Which shows you that everyone has their own taste in kites.
But, you were flying in 12 mph wind with - a vented kite and wind breaks and 150 lb line? What are you going to do if the wind get to 18 or 20 mph? I have flown my vent fearless in 12 to 14 mph winds as if it were a standard kite.
Why all the extras to slow the kite down?
Well I wouldn't normally use them in that wind range - just thought I would try them and it all clicked.
In 18 or 20 mph winds Im flying vented Revs!
