Hah Laura! I'm a purist. I'll take my "custom" in the kite.

Walt, when can we get 'em? (and Steve was *dying* to spill the beans on the new "secret" handles...)

Send a PM to Ben, he will give you all the info you need everyone. I am just the manufacturer, Revolution/Ben is the seller. I am glad that Ben and I were able to come to a arrangement to be able to make these Pro Handles available to everyone who wants one!

Yes Walt, good luck. (And Rev of course) I hope you both have a lasting relationship.

I think they look and sound great. Obviously plenty of thought gone into them.

And as they match the standard handles should feel the same, but lighter and no snag.

I like the way the larkshead gos underneath the leadr line so there is no chance of it slipping off.

Dont know if they will be supplied with leaders? I would think anyone wanting these handles would tie thier own leaders up.

You're probably right there Baloo, I've already replaced all mine with 13" leaders with only 5 knots dont really need anymore then that for my style.

Gotta save a few bucks and get me a set of these, Curious as to what they are going for guess I'll find out when i call. B)

Ya, a bit more $$, but it reflects the additional quality labor put in by Walt to make each one by hand. ;)

Worth it, imho... I use these exclusively now.

After setting my own leaders on the New Handles[standerdise leaders,dont start me off] and flying with them.Im gona find it realy hard to use anything else.

They give ya a proper buzz to use.The quality is so good.

Its like decideing which kite to fly.Your old battered sle or your B Series custom.When the winds blowin a warm 7mph across the beech and Stevie W is on the mp3.

As I write this I am taking a break from bonding the foam grips on the handles. In the photo I am comparing the placement of the foam between handles, so they are all the same. I hope to have them to Ben by early next week!

Nice one Walt, just hope you can keep up with demand. Or even better hope the demand is greater than your capacity, keep you out of mischief for a while.

No on second thoughts, hope it keeps you ticking over nicely, giving you time to make old and new stuff while still getting out in the wind when you want to.

Hi Walt, Is it me or do those look low off the top?

Hey what do I know? you probably have measurements from Rev anyway.

I'll feedback when I've had a play with mine.

Looking good B)
