  1. 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
  2. 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)
  3. Gotta tip my hat to Dave over at Kite Connection. [emoji1303][emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  4. 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/
