I know we did a poll a few months back, but it didn't have everything listed...

I'd love to see what you guys think now! ;)

I went for 4 wrap spars as that is what I fly with the most. Not had a chance to try the Race ones.

Seeing as how I really haven't done much with the Rev I's, Rev II's, the Speed series, or the blast. I had no choice but to go with the Vented B-Series.

I chose the 3 wrap rods because, personally, I prefer a little more pull on my kites. It assures me that It won't be hard to keep up if I decide to go lie down in a lawn chair while flying.

I'll take a 1.5 Vented with Race Rods and slightly modded bridle for 500 Alex :kid_smartass:

Second would be a Vented Super Sonic.

I've really gotten to love the vented kites even in the lowest of wind.

We don't own 2-wrap or race rods (yet) so cannot compare, sorry.

Really curious to try that once the wind has settled down from the mini-gales!

Thanks J, that is mighty kind of you.
I'll be extra, extra gentle: I wouldn't try any new things/stunts, you saw how nervous I was with Primrose (golden B-vented) :blue_blush:

Things break, stuff happens - that's life. Lots of people let other people try their kites at Dunstable and nothing got broken I don't think. It's no biggie. And it's great to be able to properly look at your kite flying.
