Hi.
I bought a SUL in Italy.
I cames with Climax Profilines.
Are they as good as the genuine Rev lines?

Thanks.

Yes they are fine I have used Climax for a few years with no probs. But if you can get Laser Pro (thats what most people on here use) that would be even better

You just can't use them for counter clockwise turns. That would be anticlimactic. :kid_smartass:

There are several levels of Climax line, I hear the top level pro stuff is pretty good, but I've never tried it.

Hi all,

I received a quad set lines from Vliegers & Co to try and compare to other lines.

The lines are from Skyline and are called Horizon.

Very thin lines, 38 kg, and the structure looks a lot like the Laser Pro lines.

I found them only on this site :

http://www.bilboquet...fs_volants.html

The first impressions are very good, but it is just my own opinion.

Funny thing; I was trying to find out how much turns i could make without losing control and i came to 16 !!
It was very hard to control my Rev but i managed to unwrap my lines again.

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.
