Looking to add a Quad line to my collection, Looking at a Rev JB series, I have a couple of questions to those how have been flying them for awhile, I have flown Georges once it had the race frame (Nice, fun kite), for a beginner he said I did pretty well. The areas I need help with would be,
1 - Vented or STD
2- Line recommended
3 - Handles
The reason I mention Vented is because I here it flys pretty low and with the right setup and it goes pretty hi.
Thanks
John

John,
I'd say you flew very well.
I now have a Mid Vent that might be just what your looking for. If you'd like to give it a try let me know.

Hey Geo.
How have you been, what would you recommend for my first Rev? What is the wind range of the mid vent?

Hey John,
I'm doing well, thanks for asking.
JB is the guy to ask. But for me the standard with all the framing options is the way to go. I like the mid vent for here in the valley, it seems to do well with the bumpy winds.
You know I have a bag full and you are welcome to fly any of them. If you can't make it down, I'll ship you a couple to test drive.

Hey Geo.
How have you been,..  Grin

Hey John...

A standard 1.5 is a great place to start. 75-85' x 90# lines, 13" handles.
Race rods are a great addition to get you down into lower winds flying.

A full vent 1.5 could very easily become your best friend on those 10+ mph days.
3 or 4 wrap rods would suit you just fine for a long time with this kite.

And as George mentioned the mid-vent, Great for everything in between.

i'd recommend buying in the order listed.

Be careful though, you might find yourself only packing rev's to the field 90% of the time like me.  Shocked

Hey John,

I've got a bunch o' Revs also if you ever want to try one out.  My 1.5 in in the progressive stack I've been working on currently, but I could always throw on the bridle & you're set.
