    Stacking two revs

    Some pic's of my rev's stacked I attach pigtails at each connection point, then larks head the stack lines to the pigtails. That makes it easy to add/remove/switch the kites around

    I remember those days, lots of stacks, ballet flying, many dual line teams, and new kite manufactures just starting out I had been flying for 10 - 12 years by then, mostly Rainbow stacks, Hyper stack, Trilby's, and an Hawaiian (oh!, I still have them all)

    DUAL HEADS

    That's a great walk thru Rob, I would only add one thing, especially with new lines. I switch my top and bottom lines from time to time, and also switch the handle end with the kite end. This will assist even stretch and even wear
