  3. Alright folks, due to my current life transition(s) and unexpected expenses I’m needing to raise some funds so I’m putting up my last full set of B-Pros for raffle... Six kites (framed and bridled) in various good to rough conditions, ALL have a good bit of life left in them except for the STD (would need trailing edge panel replacement) but they are all part of a matched set that I flew around the US and at festivals worldwide for several years. Man, if these kites could tell stories... 🤪 All are actual Bazzer-built B-Series Pros, some with aftermarket leading edge tabs and wear strips added, almost all are TK-ties bridles in various conditions... Here’s a playlist of some of the adventures they’ve been on: Full list of kites and included framed: STD - Race SPL MID1 - 3 wrap MID2 - 3 wrap VTD1 - 3 wrap VTD2 - 3 wrap XTR - 3 wrap Basic up close look at each: All kites come AS IS, a very heavily flown set from my own performance collection - it’s possible that I’ve missed a small hole here or there but the photos and videos above are revealing enough - even at $125 each (a steal) this package would be worth $750, an epic score for whoever wins. Enter here, any quantity... https://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/95-b-pro-suite/ Enter as many times as you like! Each entry ticket is $5, numbers will be issued in order of purchase, no cap on tickets available, one winner will be drawn at random via Random.org on May 10th. Thanks as always for your support. 🙏🏻

    The instruction here work well.. You'll need to tweak the measurements a bit. On smaller sails you also need to start considering the added weight of the rear bridles.
  11. Yep, JB said something about starting it back up once warmer weather came around in hopes that more would participate Sent from my SM-N960U using KiteLife mobile app

  16. Hi yawll. Sorry I haven't been around for a few days but the wind has been better. So I've been taking advantage of it. I have been getting a bout an hour a day of fly time and have progressed so that I can keep the kite up for about 15 minutes till I try something above my skill level. Crash. Today I was able to to recover 3 or 4 times after a crash with out a reset. What a difference a bit of breeze makes. Keep flying . Thanks for the all the advice and guidance.
  17. Hey guys looking for another Hawaiian. Color doesn't matter, would like one in good condition. Any help or leads would be great!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using KiteLife mobile app
  18. Yep - the indoor fest is on that weekend. Since it is spring break, I wouldn't expect too many at "D" river too many people. Might find some behind the hotel by the casino. Less traffic, bigger beach. A bit of a walk to a bathroom is the only drawback. One of my teams practices there. Undecided about indoor or out, weather will decide!
  19. Several flyers will be in the area participating at an indoor fly that weekend. I’m sure a few will make it down to D river entrance to fly outside. Haven’t made up my mind if my family is going or not. Mega fly clinic the weekend before taking place in Long Beach WA. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  20. On an SUL you'd want that killer glide, it is available w/o reflex springs, you want to assemble (end-caps, washers, holes thru LE, etc) such that you introduce a pronounced curvature,... over the top of the leading edge. Your palm should fit between the sail and leading edge, touching neither. The bridle choice doesn't matter, we each have our preferences, only that all this crap is locked down, rigid, tight. You are after a glide where where you can toss the kite parallel with the ground, and it goes like frisbee,.... no handles or flying line, it flies an unbelievable distance straight away from you. Test1 i prefer a bridle configuration where you are gripping outside of the frame,.... any wiggling in your choice of bridle smooths out flight by deminishing pilot commands, first take out the wiggle slop! how much mass is necessary for enjoyable flight dynamics? Not enough and the kite needs tending on all four lines (like a Decca), too much and you have to flail and run around to MAKE flight. straight or bent leading edge construction? My no-sew experience had 'em straight, but we used SLE 7/16 inch tubes in ours, so they "threw" like a javelin! Years later 18 and I've learned a lot since those experiments folded over leading edge sleeve, or thicker choice to add some mass? All spectra bridle, figure of eight knots and nail polish painted, to dry over night! 3M'sVHB 9460 bonding tape and a craft iron we want pictures and enjoy the journey, I've been on it since 1993
  21. @DTill The Rods with the Green Trim are part of Revolutions new formulation to counter "counterfeiting" Rev will tell you flat out there is no difference but as you have already found the weight is different and the flex is very different. For at least a short period of time the GT (green trimmed) rods were very prone to breakage. almost always into 3 pieces with the breaks about an inch from the green. Rev "corrected" that issue but never officially acknowledged there was an issue. I'm unaware of a method to discern between the ones prone to breakage and those that are corrected. There was a big topic on those rods and the differences when they first started showing up. The meat of the conversations starts around the 2nd or third page in https://kitelife.com/forum/topic/7033-rods-the-difference/page/3/
  22. Staying at the Sea Hag for a few day's. Anyone else be around? Might even try to fly under the lights if the wind cooperates. If not I'll be at the Nauti Mermaid.

  24. Full vent arrived today in perfect condition. Bonus was a custom L.S. kite stake that I didn't expect, but was in the photos. Question for the masses? What is the difference between these the 2 wraps with the green stripes and the 2 wraps that came in my SUL? Green stripe rod is .2 grams heavier.
