    Still playing with colorizer

    I had a love hate relationship with the colourizer when I was working on a B Pro set. Fell back in love doing my Djinns though. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app

    50# short line lengths ?

    Short lines. I personally love them. They are intimate. Yes things happen faster but it doesn't have to be super paced all the time. I chopped my first set of #90 X 80 feet into 30's and 50ish. I much prefer the 30's! Short lines allow you to fly in very unique areas. I don't have any #50 quad sets yet, just made use of what I had. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
  7. One thing that@riffclown does on his sails that is worth mentioning is that the bunji for the bottom verts is a loop as opposed to a line with 2 knots. The loop retains the rod centrally to the mounting point. Absolutely love it. I can get a little "animated" when I fly... Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app

    Sail loading

    Depends on what you are you are going to do. Forward drive, reverse, side shift. I usually have my kite set before I load it so the drive is being used from the start of the loading. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app

    Need advice for next quad

    I'd definitely back a standard sail with a vented as the second one. A mid vent is a "luxury" and can be a filler later down. Depending on the frame/s that came with the standard B, usually a 2 and a 3 wrap, you could get a 4 in the vented. OR. To get costs down just get a vented B as a "sail only" and use the heavier frame in it. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app

    2 Revolution 1.5

    The lighter weight leading edge and bridle means it could be a SUL. This is a great starter package. Nice. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app
