  1. both have broken about couple of inches outside the T, however, it is kind of hard to tell and the splits go quite far. I may just try gluing in a plug, although I hadn't really thought about it before now. Thanks for the suggestion!
  2. Oh, I enjoy it very much. I have mixed feelings about it lately, but not in the way that you think. I tried it out towing an 80 foot tube tail the other day, and loved it. I just feel sad about using it for that kind of duty, when clearly it is a much more capable kite. Thanks for the input! Brett
  3. I'm pretty sure that is for new Outerspaces. Mine is an old one. Maybe it is a direct swap, but my guess is that I will also need to replace the center T if I switch to skyshark. I guess its time get out the mike and start measuring.
  4. I have an old Benson Outerspace, a very nice kite. I have one spreader that is marked Excel 6. The other had no markings (I bought the kite used). I bought a pultruded rod of the right size, and it lasted one outing and splintered just like the first one. As far as I can tell, these Excel rods were something special, I just don't know what. Obvious stronger than normal pultruded carbon. Funny thing is, I can fly it pretty well splintered, go figure. Any insight would be appreciated. Brett
  5. Sorry, not a chance. If you are ever in the Seattle area, you can give it a try
  6. Why, then are you not out flying? Great picture. Brett

  8. Have you flown a rev? You may not want an EXP, but the first real rev I got was an old 1.5, pre-SLE. I think any rev will give you lots of things to try and work on and be fun. $195 with lines and handles isn’t really too bad. I’ve bought most of my used ones for around $100, but never with lines or handles. Good luck and enjoy. Brett
  9. Yes, that is a nice video. Thanks for posting.

  11. No, he was travelling with wife, dogs, and car in tow, so no time. Sounds like he has a good group up in Canada to fly with though.
