I think you missed the link Babbman! Here is Kent's post on the power kite topic... http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/viewtopic.php?t=244 Babb is 100% on the mark; these kites deserve MUCH respect (I almost learned the hard way last year in Naperville :( ). The 6M will be a joy to fly in LIGHT winds, bu...

I don't know if I missed anything, but if you are looking for a single purchase to cover MOST of our flying conditions, without a doubt, I would STRONGLY suggest a standard Barresi series(I own one and LOVE it!!)

I'd say, go with the standard B series. It comes with 2 and 3 wrap spar sets, and from what I've read, the B is only a half ounce more than an SUL. From the rev site- Wind Range: 3-10 mph (2 wrap frame) 4-16 mph (3 wrap frame) 6-20 mph (3 wrap frame w/2 wrap LE added) Wing Span: 91" Frame(s): 2...
