  1. Djinn mid vent is my recommendation if your after precision. The supersonic would be my suggestion for speed, in the right hands it will fly faster in reverse than a 1.5 sail will forward. I only get mine out once or twice a year if that.
  2. My first rev is same color scheme and came with the SLE leading edge and I think The 2 wrap I’d have to look to be sure.
  3. Use a carabiner to hook handles to kite bag a fence chair anything heavy enough to hold kite up
  4. That’s awesome [emoji122] pretty cool looking kite.
  5. I buy 900 or so foot spools of LPG and sleeving material and make all my own. In 50 pound I have 30, 50, and 100 foot in 90 pound same lengths plus 30, 65, 85 and 120. Sometimes space is small so the short lines is all that will work and other times I enjoy the short lines 30 or 50 ft so I can see the kite and wraps on wing tips to make ground recovery easier. Light wind has became my preferred wind for duel line. When the wind picks up above 10 or so I usually get out the quads.
  6. That’s pretty sweet looking.
  7. Mamba UL will fly well in 3 and even down to two or slightly less with arm movements or a little foot work. It’s really not comparable to a pro dancer SUL but is way more trick capable. If your trying to fly in less than 2 get a pro dancer. For 2 and above up to 7 or 8 the Mamba is a way better choice. I always switch out when wind hits 6 or so with my moonie mamba. Usually don’t fly PD SUL above 4 or 5 but I have too many kites to fly and not enough time.
  8. Pro Dancer is my go to SUL when the wind is less than 2 it’s the one kite I know that will always fly. I have a couple UL for 3 to 4 Delta Drive UL or Mamba UL. If you want to fly below 2 I recommend the Sky Burner Pro Dancer it’s not a trick machine but in the right hands is capable of a few.

  10. When I order parts like this I order a few, 3,4 maybe 5 or 6, of the size I think I need and bigger and smaller that way I get what I need and then some. Also get some of the plastic C clips to hold them in place. I purchased several of each size smaller and bigger than I think I needed and it’s been handy having extra parts. Kites and Fun Things is where I purchase all firings and they sell Sky Shark rods too.
  11. I went to a duel line clinic in Long Beach WA put on on by John a couple years ago. Paul Dabacker and Scott Weider were there helping to teach all of us tricks or what ever we wanted to learn. At one point John had Paul flying his Hydra and was calling out tricks one after another for several minutes. Paul only hesitated on a double roll up, but pulled it off with ease. I was amazed at how Paul’s feet were constantly moving, and that’s what I learned from him that day. Keep your feet moving. I’m no trick flier by no means but have learned a few over the last couple years after attending the cl
  12. Your going to enjoy your Mamba, I love mine. I haven’t been able to connect with my Hydra yet. Enjoy
