call Eliot Shook, get a French bridle, 12" magic sticks and a P-90 full replacement frame,... that kite will rock your socks off in any decent wind! Best flown on shorter lines so you can throw & catch it, probably shorter than 80 feet most of the time.
I like mine on 90 feet of 100# skyBond in big wind (over 20 mph) and on 50 feet of 50# Skybond when conditions warrant a more proper flailing length, down to low wind tickles. A single Axel is a miracle, doubles are too easy to do, flickin' it inside out, catching it like magnetism was employed instead just your proper techniques.
I like a Rev2/B2 on longer handles (15's or longer) so you can really impart your demanding will into a wrist flick or thumb stab which yields a dramatic impact on the other end with the kite. Heck you can even fly a "2" with no bridle at all, like my coach Jeffery Burka, (He flies his UPwind one-handed w/o looking at it, .... on maybe 35 feet of line. He could do this over your thanksgiving dinner party's heads indoors or in a 20 mph breeze off of the ocean!)
There are plans somewhere on the web from a French team of quad-heads, "Crazy Drivers". Their magic sticks are super short subs which bend the frame (exactly like the Reflex mechanism) and the "bridge line" of the truss stings is connected to the bottom of the sail (@ the center Vee) instead of going all the way across to the half half of the sail. This makes a very pronounced 3D-shaped sail (a flat sail flies better in no/low wind, a 3D sail is all floaty and has to be tended always like a Deca) and allows you to unroll the kite (after wrapping in up in the strings!) in flight during your throw! Oh but wait, they can catch it back rolled up again after flying around awhile. I saw this in Canada a half dozen of so years ago by one of 'em. OMG
Look upon your purchase as a great example of what's possible, all from that sail. You can go into a dozen different directions and still make it back to stock if so desired. I envy you! ENJOY
... if, when asked for the temperature after checking the weather forecast for tomorrow, you simply don’t know. I mean what is it to know (to make the decision) besides wind speed, wind direction, if there will be heavy rain particularly in really low wind and if the kite would be close to the sun?
The Feeling Gray set is coming along.. Sail #1 is a straight fade based on my diamonds technique. the other two sails resulted from starting two offsetting designs and mixing the halves with every other basting run.. It resulted in a pair of sails with a much less distinct transition pattern but an overall look that mimics its mate.. Basting is done.. Centers and sewing remain..
i may bet the eBay seller was raa20011. is puting on sell with omissions on description Rev sails. if you do not pay attention you will buy a Rev (like on your situation) without bridle or without frame
