  1. I have 2 Revolution KItes ,both B series, I was looking to buy a New Revolution Kite , I have been looking at the Reflex XX and the Tarantula XX. not sure which is the best out of the 2 , any advice would be greatly appreciated . Thanks Nigel
  2. Just a quick question, I have just bought a HQ Little Arrow and I was informed that if I fly in very strong winds, I need to buy stronger lines as the ones that come with the Kite wouldn't be strong enough. If thats the case what would be the best lines to get and length ?
  3. I am looking for a good dual line speed/stunt kite, I have been looking at the HQ Little Arrow, has anybody have any thoughts on this kite or what kite would be good, especially in high winds ?

    New Kite

    That's interesting, I also fly Revolution Kites, as being 70 years old is a little bit more relaxing in so respects , but also fly the dual line kites, perhaps I would be better sticking to the Rev's as I do like flying them.

    New Kite

    Hi am looking to buy a New stunt Kite, I have been flying a Prism Quantum for a while now but would like to get another kite, I have been looking at the Prism Hypnotist & the E3 , also the Quantum Pro but that seem a lot of money, interested in other people opinion on this . Nigel
  7. Ah, good new's I think I have finally sorted the Kite,check all lines and made sure all the lines and bridle are equal. Flew it today and seems to fly now with out spinning,it was quite a strong gusting wind so the Kite seemed very nervous while it was flying.But could be kept under control with out it spinning. Thanks for everybody's advice as it has been very helpful. Nigel
  8. Yes,I have flown the Kite since then,and still the same problem.
  9. I recently bought a John Barresi 1.5 REV, but the kite will constantly spin as soon as it is launched and is very difficult to control, I have been flying my Revolution 1.5 for a while now and have no trouble controlling it,it fly's really well, but the JB 1.5 version just seems so unstable, as so as it is launched the slight's touch on the handles and it goes into a clock wise spin and no matter what I do it won't stop spinning the only way to stop it is to land it. I have looked at all the bridle and frame all seems ok,I use the flying lines and handles on my Rev 1.5 so they are all ok, I am completely baffled by it,the kite was bought from a Revolution Kite dealer (GOKITES) so it is a genuine John Barresi (waited 2 months for it from the States) I suppose it doesn't help that I am not an experienced Rev flyer. I was wondering if there is anybody in the UK that I can send it too, to fly it and hopefully sort the problem out (I live in Somerset) I would obviously pay for the return carriage on the Kite. Thanks Nigel
