Therein lies your mistake. Kites are sensitive creatures and do not take well to being ordered around. You should have asked for it to come to you. ;)

Hi,

Thank you for the happy b-days, officially 45 trips around the old sun now. I talked to Corey at Wind Power Sports and found out the color I wanted, teal and black, would arrive at his shop early next week, and he will ship it out as soon as he gets it. I am also waiting on the line (3300ft spectra) for my single line high flier setup, but I may go out and put the Ascension up on the 400-500 ft of Dacron I have just to get the kite used to flying. :kid_smartass: I know, single line.....BORING......but I like any kite, and relaxing in a lawn chair having a carbonated beverage and shooting the breeze with friends is a nice way to spend a afternoon.

I have been doing my research on tying knots and how to sleeve line, looks like a sleeving needle or a guitar string is on my to buy list. Hopefully by the time I get this Rev out to fly the first time, I will know what not to do! :sign_kitelife:

Hello RS67Man,
Welcome to this mad Rev world. You seem to like the fishing crossover for kites so you may be interested in 2 of my tricks. I use a thin wire leader to do my sleeving. (You will need something that thin for the next step)I also used braided 100 lb fishing line for sleeves. It's thin, lite and has worked great for quite awhile. I had it all laying around the garage so the cost was nil :D too. I'm sure with all the tid bits you get here you will find the set ups, equipment, and flying techniques that work best for your individual flying. My favorite reason to read this forum is all the different ideas to choose from. I probably at least try 90% of the things I see here.
