This weekend I took some of the extras out of the bag that went in for Kite Party. What's left is:

BMK Mamba Std.
BMK Mamba UL
HQ Midi UL
HQ Midi SUL
PBSK Stiletto
PBSK Bad Boy vented
Prism Micron
Prism Vector
Chicago Fire 3/4 FireBee
Tournay Ginga
PKC Flick
Layang iFlight2
Willie Koch 11' Delta

What's missing is a real SUL. The Vanishing Point, TTUL and Sweety which are normally in the bag are all in various stages of disrepair. (TTUL just has a worn out standoff/sail fitting, don't worry about your baby, Steve)

Quads have theirr own bag these days:  Smiley

Rev 1.5 Std with Race frame
Rev 1.5 Vented with various frames
Rev 1 Sue Sedgewick
Rev 2 JB Beater
Rev Shockwave

I currently have 2 bags. A "rev" bag and an "others" bag. Both live in the boot of my car.

I am leaving the rev bag closed while I learn to fly my duallies. So my current "A" bag has in it:

Temptation Std and UL
Callisto 6' Rok
All made by KaoS (Kevin Sanders)


Prism Zero G
Rev B2 Std with Magic Sticks
Rev SLE Std which is my "Street Use" kite.

The duallie line sets are:
#50 x 100
#90 x 20, 50, 80 and 100

The Revs I use on #90 x 30

I think the Rok is on somewhere near 300 feet of Dacron.

I mainly use the std line for the G but have some super fine dental floss stuff for those "light" days...
