    Who doesn't like driving a Ferrari at what ever speed ? For about two and a half years I've flown my B2 on 15 meter 84 lbs line, NO problems and love it.

     EXPERIMENT and find what suits you best ....mix and match lines frames etc.... I have done exactly that . I have yet to hear from someone who writes Whooow what a crazy idea I must try that ? Have I expected to much from the www.revkites forum?  I also fly my new Rev Spider with these lines and love it! 



    Not sure you mean "expect too much from the forum" I mean, feel free to fly whatever you'd like. I was just clarifying that you meant 300 pound lines. In 25 years of flying Revs, I'd just not even seen a 300 pound line quad set, let alone fly on one ;-)  Have fun, you certainly aren't doing anything wrong.

  2. Many of you will have seen the NEEW Eagle kite on Facebook, but, yhe product page and info page are now live, and the kite is ready for pre-order!

    Also worth noting, 2020 brings new colors to the Revolution Spider RX and Super Spider RX!

    The re-working of the site and integration of this forum is good news...

    The development of the reflex is very interesting but a bit graphically challenging.  Somehow the idea of setting a specific arrangement of sail panels is 'a bit interesting' historically <grins>

    I think the arrangement I came up with for a "mid vent" version of the kite will work out quite nicely. We'll find out shortly!

    Can the spider web reinforcements be tied into the leading edge sleeve so there isn't such a long strip of mesh without reinforcement? I seems like the mesh is the weakest link; once a tear starts, it keeps going even with super gluing.

    You know, that's an excellent idea, I'm going to pass that along. Done, mocked up a quick idea and sent it into Dave, Joe and Lolly for comments.

  6. Hey all, just as a quick note, Joe graciously let me get my hands on the new VERY vented Reflex (tentatively called the Super Spider Web at this point) while we were down at Rich Comras's memorial party. This kite should be available pretty soon and damn, it flew well. It kept up to any other very vented kite out there and pull wise, it's roughly about the same amount of pull as the XTRA vent. I'll get some pictures and a better review soon but, Joe and I also talked about a mid vent Reflex as well!  I sent Joe back with a few tweaks to this new kite, so, hopefully it will ready to go soon!  Quite a handful of people took it for a fly and they loved it.


    Other things on the go over the next while, We're going to redo the Rev store site entirely over the next few weeks, and at the same time, we will roll the forum back over to the same site. An unfortunate bunch of missteps caused the separation last year and I am looking to fix this. The forum URL will change slightly to match the .com site however, that will be it as far as the forum goes. (I may undertake to dress the place up a little bit too!)

    thanks all!
