Oh John, that's no fun...........(just kidding & thanks for the additional info) Now for my $.02, well, maybe $.03 OK, I'll start this off, and this post will deal with mainly "Line Measuremen

No rules on how long they "have to be"!

Here's a posting I made several years ago on the Rev forum about stretch and creep that is still valid: ................................. Point of order: Our flying line exhibits both stretch and cr

Just as long as you're not drinking and flying!!! smiley-devil.gif

Of course not. You need both hands to fly a Rev. You must land the kite to drink. Then you can fly again. laugh.gif

And I had to ask!!!! kid_devlish.gif

Y'all are just silly! heehee!

There were either seven of us and six wines, or six of us and seven wines. At any rate there were 42 glasses on that table.

Well, I thought that photo, was the serious Pete...........

I liked the one with you and your laptop, on top of a case........... :wacko:

That's what I like about a Rev, I can execute a controlled landing, much easier than with a dualie.

Pete nailed it - FLY, LAND, DRINK, REPEAT - FLY, LAND, DRINK, REPEAT !!! :wacko:

That, of course, is in the wine cellar, of which you speak so lightly.

(And whatever you may think, **I** am not on top of a case. **I** have a chair.) w00t.gif

Well, I knew that you were in a chair. Possibly I mis-spoke, when I said, "you and your laptop". I was was really referring to "your laptop", as being on the case, and "you", as just being in the wine cellar, again. My mistake ! :blue-confused:

What I meant to say was, "Nice Braces" ! :sign_kitelife:

Now, this topic is getting way off subject......................................:sign_offtopic: So, back to lines & sleeving & measuring & knots & such !! :artist:

You guys are really going to beat me into this, aren't you?

Absolutely. B)

But it's getting pretty bad when your own smiley turns on you and changes his sign to a personal nagging reminder. :kid_smartass:

You just can't trust anyone any more.

A couple of weeks yet before I can pull 75# (to pre-stretch 150# lines), but I am definitely preparing myself mentally for the ordeal.

We know that you can actually do it, we just want to hear, HOW your do it ! confused_1.gif

Oh, and we surely don't want you "busting" anything, that's not suppose to be busted,

So just "Pull a Cork & Kick Back", and type - type - type - type ! :kid_smartass: (and don't use too many of those big words) :happybday:

Actually, I'm just about to leave for dinner (in spite of a tornado watch) at my favorite restaurant, which has an even better cellar than I do.

(I have a heavy car, and will be driving into the wind, so I should see anything coming.)

EDIT: and made it home safe after having a fine dinner and some interesting wine (01 Terricci by Lanciola -- Super Tuscan) followed by a glass of Ferreira 20 YO Tawny Port. (Storm warning is cancelled.)
