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
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!
My name is Jason, I am from Melbourne Australia.
I was recently introduced to a 2 line stunt kite by my brother in law, and I was hooked! I did some research online and am now the proud owner of a Prism Quantum and a 75 foot tube tail.
I have had a few outings with it already, and I am sure you are probably not surprised to learn that I am already waiting on replacement center T as a result of some high speed soil samples.
So in the meantime I was hoping for some advice and suggestions!
What would you consider "must have" accessories?
Is there a list of stunts or some sort of order that I should start learning them in? Good online resources for said stunts? (other than this one!)
General tips and tricks for total noobs?
Relating to the Quantum:
Any suggested mods, tips or tricks?
What parts are most prone to breaking?
Thank you in advance!
This workshop is specifically tailored for first time, beginner and intermediate quad fliers who want to try their hand at team flying - if you're able to launch, hold a basic upright hover for a few seconds, fly a little left, a little a right and back down to the ground (land), you're ready for this class!
It is strongly suggested that you have attend (or have attended) one of our past Quad Clinics or Rev 101 sessions, as there is key equipment knowledge (set up, etc) that really should precede team flying.
Fliers MUST bring 120 ft lines to participate, as team flying requires everyone to be on matching length lines.
Registration is $175 per person ($150 for KiteLife Subscribers) to participate over the full weekend of learning.
Schedule is 10a-4pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Fliers bring their own equipment, and we do generally break for lunch in the middle of the day - DO bring some rain gear in case we get sprinkled on.
Before then, I strongly encourage you to browse these FREE video tutorials for some pre-workshop study...
Hope to see you there!
