  2. Congrats ! So happy to read this ! I'm Wishing you best of wind to fly this !
  3. ho hum another windless day winds 0 gusting to 2. not even the echo likes that. i took some 50lb line scraps that are about 35' and sleeved them for days like this but that gets boring fast plus i have to run around like a little kid towing his little kite...undignified,lol Breezin i dont think i'm catching up to you too fast in these low winds, you got nothing to worry about. btw, my oldest son lives near Aurora...if and when we're out that way i'll look you up and we'll kill some snakes and spiders with you. common spiders and garter snakes is about it around here. same goes for you if you ever get to long beach washington-international kite festival on another subject, whats up with the widow maker and apas? i think i read something like that on one of RobB's posts... do the flying lines/leaders rub on them? since i'm looking for a WM. i probly should get to know the weaknesses and on another subject: icouldn't find any technical info on Lam kites...that vip II gravity looked stiffer/heavier then the echo when he was flying indoors...looked pretty cool tho, nice graphics and finally, the german guy knocked off another 10 euros on his wm...sprechen sie deutsch? anyone? Bob

  6. Next project will be two kites that will mirror each other. Will use R,O,Y,(FY),(FG),G,(LB),B,V variation across the face. Gray Fade Darker in the middle with the White Mesh interspersed among the gray. This will probably go much slower than my other recent projects due to piecework on several of the strips needed to utilize some of the shorter strips in my strip box.
  7. For me these patterns are all tiger themed (without the resemblance being too evident thus working on longer terms). Pattern one and four leads me to think of the heads of tigers, while two and three are more of tiger bodies.
  8. You definitely have some solid choices. For some reason my eye keeps wandering to the black with red stripes. It makes a very bold statement.
  9. I like this one, I've been trying to work out a grey fade with red. this looks great.

  12. thanks guys @matthijs1973 , RobB , Breezin: so far i have been able to go to the post and figure out he wants $185 including shipping...probly europe...not sure if the kite pictured is the one for sale or not. "und hier fotos von der spinne" translates to "here are photos of the spider" i guess thats his affectionate name for his widowmaker... a german guy who names his kites...sounds familiar. not sure where to go from here...register for the german forum i guess...BUT im gonna play this relaxed and cool (finding my WM, that is) not wide eyed and stammering like my previous kite purchases and then pacing the floor like an expectant father till i have it in hand...no, relaxed and cool this time... i remember when i found my zephyr in the closeout bin at prism.com...$150 with slight blems and fell over myself trying to get it ordered before it was gone...the next day they were gone. that put me on the hunt for a quantum pro and an e3...havent found a new Qpro yet but got the E3 brand new from some retailer for $150 on closeout... picked up 2 hydras at half price and still kicking myself for not getting a couple of Kymeras while they were around. the advice by several members here to newbies was to fill voids in your quiver in order to fly in all winds...that resulted in 2 Echos...that brings us to the present...i want a WM...im probly gonna get one sooner or later but im pretty well set to just spend some time flying and make it to the next level...as JB has said, to fly with intent. enough rambling the wind is picking up fair winds my friends Bob

    These are some of my ideas for a custom djinn.
  15. Judging from some of your past kite creations, you'll come up with something truly creative. We're all patiently waiting to see what that is... no pressure 😉.

  18. If you were an East Carolina Pirate fan, I had designed a custom sail with a certain amount of Aaarrrgghhh to it 😉
  19. Holy Sh*t!! (Excuse the language.) This was the last thing I was expecting. Guess I had better get to work on the colorizer. Thank you!! Thank you!!! Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
