Title: Tails?
Post by: kiteflyer82 on June 14, 2010, 07:23 PM
Can anyone suggest the best tails for rev's, and where the best place to get them?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have a 30 foot black tail about 2" in width. Typically tied in a U-shape:

Black goes with everything.
Not my kite, just on loan for pictures.

Thank you. Where is the safest place to tie them on the rev?

Google "45 foot gkpi skywriter tails"

I use them on both my dual line and Revs. IMHO they are fantastic tails. Look very smooth and follows the trajectory of the kites pretty well.

For Revs I just tie them on both wingtips at the bottom, ala John's pictures.

Get some matching colours with your kites and they look really awesome with the right combination  8)

Gomberg 45' Skywriter or 100' Skywriter Rainbow tails on the wing tips makes for really neat double helix when spinning:) Transition tails look good too but are kinda heavy.
