    Synapse 170

    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.
  2. @cerfvoliste We paused it during the holidays..
  3. @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/
  4. @John Barresi Any way to get the Chat footer toolbar back?? It's been MIA since the upgrades..

    Little Breezy

    One location in Colorado Springs recorded a 97MPH wind gust..
  6. While chat is still available via the chat link at the top of the page, that chat bar has been MIA since the upgrades.. Chat is also accessible and working via the link or a direct link https://kitelife.com/forum/member-chat/
  7. Love the low wind capability of this kite with the deeper belly adding quite a bit of additional sail area.

    Photos of my home made kites and accessories. Many made from Gomberg Kite tails.
  9. First Flight today. @SomeDude will be happy.
  10. VERY nicely done!!!
  11. Bridle Test went well..
  12. Edge Binding and Framing remain.
  13. This commissioned sail was started a few weeks ago and has been progressing in a very timely manner. No rush is on this sail to finish right away. Adding much larger solid panels to the Diamonds build technique. After a bit of consulting, the direction of the diamonds was tilted to give a related but different effect. Charcoal and Sky Blue are Icarex, Midnight is the Challenge PolyMax. LE will be white. Still considering options for the Edge binding.. Thinking Black.
  14. @gmrviper Actually you are fine. You have the topic over in Quad Heads which should give you some good feedback. We've all gone through varying stages of learning what we want.. The best advice you'll get is to fly other people's kites (known as OPK) until you have an idea of what would be best for you. As a group we can work with you over there and return to this topic when you are ready. I'll create a link here and lock it down for you.. Hit me up via PM or Chat when you'd like this unlocked.
