    Sunday looks to be a good day for flying in Denver. Get to meet up with some folks and learn some things. Did NOT want to put my quads thru the grinder of learning on my own.2 more days and I think I might actually have a quad in the air . Getting excited!!!

    Should be okay. Anything bigger than that might be close to breaking the line.

    Looking to sell older model prism kites

    Kinda the norm for him. It took 2wks since I first responded.
  8. Last response I got asked for shipping address and said that he would be working long hours this week so might not ship until next week,but he forgot to give me his PayPal so I can pay him. He works a lot of 12 hour days so I’m trying to be patient. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

    Bridle line questions

    The kite is about 3-4ft wide (the body) and the tentacles are around 20ft. I have a reel, with brake. I have the 150lb line on that. Winds expected to be 10-15mph.

    Bridle line questions

    Hi, Snowlady, and welcome to the forum. How big is the kite? 150-lb line may not be strong enough in stronger wind. You don't want to watch your kite free-fly to someplace far away. Also you need to know that a large kite can pull a lot. Enough to cause serious injury if you're not careful. Be sure you don't loop the flying line around any part of your body and that whatever you anchor the line to will hold.

    Bridle line questions

    some folks don't like swivels, nor is it required but YES, tie a line thru the kite's attachment point with some 250# or 500# Dacron braided flying line, say a foot of length after tying it off (with a double stranded overhand knot or a figure of eight knot) Affix the swivel into that loop BEFORE tying off and attach your flying lines to the swivel afterwards. Sport kites including Revs, used to come with swivels affixed into the bridle!

    Bridle line questions

    Greetings— i’m new to the forum and I don’t get to fly often but we’re going to the coast this weekend and I need some help. Usually, I fly air foil types, single line. My husband gave me this huge squid type kite for Xmas and I think I saw a post that was similar to what I need help with but just in case, I thought i’d ask. It’s a soft, airfoil type, and when you pull it out of the bag, there’s something like 20 lines coming from different sections of the kite. They all come together and at the end, there are 2 knots. The first is right at the end, the second a few inches up the line from it. It didn’t come with anything else. So, I have some 150lb line on my reel and some #6 swivels but the lines coming from the kite, bundled, are way too big to fit through the swivel. I haven’t seen this before as all the kites i’ve had before come ready to fly. Can some explain how the swivel attaches? Do I have to tie another piece of line between the 2 knots? Thanks for the help!

    The Rev forum has been pretty quiet as of late. Your post was the first post this year and possibly since late November IIRC.. Welcome to KiteLife.. Pretty active community here..

    When 1st trying to launch a quad one of the guys was really trying to drill that into my head. Understand what he was showing me better now. Winds were real low and it was difficult to grasp. Coming from a dual perspective but think it relates. Talked to Lam Hoac a few times recently and he was telling me pretty much what Wayne has posted.My neutral position has been a fighter like position. Lam said that creates to much tension in the body and leads to bad muscle memory.Has its place at times(push turn e.g.) but makes moves more mechanical and less rhythmic if constantly returning there.Keep hands and feet always moving so flow is not interrupted.I get that cause watching a JB video is almost like watching a tutorial in Tai Chi LOL. Smooth and rhythmic. He also said to not try and break the bad habits all at once. Tweak as you go and the body will remember quicker.Been somewhat hard changing over the last week but now level 5 skill set is just around the axle. OOOPS I meant corner 😆.

    On FB - try a group called - Quad Line Kites - you may be able to find people there, depending on location to you. Others would be - Sport Kite Pairs/Teams or Kite Flyers 2.0. May have some luck with those ....or here!! Never know .....?!?! And thanks for the invite!!

    No I have not been on the rev forum for years as when I logged in I could not remember my password and it had been so long I had also a new e-mail address so I had to 're join So I guess I will have to find out but it seems quiet not like the old days Facebook yes I have been on there but alas no one in the area so I guess it's just me avoiding the dog's on the beach and the 2 liners buzzing around

    There are some here too, just not as many as there could be. A few groups had regular flies over there, don't know the travel situation. Might could be a group near by?? Just an ask - how's the chatter on the Rev forum? Haven't used it much myself after all the changes they did. Used to be a regular over there - stroke survivor" was my screen name. Made the move to here and also FaceBook. If you're a member there, try searching for any group pages in your area. Might also put you in touch with others.....?
