  1. Just about finished with a Le Quartz sail and I definitely want to make something on the kareloh website. I noticed his plans only include a one pager of the the molds and the blueprints. How do I use these? Project them?
  2. You can buy the sail, bridal, and bag and frame it yourself. Kites and fun things (skyburner) can help you with framing it and getting the right hardware.
  3. maybe I’ll just order a n3e sail I have 6 5pts. Maybe order some nitros and frame her up. I’ll try that next time I’m out and theres some standard wind. I’m getting very sensitive to inputs and am starting to see how it should feel based on description.
  4. Yeah can fly at the top of the window pop and just give a good amount of slack and it’s rolled up. fade on my shadow is more stable than the hydra. I still need down yo yos and that’s the first step to a yo fade. I just really need to fly this week. I finally got a couple hours today and got my yo lazy a solid. And side unrolls. hydra is weird I can’t feel how much tension to give or take. Need more time on the lines in fade. yeah my gf said she wants to buy me a kite this. Christmas so I told her level one badass or benson. Just told her the benso
  5. I literally just sent benson an order trying to see how long it’ll take. My LKS didn’t have the deep space otherwise I would have bought today. also I just discovered my back seats fold down so I can transport a level one badass. So I’m stuck between the two. I allowed to buy one kite lmao. I don’t really like deep turtles it’s hard to get out of you gotta lazy out pop or half lazy fade barrel. The hydra sits shallow and is easy to get out just a little pop and you’re there. ive been flying with one thought now, fly the lines not the kite and it’s been helping me

  7. Deep space it is Can’t go wrong with two bensons lmao.
  8. Thanks. This was what I was looking for before buying a benson.
  9. I just watched the supernova video in the benson site. Taz cascades and coiln tosses look really cool on it but I didn’t see it roll I’ll and it doesn’t look like there are stoppers in the picture online. So I’m not too sure about yo-yo based stuff in this kite. I’m sure you could install stoppers. Deep space is a roll up machine. JB rolled one up like 30 something times and unrolled. Get an ATM to match your dream machine?
  10. This is why I’m going with a deep space. Zuul flies close to my home field and makes his own kites too so I trust his words. Deep space is classic. Watching trick or treat got me wanting a deep space too. And my LKS has a deep space STD and I’d much rather buy all my kites from there than online. And now I’m also sad I’m not getting the nirvana so I need a new kite this weekend and it seems like the deep space is the coolest kite that he currently has that I can pickup.
  11. Nah PayPal refunded me. Lmao. Boutta get a deep space on Saturday.
  12. She flies too lol. She just knows that I have a large wind range covered so I shouldn’t be buying another kite lol. She doesn’t trick though so it’s hard to explain the quirks and nuances of different kites.
  13. I’m with you on the deep space Mike. I’ve been watching the trick or treat videos the last couple days and my want for a benson is very heightened right now. Lmao I’m in the same boat. I’m not allowed to buy a kite for 4 months, supposed to be 6 but she’s being nice. I acquired 5 kites in 2 months.
  14. Great thing about flying in Berkeley is that most of these kites are accessible to try before I buy lol. There’s a M3 coming soon. Rob said I shouldn’t outgrow the nirvana anytime soon but we all wanna add a new kite to our bag all the time right? I think the next one getting put in my bag is a deep space. I’m starting to be able to hit a lot of tricks in a fast succession, want something really tricky. I think Highline has a purple std so no waiting for Tim to build and ship one from across the pond. I know there’s a couple Geminis and an outer space there. I spoke to lam maybe 3 weeks
  15. No one was home to get it and they sent it back to the UK lol. It’s coming next Friday. I’m excited. I’ll let you know how it goes. There’s a guy that that flies out where I do that has a full set of nirvanas. I think my next few kites are going to be a lam, a blue moon, and a benson. There’s so many good kites to buy. My friend has 100+ dual line sport kites. Does your dream machine have a black sail with green red and yellow?
