Can you explain the difference between the series 1,2, and 3D please?

Thanks 

Hi, yes I can 😉

The only difference is in the colors.

The S1 and S2 series use solid colors. The 3D series uses gradients, which gives a 3D / relief effect.
The Customs series contains all models colored by customers.
Even though there are now over 300 models available on the website, there are actually only 3 types of sails: UL, HVTD and VTD.

A bit late(only 2 yrsemoji12.png) but once Polo went solo I did get myself a UL and I never shared a pic of my custom job.

Sharing the result my colorizer work:

The idea of the design is an inner glow inside a cage/basket of cast iron. While still making use of the colour gradients available, the end result should be relaxing to the eye. Polo Kites spotted that I had used gold instead of orange (hard to see in the editor) on just one pair of the panels and kindly assisted with advice before the design was finalized. Now the time of agony has begun – the long waiting for the kite to be finished and shipped...

I have always imagined that if I’d ever get a Polo quad it would be a vented one. From quite early on when learning to pilot quads this video with its very distinct kite movements served as an inspiration/goal:

But considering that my Rev B-series std is almost worn out while the mid vent is just a little worn and the full vent is hardly worn, it is the UL (Custom) I “need” (want). Also considering that I’m going to use this kite for many many hours I chose a custom one so I could have the graphics just the way I want.

So I originally imagined getting a Polo for high wind, but seem to have ended up on the other side of the wind spectrum. Most of the time in no/low wind I’m using the Rev Indoor, but once I receive the new quad, it is going to be interesting to try the low wind properties. Indoor piloting by Polo Kites:

Not very much footwork seems to be required (if using a proper technique of course).

While at it, I ordered a set of T1s to try out no/low/rather low wind T1-T2-frame combos. Crystal T2s come with the UL quads by “optional default” to my understanding. Having access to various frames is something I first learned to appreciate with my set of B-series Revs, where two sets of frames with different stiffness were included per kite.

Thank you Exult for this feedback 🙏
