I'm picturing and laughing, Shane going out the first day with his Rev Reflex and the loyalists all wanting to try out his kite for the first time and being kite flyer friendly and all. And the next day he brings out his Freilein and the Rev loyalists bring out their green race rods and beat the poor guy with them! OUCH!
Considering that they are no longer being made explains that! Not many will part with their Pros, if there isn't something to replace them!
I've gotten the chance to fly the Freilein - stock frame felt a little sluggish to me. T- 2 was the factory marking. Ended up putting my Rev race frame in it and felt it come alive! I keep hearing things like "the rods are stiff but lighter" , but that may not be what is needed. I've no direct comparison for what the T-2 rods equal in Rev rods, just know they felt too stiff for me. But from what I understand, the QC is more stringent, meaning less variance in weights between sticks of the same type.
