Of course, now I feel kinda silly because I missed the ending the first watch through it ;-)

Sorry about the  leading edge. I did something very similiar indoors against a basketball hoop this winter

Rock on counterstrike!  

If you ain't breakin', you ain't flying!

Just a tip, when it's ripping that hard (wind)... Try lengthening your top lines an inch, maybe two.  It will give you a little more control, and keep the kite from lunging forward so aggressively.

Nice work though, keep it up! ;)

The 1.5 handles are the same size as the EXP, however the foam grip is better on the handles that come with the 1.5. (slightly thicker and better feel)

im wondering what your opinin is
i just got a new supersonic

can i just use the stock lines and handles from that - to fly an SLE ?

or would it be better to get the SLE with everything included.
