Re: Revolution reflex?

Yeah, that's what I figured. Did you just flip the rods around, or did you have a second set of rods without the springs? I haven't tried removing the springs - maybe they just slide out. I probably wouldn't want to have the springs on the back if I wasn't using them.

Re: Revolution reflex?

Also just re-read the earlier reviews from Jeff & Mike. I think we're all finding the same things. Just wanted to add that I also needed to add more brake, just like Mike Kory found out at Kite Party. I had to find the right knot - I started three knots further out than I was using Sunday on my ...

Re: Revolution reflex?

Here's a picture in flight; please forgive the bad cell phone picture resolution. Had a hard time flying one handed in light wind.

Re: Milwaukee - Family Kite Fest

Had another great day on Sunday. Two really nice days in a row. Mostly flew the shook 75% (mid vent). Even flew some single line stuff . . . .

Re: Revolution reflex?

Tried out the new kite today in bumpy light winds on short lines (about 40 ft). It's interesting and different than a 1.5. Not as truck-like as the Rev 1, not quite as agile as the 1.5, but that's to be expected since it's about halfway between in sail size. I think I need more time on the handles t...

Re: Milwaukee - Family Kite Fest

I was there today with my son David and one of his friends, and (from IKE) Xay and Mark (plus a whole bunch of WI kiters, Chicago Fire, Fire & Ice, Blues Bros, etc.). Started out cloudy with wind, then cleared up and the wind stayed pretty good all day. A bit bumpy, but almost the whole day on m...

Re: Revolution reflex?

I have a client with an office a few miles from rev, as it turns out. I stopped at rev on my way to the client the first day, then snuck out for a bit to visit the toy store on my second day to pick up some spare parts. Couldn't hold back on buying when I saw the IKE/180Go colors on my second stop. ...

Re: Revolution reflex?

Hmmm.....I seem to have found one on my recent business trip; it is team colors..... But will live in my kite bag.

I was in Poway on business. Impulse purchase.... Hard to say no when you are standing in the candy store. I might bring it to ND if the team kite hasn't arrived yet.

Re: Revolution reflex?

I know we've been in contact with Lolly, but unfortunately, the team does not have a Reflex yet. I don't know if we'll have one by Jamestown.

Re: 3rd Saturday May, June, July, and August

Awesome! Unfortunately, I can't be there as I have to take care of some stuff for my father (and same June weekend). July I think I'm out of town with the family. Maybe August . . . . That said, this is totally a bookmark so that I can see who posts up stuff from the events! Glad to see someone host...

Re: Fair Oak Farm - Saturday May 14

Fair Oak Farm wore me out! Cold, and LOTS of wind. Wore my winter coat and gloves all day. Not a lot of attendees due to cold, wind, clouds. There were plenty of Wisconsin Kiters there, along with 180Go!, the Windjammers, Blues Brothers, Chicago Fire, and Fire & Ice. Good grilled cheese . . .

Re: it's very quiet

Update on Wheaton for tomorrow - David has tech crew in the morning, and soccer in the afternoon, so if I make it to the Wheaton festival it will be at most from about 1030 to noon.

Re: it's very quiet

Sunday is mother's day, so I'd be pushing my luck to fly. But I might push my luck.
