  1. A simple "I'm in" will get you in. The pick happens 12.11.15. Comes with handles and kite 

    Can be converted quad line. Only flown 4 times. good luck


    Standard Karma Note from the Moderators

    This is a Karma Drawing. The winner of the drawing is expected to pay it forward by offering their own prize for the next drawing. Please do not enter unless you are willing to offer your own prize, preferably not the prize you just won. Drawings should be open for entry approximately 2 weeks, and the next drawing should be posted as soon as possible to keep the Karma rolling.

    These drawings are run by and for KiteLife members. The moderating team only ensures that your drawing post contains all of the pertinent information (drawing date/time, adequate prize description, drawing rules) before approval.
    If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost.

    The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.

    Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/

    The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat (I believe an adorable daughter did the picking in that scenario). The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post.

    Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.

  2. The PB2-4 is a 2-meter that pulls like a 4-meter foil, hence the name "PB 2-4". I have a Red/Wht in the same pattern as JB's Blu/Wht, and in a 6mph wind I struggle to stay on my feet. I only weigh about 140 pounds, but if the wind is at 8mph, I don't even think about flying it. The PB4-8 is big enough to grab air in 10mph+ winds, and the 2-4 is enough to get me off the ground.

    If you are or want to get into boarding or buggying they are the way to go if you want ultimate control.

    I'm 220. And it might be quite some time before I get a pb or shockwave unless someone wants a trade lol

  3. I think the Speed and Power Series (Supersonic, Shockwave, Blast, etc) don't find legs with most Rev pilots because the most obvious draw of a Rev is absolute control - while the Speed and Power Revs do have control, a TON the finer control is sacrificed in order to generate more speed (narrower profile top to bottom) and pressure (flatter kite and stiffer frame), but those with an appreciation for sudden bursts of speed and power do sometimes find pleasure in them.

    In the right wind, I like the Blast 2.4 because it's closer in proportion (height by width) to the 1.5 class of Revs...

    That being said, I'm a control freak (coughanalcoughretentivecough) and use my B Pro 1.5 kites 99% of the time I'm on Revs. :)

    Well you know I love power. But after you let me fly your rev (first time holding One), I became hooked on the control aspect of kiting. But I just can't shake the itch for power. Now I want power and control.

  4. So what was bad about Rev Power kites?

    I personally have a PB2/4. As described with the Shockwave...it is a different flavor and style over the 1.5 and variation sized kites.

    I find it quite fun. The 2/4 has some grunt and capable of scudding,landboarding and buggy play. Also the 4/8... SHBKF can comment on that one.

    I am 6' 220lbs. The 2/4 can give me a really good workout in single digits and power grows as the wind does.

    Yet they still hold that 4 line feeling for me..more so over a 4 line foil.

    I have a friend that runs stacked Blast. He uses it for buggy and digs it.

    Well I really need one. I loved power kites, just don't have power kite money. Lol but man I'd love to have one
