  1. I was referring to a stack of 2-1.5-1. I have that stack and also a stack of 1.5s full vent , mid vent and standard JB s. And a 2 stack of 1.5 sul s. All are kept together and rolled on the leading edge for storage and transport. All have the 7th line and I often wondered if it was nessesary. I got into stacking to justify having so many rev s , now that's all I fly. Any input is appreciated.
  2. So your saying that you don't need the 7th middle line on a three stack? What about a 3 stack progressive?

    Kite skiing

    Has anyone used a rev or rev stacks to do any form of kite skiing. I have a progressive stack and many 1.5s and I would think that what I already have would pull me on skis. Any input. Thanks Tim
  4. Thank for the reply. I hope to get it together next week.
  5. I didn't know if having 2 1.5s would make a difference. I have some extra kites and I want to leave them together. Also , is it a problem with the stacking lines with different size kites.
  6. Something new to add to this question. Would it be a problem stacking a rev 2 then (2) rev 1.5s and then a rev 1? I just got another 4 1/2 ft stacking lines and would like to just keep these together. Any input would help. Kent if your out there.
  7. Definitely what the John Barresi tutorials with your handles in hand. Also available at kitelife online magazine.

  9. Hang in there Percy and follow the great advice. I bought my first rev 10 years ago and now have all versions of the 1.5. Just wish I would have found these forums back then. Now I have been relearning how to fly the correct way. This year I turn 50 and have more time to fly, so my goal is to hook up with a local kite club. Good luck. Timmyz. Pittsburgh PA
  10. What kind of line do you use to make leader lines? Tim
  11. wow this question really took off. i haven't been at the forum in a few days, so thanks for the advice. since i mostly have light wind conditions i should give kent a call and order a 2 wrap or race rods. tim
  12. thanks for the help. i'll have to give kent (awoc) a call and pick-up a different frame or two for this. i went through the same problem with my 1.5 rev, now i have four 1.5 s and every frame for it. what an addiction. tim from pittsburgh
  13. when stacking two revs , a 1 and a 1.5, can i use my 4 1/2' stacking lines or do i need to go with a 5' set ? thanks tim from pittsburgh
  14. i mainly fly by myself and i thought the sle leading edge would be something i would get the most use out of. thanks tim from pittsburgh
