelifers, 
      Edit: August 21 2017 - Follow my Rev Kite learning journey (from day zero to present) in this thread!! Join me, share the failures and achievements, feel free to chime in if you read something you experienced too!
      I'm brand spanking new hoping to make some awesome new kite friends in the San Francisco Bay area..I'm in Santa Clara and frequent the Kite Lot in Mountain view by Google, flying RC stuff secretly.
      Ive done research and know there's a Bay Area kite sport league or something, and big kite groups up in Berkeley.
      That's just too far for my tight schedule.
      So hoping to meet some folks around closer here that will be willing to "take me under their wing" (or kite).
      I'm madly interested in the Rev kites.
      Actually I'm this close to dropping my wallet for the new EXP Rx kite, but at the same time, I really rather just get the Classic 1.5 and spend longer in the learning curve.
      I don't mean to start anything with the kite naming here, I'm just going with what is available to me today as a new comer.  I am aware of the history of Rev and the whole rebranding debacle that happened recently (yes, I've been lurking and researching a ton on Rev kites already even though I've never touched one yet)
      A mentor and flying friend on the weekends will be awesome, hoping to meet someone really soon whos willing to help guide me to my first purchase. The summer is already here and the winds are insane!
      Thanks and appreciate all of you.

      So you have some older kites that you love to fly but can no longer get replacement parts for. The bridle is about to break, what do you do?

      So I have had my Rev Reflex RX for 3 days and the wind has been ok to fly every day, I'm down in Plymouth in the UK and we never struggle for a sea breeze and living 500m from a huge set of public football pitches on top of a hill it is one of the best flying sites for miles. 
      The first day the wind was a little light and variable with a 30 deg shift in direction which made my first experience of flying a quad a "challenge" to say the least only ever flying dual line stunt kites before it was mentally very challenging to get the inputs of the quad correct and when things happened quickly my instincts as a duel liner took over often ending on me "landing" unexpectedly, but as the evening wore on I started to get used to the feel of the extra bottom lines and could fly a box and figure 8 to some fashion.
       The second evening the wind was a little stronger and from a steady direction and I could really get the kite moving concentrating firstly on the box shapes then figure 8's the controls started to feel normal but not instinctive and I have to analyze what I did and how it affected the movement of the kite. Next was the hover which is much much harder than all the YouTube videos make it look! I had little success with it I feel that I must be over controlling the kite as it wants to race forwards but I can back it down very slowly but can't find the "bite" when it stops and wants to hover yet. 
      Day 3 and after an hour of single line flying with my son the wind felt good and steady so I set up the Rev again and really had a great time oh god this is fun to fly really felt comfortable in flying it around hovers did start to come together, I found them much easier at the top and bottom of the wind window, on the edges it veered off sliding and in the centre it was like a caged animal trying to race upwards! I felt comfatable enough to try an inverted stop and managed it a few times nicely but I lost my nerve and was pulling up high and about 2m above the ground, it did stop wonderfully but again my brain started to hurt working out inputs of the kite flying backward and upsidedown! but fun none the less.
      Sorry to of gone on but I'm still buzzing from flying and had to tell someone... well anyone...you lot....
      Matt
