    Dude... what's wrong with your kite?

    The ends fraying is common and so is the wear from the vertical Spars. The newer Revs and OSK Freilein Quad Kites I have already have Mylar wear strips pre-installed as well as folded and sewn leading edge ends. JB offers a service to install Wear Strips: as for the fraying ends, I've read ppl using a lighter to burn them off. Haven't tried that myself.

    Replacement line for Rev 1.5

    For line weight and length I usually refer to this video As for brands, Laser Pro Gold is a popular choice but I've been trying out the lines that Ocean Shores Kites sells and its 30-40% cheaper. So far I've been happy with them.

    Sky Shark CXL Carbon Tubes

    I ended up ordering all of them. $75 + $15 shipping. I’ll post up some hd pics and maybe my impressions if the weather up here in Seattle cooperates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sky Shark CXL Carbon Tubes

    I use a lot of Skyshark and have never had the slightest issue, but I haven't used the CXL. I can't imagine them being anything but top notch.. ****Big note though. Keep in mind the outer diameter is slightly larger than Rev or standard Skyshark rods so you will probably have to alter, adjust or replace your endcaps from stock.. Ok. Good to know. With shipping it’s $90 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sky Shark CXL Carbon Tubes

    I tried searching and couldn't find any info on these. Has anybody had any experience with them? $90 shipped for all three sets seems too good to be true. http://www.kitesandfunthings.com/Products/QUAD-FRAME-KITS__quadkit.aspx http://www.kitesandfunthings.com/Products/SKY-SHARK-CXL-CARBON-TUBE__sscxlcarbontube150.aspx

    Need advise-buying new rev (classic or b series?)

    Things to note when I was looking at these 2 models recently - Revolution has added reinforcement strips to the back of the 1.5 classics behind the verticals. (see pic) The set of B-series I got did not have this but can be added by JB as a service. - You will get 2 sets of vertical spars 1 set with springs and 1 set without with the 1.5Classic. I have heard you get 2 frames as well with the B-series but mine only came with 1. $299 for the B Series from the Kite Shoppe and $199 for the Classic from awindofchange.com - You can get the 1.5 classic in standard, mid, and full vent

    Need advise-buying new rev (classic or b series?)

    Why not buy the rev clone if you loved it? I have a few Bseries and a few OSK/Freilein Exodus kites and they feel really similar to this noob.
