Ya, the axel catch, or the McTasty, as I'm humorously calling it. <grin>

Kite does roughly 540 rotation nearly overhead, and comes down to the flier, left wingtip first...

Bridles and lines come out untangled on the throw back.

I'm hitting it 9 out of 10 times, so it's tried and proven. :)

Honestly, I think I'm calling it a/the Striker, as it most resembles a thunder clap and lightning strike in my mind.

Will try to get video online at some point, maybe a tutorial in the Kitelife subscribers area?

Hey, on that topic, thought about it a lot, there's just NO WAY I'm going to be able to fit a full length Advanced Rev DVD into my schedule, but it is totally feasible to start putting specific tutorials online in the Kitelife subscribers section, sorted by name, etc... Would anyone be interested in this?

Kite care and handling, assembly, tutorials on all skill levels and many variables of Rev flying (individual, team, dogstake, short line, etc, etc, etc).

Kitelife subscription rates are $2.95 monthly, $16.95 every 6-months and $32.95 yearly... All videos can be downloaded to YOUR computer for viewing anytime, and these would be available in MP4 format, ready for iPod/iPhone usage.

Let me know, I'll go for it if I get enough demand...

You have got demand from me John. Would be a cOOl idea.

Yes T, approximately 30' of 90#. :)

Works well for 3-D flying, small spaces and is still long enough to play with fine control.

Hey John...
Though it would be great to have an advanced DVD of everything, it would be cool to have access to it all on your website :sign_kitelife: .
So, you've got my vote!
Take care...

I bet you folks had a great time a the clinic - I wish I could have made it - unfortunately it was the same weekend as the "Rod Run to the End of the World" in Long Bch, WA. I would love to see some pics. Hopefully I can make the next one.

Nice picks.

I am fairly sure I recognise the dance in the one.

Is that the blender dance. I am sure I saw it last at Portsmouth.

Good to see the Clinic went well.

I hope that everyone at Portsmouth and Bristol 2008 were arranged safely.

I have the pin from 'way back when' which will have to be auctioned sometime soonish.
