This a continuation of my introduction thread found right here
Basically I'm a new flyer who had a paimpol expresso, just got a prism hypnotist (haven't got it in the air yet) and just asking questions around
So my latest inquiry is: Is there a noticeable difference between a brandname dyneema line like the one sold by prism and a dyneema line sold on ebay? (I know dyneema is a brand name. but you get what i mean).
and just because: here's a pic
Got one thnx!
Wanting to buy a used Revolution kite!
Eyeing a 1.5 B-series, midvent, 3wrap. Since it's gonna be a first ever quad, I'll also be looking for handles and lines.
Preference for local deals so we could meet up and skip the hassle of packing for shipping and all that extra effort.
Feel free to PM me too, thanks all and really appreciate it!
Also looking for any 1.5 style rev (Reflex, Classic, vented, etc.) If you're thinking of letting one of your revs go, pm me please! Has to be RTF.
I am looking for a first dual line kite. I have no experience, but could always get those those old plastic grocery store kites to do loops, etc.
I've been looking a bit and I thought that Prism Nexus looked like something that could take me from beginner into entry-level intermediate. After reading on the forums, I'm not so sure.
I'm in the Midwest in the USA, so wind can be a problem, but there's lots of open space in which to fly!
Looking for thoughts, recommendations, and maybe even someone who has a great used beginner kite for sale! I appreciate any advice and direction you're willing to provide!
"Flowers?" you may ask - well I didn't get them for this event, they were already around at the time when receiving the shipment. However this is a happy, problematic and almost solemn occasion.
I stepped into my time machine (not true) to order a new kite from the past (very true). I ordered an un-opened Prism Vapor kite. The kite was sold as #107 (but I don't know I haven't opened it) and the transparent tube contains a signed paper by Mark Reed and Scobie Puchtler (if the kite itself also carries the signatures I don't know). This is over-kill and I don't want this. I mean I very much appreciate having a Vapor, the look is that of pure beauty, I'm really curious how it is to fly it and have really drooled over it also in the past. It's the most collectors kite that I've ever had and that is the problem. This gets in the way of actually using it! How should I use it? Indoor only? Use it in mud and sand (which is how I use kites because a lost kiting opportunity in itself never comes back)? Hang it in the ceiling as a decoration (which I would do if I unrealistically would have several)? But in the end I don't think that there is another kite with its looks and other properties - the only way that I can see is to try it out. But still I can't get it out of my head, i.e. The Clash's hit "Should I stay or should I go?" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmEMMyvZHcw ), but with the text replaced with the alternative text: "Should I fly or should I trade?", again, again and again...
I didn't order any of the Aliens (already got one and used it last Sunday (along with the Elixir) b.t.w.) or the Radians. The Radians (also from a time when the form of a dual stunt kite was less well standardized - compare this to early bicycles or or car models) really look non-standard and most likely feels different to fly from any other kite that I flown. I even still remember them from the catalogue I saw by the end of the nineties. I'm curious, but sometimes you need to chose not to yield to temptation.
