  1. Nice win Brian. Congratulations my friend.
  2. I only fly Revs, so I can't judge about other kites. My personal opinion is to pay a little more, find a JB Rev or a New York Minute (without the Reflex system), if you want to stick to a Rev. But keep in mind parts for older Revs like these become rare lately. That can be a problem later. The EXP is not bad, but also not a model that invites you to grow. Also keep in mind that different frame types (if still available) makes your kite fly very different.
  3. Congratulations Dave with this beautiful kite. And a big thanks to Yoyoing_p again for his nice gesture. 😀And of course also congratulate to you John. Living on a five minutes walk from the beach is a wonderful place for a kiteflyer. 👍
  4. Never mind John, as long as I didn't miss it. 👍
  5. Congratulations Fred Degley. Enjoy your winnings.
  6. Amazing, thank you Yoyoing. And Kite forge of course.
  7. Congrats Yoyoing_p, and enjoy your winning. 👍 And glad to hear you and your kid are ok John.
  8. First things first John. Take care my friend.
  9. We're not as greedy as we look John. 😄 Take your time.
  10. It flies nice. Reacts good on changing line tention. 👍
  11. I have a set of P90 and in my opinion it is the same as the race frame black. Perhaps even lighter. But let's talk about weight. I have been working with RC gliders for years. Here, too, every gram counts. But at some point it turns out that when you get a little more experience, the weight has less of an influence. I also notice that with flying kites. Of course it is nice when your kite weighs as little as possible, but when you gain more experience with the same kite, a few grams more suddenly no longer matters. Just my two cents though.😉
  12. Congratulations with your winning Brian. 👍

    Here is the clear kind. It only costs €4,50 a liter. No, the reason is that something of silicone remains in the yarn and of paraffin not, because it evaporates completely. So you can impregnate the yarn with paraffin, because it evaporates anyway. Both prevent glue build-up on the needle, only paraffin evaporates completely. But to be honnest, I doubt silicone has any adverse effect on yarn or kite fabric. Anyway, when i started tu use these coated needles and the Prym tape, there is no need for using them at all.

    This can well be. I am only sharing my experience and not criticize other products. The result can be different due age of the tape, themperature, condition of the needle ect. My only advice is; stick to what best works for you. Just one word of advice though, when you edit the sewing thread, it is better to do this with paraffin than with silicone. Paraffin also repels glue, but evaporates after a few minutes, while silicone remains permanently on the yarn.

    Yes, i have, but i like this product better because it is a little less sticky for the needle.

    I've did and never use another kind of needles again. Works wonderful. You can even sew glued Velcro without any problems. These needles have a black coating.
  20. I'm curious if this works, but it's worth a try. I must honestly say that I find a slack frame like the race frame to fly better than a stiff frame. I have no experience with Freilein, so I can't comment on that. Anyway good luck. 👍
  21. Or use a lighter frame and shorter lines.
  22. Knowing what not to use is also valuable. 😉
  23. Actually it's simple, the list of quads is equal to the list of essentials. 😄
