  1. A $40 gift certificate is awaiting our winner at his choice of Old City Kites in Sacramento, CA. JB, I will be in touch about his 1 year subscription.
  2. No need for a drawing with only 1 entrant. Thank you, @Ca Ike for not leaving my drawing without anyone in. Send me a pm with your address and favorite kite shop and I'll get your gift certificate taken care of. Also let me know if you want the subscription for yourself or if you want to gift it and I'll get that straightened out with @John Barresi
  3. I've got my drawing up, I'm locking this one down. Much Love to all of my Karma Friends and many thanks to @Mike Klaiber for this great prize!
  4. Alright Karma friends, in order to celebrate Valentine's Day in KiteLife fashion, this drawing is going to spread some kite love. The lucky winner will get a $40 gift certificate from the kite shop of their choice (spreading the love to the folks that feed our need) and a 1 year subscription to KiteLife, either a renewal or a new subscription for the winner or gifted to a friend (gotta send some love to @John Barresi who makes all of this possible). PAY CLOSE ATTENTION, BECAUSE I'M THROWING IN AN ENTRY TWIST!!!! To enter post "I'm in" or some variant thereof PLUS tell me why you l
  5. SWEET! My sincerest apologies for the delay. For the second time, my phone decided to not remember my password. So when I would check in to KL, I was checking in not logged in, therefore not seeing notifications. Gotta get that figured out. I cannot wait to get this kite in the air. I'll have the new drawing up shortly. Barton
  6. New drawing posted. Locking this one down. Congratulation, Joanna ( @dragonfish )! Thank you, @kiteflyr for offering the excellent prize.
  7. I'd get in for some line laundry or a fighter kite. Heck any of the stuff you listed would be a great drawing.
  8. yes yes another wonderful package! Now there is only to win it. Hmmmm
  9. Oh I so want to win this one. I know a certain small local kite festival that would love these.
  10. Riff, can you point me to the source image you're working from here?
  11. Do you have an example of a gritty, graffiti iconic logo to give us an example? All of the ones you showed are clean and precise
  12. Or, if like me you prefer it without the handles....
  13. I can't help but see a T, a K, and an L in that shape also. You just need to find a way to highlight them.
  14. @riffclown, there is a piece of sky somewhere we need to share.
  15. As usual my passions get the better of me and brother JB swoops in and helps me recognize I need to reign it in. Thanks, JB. Here's the deal,@SoggyWombat, for years, I proudly flew Revs and recommended them to anyone that asked and taught folks how to fly them, putting my own equipment that I paid for at risk of damage with no thought of compensation if something were to happen. Went did I do this? Because they are fun as hell to fly and I wanted to share that with anyone who showed interest. It was worth it, because I thought Rev was worth it and that the feeling was mutual. Then all of a s
  16. Yeah...and a steaming pile of $#!+ is still a steaming pile of $#!+, and regardless of your opinion on the matter I will continue to point out that Poway, California is home to a steaming pile of $#!+ . They've screwed over me and too many of my friends to say nothing. I'll mock their sorry butts all I want thanks, because they deserve it. Feel free to keep buying their kites like they're the greatest thing since sliced bread if you want. I guarantee they don't give a damn about you, only how much money they can get from your pocket. I on the other hand, as well as many in this thread know t
  17. When the party in question fails to respond when private inquiries are made, when they take money for a product that is not as advertised (or intentionally change the specifications of a product after an order is placed and paid for without telling the buyer), when said company consistently ignores or belittles the suppliers, retailers, and customers that have helped grow their business for many years, they've called their own integrity into question. It is sad what they've done to themselves. What's even sadder is that I think they are so arrogant of their standing that they can't see the far
  18. They keep making it easier and easier to not let any of my money end up in their pockets. First, their spar quality dropped off a cliff with no explanation or apology. Then they develop a crap gimmick kite and try to tell me it's better than anything already in my bag. Then they attempt to teach their customers (who are better fliers than they are) the wrong ways to fly. At the same time, they are actively cutting off their retailers (who have supported them for 20+ years) at the knees. Finally they prove just what kind of folks they are (lazy, dishonorable, dishonest) with this new B-Flex/B-T
  19. Love ya, bro. Gonna miss you
