Yes! Another Blast owner.

Make sure when you set the kite up that the spars are threaded between the bungies and the kite sail. Otherwise they can tear through the sail when a good gust hits the kite.

Good point Alden ... its pretty clearly stated on the DVD but worth repeating.... and I'm sure you've watched the DVD a hundred times waiting for that bridle Fenman!

Do you think there's enough of us 2~4 owners now to have a Power Series area all of our own ... I mean the stackers do ..... but wait what happens when we stack our 2~4's ...Hmmm ....

John if your reading this how about it .....maybe I will start a survey to see how many of us there are....

The 2-4 owners are taking over,Jonesey do you think the 2-4 drags you deeper into the darkside?? for where i alive I get a lot of low winds and i think i will use this a lot more than a UL

I love the DVD that came with the Blast its a well thought out aid,and yes i did set the kite up, as normal being a man set kite up,then watch dvd,oopppss

ok, I have been doing some lurking since my first few posts (as well as enjoying my 1.5 SLE).

I have to confess that I have a Blast too - a superb kite - especially in 20+ mph winds ! Also flies in remarkably low winds (a slide machine).
At our recent power kiting / buggying day people were most impressed with the Blast - (not as impressed with the pilot !!).

A few orders went in the following week.....

The mix of precision and power is great - although I am still getting used to it - the cut over from precision to power can sometimes surprise me !

Great fun though these Rev's...........glad I took the plunge...

cheers

steve

Nope, as a team name that doesn't work for me, although I can see where you are coming from with the 'without manly toys'. Nice quick edit by the way, but not quite quick enough
