  1. I've reglued a set of handles using "contact cement" but I'm not sure what it is known as in the US. Stuff you put on both surfaces and leave till tack dry. Then assemble to marks. Still holding up to my abuse. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  2. Is that a vented Thor's Hammer!?!! Wow. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  3. Absolutely love my Seven Vented by SKD. Takes the edges of the Inland gusts while having trick ability. Perfect for when it's a tad over a standard sail. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  4. I've seen some Climax linesets that are orange. Heard that they were good. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Killer bird! What an awesome piece of Karma. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  6. This, is a kite I think everyone should have in your bag. Short lines opens up areas to fly that aren't normally accessible. Soooo much personality. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app

    I got a feather banner made for when I'm on the field. Also works great when we are at the beach so the kids know where home base is set up. Made by some good folks here in Oz. I sometimes just set it up in the back yard and just watch it flap in the breeze. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  8. Don't push it too hard. I can't believe I actually said that! What I really mean is, in the upper wind ranges the lower spreaders will pop out. Wind and input pop will do it. Trust me... Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  9. The B2 standard would be my desert island kite. In the 2 frame with sticks it is good to 20 mph! Sounds like a lightsaber in higher winds. Attach lines to verts for zero wind flying. Hell of a kite. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  10. Nice pics Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  11. Love where I live. I can have my kite, my field and my house in the one picture... Just south of Margs, very nice area. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  12. Oh yeah! My boy has been eyeing off mine. This would be a great addition!!!! Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Thanks, Noticed the app (droid) wanted me to log back in. Just ignored it. Now I can return to the cracker topics contained within. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  14. With 2 stringer kites, they ALL have their own personality and try as many as you can. Some you'll keep, some you'll move on. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  15. I'll be honest, only skimmed the replies. First kite, I wouldn't be to set on a crispy new sail. A second hand one still flies as good BUT there is a major plus. When you crash it you won't feel as bad. You have more confidence and will be a little more willing to try things if it has a few hours on the clock. Pilots are upgrading all the time and some offload their used sails quite cheaply to replenish the hard earned spent on their new bird. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
