Too volatile, and it could endanger your sail.

Use your 3 wrap spars. If the wind is too high, switch to a vented. We also use 3 wrap in the vented Revs. If the wind is too strong for that, we slide a 2 wrap leading edge in above the 3 wrap.
We now use the big SLE rods for staking our tomatoes. They make great pea shooters too.

Tell ya what, send me a vented 1.5, I won't even ask for a B series, and I will pay for shipping!

This made me laugh as my own Dad does the same thing! He's always telling me "you can't fly a kite without a tail", Snickers!
I'm hoping someone got a pic of me being dragged around yesterday with a kite with a tail
It just shows, it doesn't matter what age you can still share this great hobby and learn together
