  1. that vent job is extremely interesting. how did you finish the hole edges? sewn? superglued? some other method? or does the fabric simply hold together without any help? tom
  2. in my typical "here and gone" wind conditions, there was far more "gone" than "here." when it was here, though, this thing flew wonderfully. and, it's gorgeous. the pictures don't really do it justice. thanks a million, T in WI, and to all others for their insight and input. tom
  3. put it up in alleged 6mph, which was coming and going here in SE michigan, and it was "ok." only stopped because i was facing into the sun and didn't put on any sunscreen. my face is already baked from coaching at outdoor pools, and i didn't need any more of that action. now, though, i'm prepared and have alleged 8mph and am heading back out before it rains. i have a regular rev 1.5 (bought here) that works well in 10-12 and above, so i don't need to wreck this one by flying in conditions that aren't good for it. gee whiz, i wish i would have discovered this activity many years ago. great fun, great people, what more could you ask for? tom
  4. also, what i have available is 90lb. 80 ft. lpg. tom
  5. you guys have provided lots of great info. thank you. black race it is! with that, what should be the upper wind limit that this setup should go out in? tom
  6. well, i guess i'll find out today or tomorrow. thanks for the responses, and i'll be ready to drill if necessary. tom
  7. can anyone here tell me how a rev race frame compares to the p100 frame that's recommended for this kite? thanks! tom
  8. interested. sent message. tom tomdiving@yahoo.com
  9. grab an EXP for 200 bucks just about anywhere. they're rtf. add handle leader extensions and you'll now have a really fantastic rev. the difference between stock and extended leaders is night and day - no joke. this thread made me make the switch and i'm sooooo glad i did. (there are MANY good tidbits of info here, read the entire thread) if you want to see what all the fuss is about - you could easily get away with simply having 2 strings of 90 lb. test or better and knotting both ends of both strings (old shoestring, etc.) so that the knots are about 4 1/2 inches apart. larkshead the original leader to one end, larkshead the flight line to the other knot, and you're in business. if that is the only thing that you do, you'll see a much greater control improvement. tom
  10. you've got a buyer, ken. send me a message for a paypal address and i'll get the 350 to you asap. thanks! tom tomdiving@yahoo.com
  11. i'll buy your kite for the 150! tom papp - tomdiving@yahoo.com
