Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Yea, that is a real problem having Skyburner on hold right now as they sort out some production issues.  Hopefully they will have full production back up soon!!!  I know they have been working very hard on getting things back on schedule.

Thanks Krijn and Gamelord for explaining. I don't do Revs so was a little confused as I screen shot the connector from parts section of Tim's B's pages, which had nothing to do with Revs. I spoke with Daelyn a few days ago in reference to a couple Aura UL's. One for me and friend I sent to your website. He placed his order only to discover NO MORE and will be some time before getting more. thanks, Norm

Yup, c-quad connector.  It has a swivel piece that is on top that needs to be filed/cut off and then you are left with what it shown in the picture.

We have some of these in stock, contact Daelyn at customerservice@awindofchange.com and ask for some c-quad leading edge connectors and she can get them sent to you.

MY completed review with added video..

The Rev Reflex is a different animal indeed. The Springs do change the wing shape and dead launch from face down is almost as easy as a standard reverse launch.  The springs did however also change some of the responsiveness in the very light wind conditions.. When step accelerating a dive, you have the load the wing with a heavier hand at each step and plan again for loading the wing with the dive stop. It's almost like a delayed reaction. I like the larger size but, dislike that I don't have multiple frame options and interchangeability with the other Revs. This kite does makes a big difference at the edges. 

Extreme edge of the window, the kite reacted differently than expected. My guess is I was at the point where the springs were trying to make it float but I was still able to give input via the lines.. Not necessarily a bad thing, just one aspect of this wing that I wasn't expecting. All in All a 5 star experience.  This is a very forgiving kite that will make a difference in the novice flyer and intermediate flyer's hands. I can't speak for the Advanced Kiter or Professional's take, as I consider myself neither of those. Looking forward to more handle time with the Rev Reflex.

About the video.. Some raw footage of putting the Reflex through its paces. This was only my second flight with this kite and it DOES act differently than a typical Rev. I intentionally tried to destabilize the kite at the end and flew it well past apex.. It floated right back into the wind gracefully.

It is a part from a C-quad-connector.
Maybe that helps?

that is correct, the standoffs are meant to angle in

Just bought a mamba I have a question concerning standoffs. Can someone tell me the standard location. I noticed scribe marks on the spreaders are these the location marks. Using them the 2nd location puts the standoff at a angle is this right  ? Thanks. Wow what a nice Kite !
