Hi guys and gals,
I am new flyer in the sunshine state (US Florida) I have just gotten back into kiting. Since was kid. I am older now lol grey hair and all. Been doing quite a bit of diy stuff. And having a ball. Been steadily flying single liners but have the bug for duals. Again just saying hi now and learning the forum. I have seen some threads about which kites are recommend by you guys to get into stunting. But I was wondering if it might be more beneficial to start on a parafoil. Instead of a Delta. No frame to break. Lol does anyone have any thoughts on one verse the other. I am old school and haven't touched a dual line kite. So have lots to learn. If this is answered somewhere else please point me in the right direction. Also does anyone know if there are any kite clubs in central Florida. I saw something about TIKK but they haven't posted anything since 2014. Thanks in advance
I currently have a dual line, Prism Quantum, which I enjoy flying very much. Thinking of picking up a used Rev Exp off the forum for my low wind days. Would this be a good beginner quad to learn on as I have never flown quad before? Are these kites really good for no/low wind?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
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'm aware the go-to material for quads like revs are the 3/4oz icarex ripstop nylon.
But anyone can help with determining the thread count and density of such .75oz ripstop rev sails use? Assuming 1sqm or sqf.
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!
