After a trip to San Diego a couple of years ago I fell in love with Quad line kites. I have been looking at them every since. I have not had the available money or time to do anything about my want so I waited. I have Watched JB do all kinds of kewl things with a quad and I wanted to be able to do half of what he can do.
So, I bought a Reflex a few weeks ago and I have had a hard time getting out to fly it. I finally got time off work last week to go out but the winds were not all that great and I felt like an old man in a nursing home, I wanted to get it up cause all the signs were there but it just wouldn't happen. Come to find out I also had the springs on the wrong side. Needless to say I have not given up but in the meantime I was looking for a good ground stake and I found Ocean Shore Kites. Wonderful people there, and I talked myself into a Freilein Vertigo. What are your thoughts on this kite? I know it is not a Revolution but will it handle the knocks of a newbie for a year or so and do the fly as decent as a Revolution?
Also I am going to be in San Diego on the 12-18th of August. I am planning on taking both the Reflex and the Vertigo with me. Is there a get together that weekend on the 12th any where near San Diego?
