  1. Motor for buggying, or land board, etc.  If you fly Rev's the PB is a great option for power (dragging) or a motor.

    As for the really fast speed part, Ed and I got the Spiderkites Lycos 2.5 competition.  Flies in 3-5 mph, zips around at 10 mph and approaching 20 it will drag you around all at warp speed.  On a recent trip to the beach we had steady 12-14 mph and flew the Lycos on 150' lines.  Great fun, so smooth and not much pull at that speed.  Here is a shot of them flying taken from my KAP rig.

  2. When are at the beach and which beach. Kite Festival at Atlantic Beach on the 24-25th. Many Revheads there to help you out. Also where is your not beach location? I fly often while home and would be happy to meet and help any way I can.

  3. I think it is a great prize. But I abstain because I already have one and love it. I carry my phone (non flip style) and pop in the Weather Flow. Nice easy to read display. You can log the reading for your records or better yet email the results to your buddies who are working rather than flying.

  4. I use sleeving and I always tied the little knot at the end. With my fingers and no bifocal lenses in my sunglasses, I needed that little extra help. Very convenient for undoing the larks head. After reading this thread and having the extra trimming left over, I made several sets of the little loops. Works great. Better than I expected. I will be swapping out knots for these little pulls on my line sets.

    One other advantage to them is the line length. The pulls do not change the overall length like the overhand knots do. No more worrying about putting the knot at the same place on each end of each line.

  5. Still in season, so no deep discounts, but Hallowell's Motel is right next to our breakfast spot, afternoon beer spot and the night fly spot. They still have some rooms available. Motels on the mainland side (Morehead City) will be somewhat less, but you will have a bit more drive to the clinic.

  6. When you pull in the fort area you will pass the path with a gate (for ranger use). Park and walk back to the gate then out to the beach. We should have up feathers and SLKs. PM me and I'll give you my cell number in case any issues come up.

  7. I use the small knots at the end of the loop. Never any issues but a great time saver. I think the sleeving prevents the knot weakening issue. Anyway much better to have the knots for quicker de rigging.
