  2. @TaylorSent you a private message regarding this kite. I have one I might be willing to part with..
  3. Haven't watched your video yet, but as I learned, I found it very important to setup the reversal by moving your feet first. Even changes in direction are setup by getting your footwork in order. Think golf swing - the downswing starts from the bottom up, feet first. I watched John's tutorials in a very specific manner - I watched the whole series concentrating on his feet. Then watched concentrating on the hands. Finally watching how the first two affected the kite flying. IMHO YMMV
  4. I've found my minimum is 50' for the Zen. Just too big for 30's, wind window is really small and I feel, too short to easily move the kite in turns. Added extra - 50' is about my limit to throw one successfully.
  5. View Advert ISO: B Series Pro by Bazzer Hello. I’m looking for a B Series Pro, preferably Mid Vent, however I’m also interested in other configurations or a set. Please send me a message if you can help me out. Thank you! **Picture borrowed for attention** Advertiser BlueMoon Date 02/14/2020 Price Category Kites (Quad Line) Brand Revolution Model B Series Pro  
  6. I would evenly space the tabs across the bottom.. This doesn't replace the front bridles though so you will need to find the spot you untied and repair that to fix the "hump" As for what to use, use the line quality closest to the front bridles that you can find. Since you are in the Detroit Area, I'd suggest tracking down Brett. He has one of my converted kites still and can share it with you. And thanks for bringing back one of my favorite topics..
  7. Is this the very first Kaiju? Wow Sent from my N9136 using KiteLife mobile app

  9. @Paul LaMasters We are actually in agreement but for the sake of this particular topic Eliot stayed with Revolution for a while after the fallout. He and @Cath did indeed pioneer new ground for Rev and have continued to do so since that parting. Bazzer and OSK were blazing the ground non-Rev very early after the fallout, even while Eliot was still sewing the Rev Brand on his Masterpieces. Eliot is still the master of all things Icarex and I owe the vast majority of my kite building skills to his tutelage. Eliots Flying Smiles Mesh's and @John Barresi's Djinn are both extremely important to the final mix but neither of them were doing their own brand yet during the Phoenix and Freilein timeframe. Like Bazzer with the "quarter vents", Eliot is doing things now that Rev would not let him do. The Djinn mixed JB's original concepts with Pro reinforcements and his innovation with the Sync bridle. Innovation has (and is still) happening but it is spread across several people now and not exclusive to Revolution.
  10. back in the old days (HA!) folks would "wet their sails" to slow 'em down before competing, or pretensioning the leading edge (adding a curvature thru the use of string down the tube's length that can be tightened ~ like Rok) venting and mesh kites now, better design overall of sail panels and shaping too bridles and framing choices We are so lucky now!!!!!! There's no bad weather, only a poorly equipped kite flier -plm
  11. Ha, the B -series pro kite WAS available as an SUL, you just had to request it that way ( regardless of venting desired). Bazzer always made em "my way", even unfinished leading edges when cooperative endeavors were called for.... ask for what you want
  12. Earlier
  13. HAHAHA ! I get dizzy rolling my eyes over the 'Club 38' thing. Rev had all ready lost my interest when Club 38 came out, and I can't even read to the last line of their blather before I scroll. I still like to fly my 4 liners (most of them are Revs), but this regimented approach to kite flying skills, just a laugh... Where's my gold star ? 8)
  14. concur totally!!! My bride and I had a great time at the SPI kite fest for the past week. WoW put on a good show too, Cosca did great as the MC on the mic! Fletch and I supported him thru sherpa duties, then did our own things when possible. We picked-up and incorporated stragglers (who fit our selection criteria "must be misfit material") as a part of our team. I would have loved a couple of hours of dead calm outside so we could abuse the AUAs acquired recently And,... we didn't use the mylar holographic tails either! Everyone was so friendly, we were recognized thru-out the weekend walking the island, felt like rock stars on holiday. Lots of folks were repeat spectators, both indoors and outside it seemed. They'd set-up and stayed all day too, beeping the vehicle's horn if we did something profoundly entertaining. We had folks stop us in the airport, during meals, just an amazing feeling to experience. (I AM the worst pilot in attendance, they still knew MY name!)
