  1. @frob As stated, I use both sides of the fabric and have very little waste. I let my patterns work themselves out as you already know.

I'd rather have 3 great sails than one perfect one and a bin of waste. Especially at the end of 120' lines, the 3 Stack looks better. I've even started taking the trim from my mesh kites and making tails I hate waste so much.. Since I know this kite is for you and a specific purpose, I'll just say, given when you'll be fl
  2. Same here. I like the Skyshark P2x Camo and P4X Camo frames. I cut and ferrule them myself. Less than $5 a spar and comparable to Rev IMO.. If you do get to fly with @Bunduki Vlieger He has one of them you can look at or at his discretion, try out.
  3. I like the Djinn as well but these days I mostly just make my own..
  4. You do have the best all around kites Rev made. IMO better than their current offerings. FWIW, I sold my XX and Spider RX and kept my B-Series.

  13. Sounds like you need a couple of C-Stoppers. They would keep each side from pushing the other side out.. You could also Make a sleeve from plastic. (Straw, Tubing etc) and glue it on at the appropriate spot.
  14. Decided to compliment the colors with the Leading Edge.
  15. I think I have the center like I want.
