Hi John, congrats on your iquad success, I was just wondering about the handles you are using in this picture

I've never seen the handles so long on top. What are the benefits, and can I buy a set from Rev? I don't know why but I just have to try them! :D

LOL clrizz!

Busted... Those aren't Rev handles. :shock:

We had made an unexpected stop to fly on that pier... We only had one set of Rev handles with us, but JD had a set of handles he uses for fly two dual line kites with.

That's what I was on, and I don't recommend them.  :?

You don't say!?  And here I thought they were some special custom built something or other from Rev.

They did LOOK cool, though. 8)

It was SO wierd... After nearly 16 years on the 13" Rev handles, it didn't feel natural at all.

Of course, I don't really care for anything larger or smaller... 13" handles have gotten me an AKA national championship in Masters Quad Precision for the last 3 years in a row (flying a Rev I in '04 and '05, and a 1.5 in '06)... Why change now?
