I've had a set since.... well maybe thats not important. :blushing:
But I can tell you these handles are AWSOME. JB says fly clean ;)
I say get a set of these handles and fly dirty. :lol: You really have to flip the handles to snag with them. And their light enough to replace indoor handles.
And they are durable. I personally had these handles in at least 36 mph winds with gusts that well... were real damn hard. I'd say at least to 40 once or twice. No damage done. Still just as perfect as the day Walt made em for me.
Saturday at the Long Beach Clinic for those who don't know it was a very windy day. B) With as hard as it was pulling, I'd say the handles took some serious testing. How many people would pump the kite for extra speed in those winds? :wacko: Don't know why, but I did.

Great handles. Everyone should have at least a pair. Hmmmmmm, maybe there could be a ready to fly B Pro package? B Pro, Pro handles with 120's? Just a thought.

How about a Pro package, and a Pro Suite package (with STD, MID, VTD, two sets of handles, 120'x90#, 120x150#). <grin>

Those new handles are awesome; too bad they didn't have any at AWOC when I was there.

I realize it's not nearly as fashionable as these lovely aluminum handles, but I made my own no-snag handles out of standard Rev 13" handles using Stone in Shoe Bob's method listed in this thread:

http://www.revkites....?showtopic=1065

Some pictures of my implementation of this wonderful idea can be seen here (for some reason, the Rev Forum gallery upload thingy wasn't being kind to me, and the image upload thingy doesn't like Facebook links):

http://www.facebook....8...062&l=c05bf

I used a #10-12 wall anchor plastic thingy from Home Depot and a #12 1&1/2" wood screw with a round head and no threading (just polished, smooth metal) up to about 3/8" from the head.

Took about 10 minutes or so for the mod (including filing down the rough edges at the ends of the handles) and did not have to permanently alter the handles in any way; used the stock holes on the endcaps and put the hog clip thingies in a plastic bag in case I ever need them again for whatever reason.

And the leaders are my own creation; 150lb polyester sleeving with 200lb Kevlar core cannibalized from the original lineset for my TOTL Spinoff from 1988. The kite my late father gave me; FSM rest his soul. :innocent:

<3,

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Not really sure on the weight, but I think when Ben released these finally, they were about 20 grams lighter than the stock 13" handles.
