  1. If you do go with Rev, I may recommend spending time with a New York Minute (either full sail or single vent) and after you've got some time under your belt and you are no longer a "reactionary" pilot, *then* i would move to either a Blast or Super Sonic for your speed. Supersonic has more speed and less pull, Blast has heavy pull and decent speed but does come with extra frame.
  2. First flight of the Trilobite 10, happened to be Halloween, and was a smash hit with the fellow park goers!
  3. Hey Mitch, thanks for the info. Also just noticed on your profile banner that your in STL? Im only a few hours down the road in springfield! Ever near by, hit me up! Edit- just bought the storm force kit. Thanks again!!
  4. I was thinking the dead blow would not be good for the metal stakes. I’ll keep it for camping and get a smooth head long handled framing hammer. Thanks again!! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Thanks! I’ll get this kit ordered in the morning. I just bought a dead blow 45g hammer for the big plastic stakes I first tried.
  6. Recently got bit by the single line bug, found fun 3d inflatable single lines, and pulled the trigger on a 5m bol. I am curious how to best anchor it. I do not know how strong it will be, it does not say what line test (rope?) I would need for it. I tried the search feature and read most of what I could find in regards to anchoring, but wanted to open up fresh thread for anyone to chime in and share their tips and trick for anchoring down bol kites to grass/firmer ground. I can use larger stakes there in my fly site since its not a sports field or anything. Anything will help. its been shi
  7. Ok, so after extensive testing today, I WAS able to reduce the sound a bit. By using 150# lines, B series Handles, Extra brake knot added to bridal, and added 3 wrap frame in addition to the black race frame. It was stiff, and much quieter. Took the 3 wrap leading edge out, and it was buzzy again, but honestly, after flying hard to day in nearly 20mph winds, I am going to count the sound as a feature, not a bug. At high speeds it sounds like fire. I used to spin fire poi for years and years and the sound made me feel oddly nostalgic. So im very happy with the single vent. The race frame is so
  8. I had originally set up on the handles for the B Series that has the knotted leaders. I’ll try some more things tomorrow, going back out tomorrow. I’ll try to add more brake. I know the only time I could get my full sail to flap was during a super loose dive stop. I could not load the sail tight enough to stop it, even when the pull got string enough for me to have to really lean back to keep my spot. I’ll report back tomorrow after trying more things. So far I’ve tried 2 different pairs of handles, 2 line sets, tightened the bungee at the bottom, different frames (black race and 3 wrap)
  9. Gotta tip my hat to Dave over at Kite Connection. [emoji1303][emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  10. Long time lurker, first time posting. <3 Been flying kites for about 10 years, and am a huge fan of quad line kites (revs in general). So I recently picked up a beautiful Black Rainbow, New York Minute, Single Vent from Dave (awesome dude) over a @kiteconnection and got to fly it for the first time this weekend. It flew like butter, but sadly, it sounded like a weed eater. Coming from my full sail Rev B series, which is silent as the wind, is a stark contrast to the rasping buzz on my new NYM. Nothing I tried could help tune it out. It seems to be the trailing edge, and it buzzes/
