  1. It's not a spool, I made this out of lexan. 2.5" x 3.5" and I use Nylon upholstery thread.
  2. Yes, I have the same handles. I replaced the leaders on the top and bottom to match what was in the manual. Instead of 2 knots on each I have 3. I put the bottom one on the middle knot and the top one on the furthest from the handle to start and adjust until I get a good launch and light brake.
  3. I think in time with more practice you will be just as precise. I did notice how lite it feels, almost like there is nothing on the ends of the lines. What color did you order?
  4. Yesterday was the official release of the Fulcrum.85 A video was released earlier in the week as well. I had pre ordered a Gold, Orange and Red one. Jon put it together yesterday morning and I picked it up yesterday afternoon. I headed out to the park right after, winds were lite so I put in the UL spars and got a little air time. The logo is printed on the bags not a decal. Well worth the wait, it Flys wonderfully.
  5. Exult, I saw Jon this evening and asked him about the handles, he was using 14" but said he could wait to switch back to his 13". He did say regarding the flip that "the longer handle might do a little better because you have more down there for the brake". Here is a picture comparison if the Rev carbon wrapped handle (black) and the OSK handle (red). As you can see the OSK aren't curved as much. The red handle has the leader set up like in the Fulcrum manual.
  6. Exult, When one purchases a complete package (kite, line and handles) the handles that come with it are the Ocean Shore Kite brand 13". They are an anodized solid aluminum handle with a firmer grip than the Revs, they also have less of a curve to them. I can take a picture of them compared to my Rev handles tonight when I get home. The leaders are tied like you would find on a Rev style handle, I got some 200# bridle line and made new leaders as shown in the Fulcrum manual but added a couple of extra knots. Whether the length is a factor when flipping the kite, we have not spoke about that but I will ask when I see him possibly tonight or this weekend. I believe Jon uses the same ones.
  7. I've flown my full sail in some high winds and when the gusts came up I was concerned about snapping the cross spars. That's when I decided to get the vented. I got it around the first of July and last weekend was the first time I had strong enough winds to try it out. Jon said I could put in the UL spars and fly it in lower winds just haven't done it, easier to get the other one out. The vented is actually heavier than the full sail F/S: Std - 11.9 oz UL - 10.9 oz Vented: 12.5 oz I think the mesh adds weight to the kite which would put it between the Std & UL frame weight. I think it might be louder than the f/s, maybe just the higher winds. But it sounds great If you are on Facebook, look up "Fulcrum Quadline Sportkite experience" page
  8. I was in the store last week and asked about it, Jon said getting closer but didn't have a date. I did get my vented full size, had it out last Sunday and it flew nice and smooth in winds 12-15 mph with gusts.

  11. View Advert Prism Tensor 4.2 For sale is a Prisim Tensor 4.2. This is Prism's medium traction quad-line kite. There is nothing medium about it, in light wind it is easy to fly and as the winds get stronger so does the pull. I've had this about five years when I bought it new but have only flown it a out 6 times. It is in excellent condition, no rips, tears or stains. All stitching is great and all zippers on the carry bag are in perfect shape. It is complete with Prism's convertible power bar and Kite kill. I still have the owners manual and hang tag. I love the kite but after a vertebrate fusion I just don't use it anymore. The price includes shipping in the continental USA. PayPal is the perfered method of payment.

  15. That looks great, glad I could help.
  16. Hi, Sent you an email with a contact of someone who will be able to help you with the Sky Burner kites Howard
  17. Thanks Gammoray, I set it up with the spar next to the sail. Not an problem that it's not a Gomberg, it was free and it works. Looks like a decent copy.
  18. The helix spinner given to me by my local kite shop, not sure if it's a Gomberg or a decent copy. The SLK is my ITW Delta Conyne 20210724_144653_1.mp4
  19. Don't remember the kite, but definitly had the rubber band plane.
  20. I posted in the advert section I am ISO a Gomberg Helix Spinner. Last Monday I stopped by my local kite store (Kites and Fun Things, John T.) and picked up some new line and we got talking, I asked about line climbers (poppers) and the helix spinner. John said he might have something and then grabbed a little blue bag off a rack in the back of the store, it was a popper with a couple of spars that had came loose from the base. He then grabbed another item from another rack that looked like the helix spinner, he wasn't sure if it was homemade or not. He said he was tired of it getting in the way so he said if I wanted them I could have them. I glued back in the spars back to the base and will give it a try with the next good winds. The helix will also need some good wind to to try it out. Here are some pictures of the helix spinner, can anyone tell me if this is homemade or a Gomberg item. The long cross bar is a 48" 3/8 wooden dowel and the two small end spars are a fiberglass type material with proper looking end caps. Also which side of the wooden dowel should the white spar be on, one side was like in the picture and the other was on the other side of the dowel? I have also found a source for a 48" long 3/8 fiberglass rod to replace the wooden dowel but not sure if I should or need to. Went to the park this afternoon and gave it a try. Winds were 10-12 mph. Sorry for the shakey video, yoyo in one hand and phone in the other. 20210724_144653_1.mp4 Thanks

  23. New to SLK as well, I happen to see the storm force anchor system on line before I saw this post. I have anchored to the hitch on my Jeep a couple of times but thought it was worth a try. I decided to make it myself with 2" aluminum angle, I bought a 1/4 inch U bolt and 12 galvanized spikes (the one that comes with the storm force are 13"). I made it 14" long and drilled 5 holes opposite the anchor point and additional 2 on the anchor side if needed. I was out this past weekend and the winds were 9-10 mph, I put up a Power sled 24 with a couple of Tails. The pull was easy enough to hold with on hand on the yo-yo, I had already set the anchor so just clip in and sat back and let it do its thing. After about an hour of fiddling with other stuff I brought the sled in packed it up and did a final check on the anchor, it was still solid on the ground. I was so pleased with it I made two more when I got into work this morning.
  24. My adult addiction to kites started in 2013 while I was on a vacation in Nags Head NC. We had rented a beach house and I found my way to Kitty Hawk kite store, bought a Prisim Quantum and a Snapshot 1.9 speed foil. I took a break for a few years but have come back with a vengeance, still have the original kites plus 5 quads, 1 quad traction kite, 6 dual line and 2 SLK.
  25. Mebeatee, To late, I've been looking for an Airbow. Thanks 🙂 khsidekick, I am waiting on the second one, John ran out of cross spars and they are due in next week. It's bought and paid for a blue one though. I have seen the Djinns and they look nice but i'm saving my pennies for the new Fulcrum .85, it's suppose to be a speed demon.
