Kevlar wrap, very nice... You, me and Todd (from iQuad) are the only guys I know who have 'em.

A real treasure. ;)

YEP! :D I couldn't beleive it when Ben contacted me and offered me these stunning custom kevlar handles.
I've been wearing a smile from ear to ear ever since I got the beauties :D
I am extremely fortunate and very appreciative of such a generous gift. THANKS AGAIN BEN :)

Yes you did ant, and that's why I'm happy that you won.
To be quite honest, as much as I Love that beautiful kite of yours, I would have felt real bad if I had won, since you were the one that convinced me to enter. :)
So Thank You! B)

Baloo, I would trade the snow for a hot sandy beach any time.
Somehow the lake just doesn't cut it, and the snow and cold in the winter sucks.

I can't speak for you ant, but if it was me, I would be flying it often :)
Yes it is a work of art, but it is afterall, meant to be flown.
You can still hang it out on display between flights ;)

I'm sure you are going to have lots of fun with your stunning new masterpiece.
Just take LOTS of pictures.
I'm sure by the time your son is old enough to fly, i'm sure you will have more than enough beautiful kites in your collection to get him started ;)

Yep Ant, you just GOT to fly it. Hang it when you aint flying it, but hang it in the shade, you dont want it fadeing!!

I am with you on the beach thing Stryker. If only for some clean wind.

Happy to hear :)
You must be beaming from ear to ear :D
I'm just happy (and I'm sure Ben is too) that the kite went to someone like yourself who is a real Rev fan and can and does really appreciate the stunning kite for what it really is, ....... A MASTERPIECE :)

I am just very grateful I have my beautiful custom kevlar handles. That was very unexpected and appreciated. I had only 1 set of handles I was using for all my kites, till these beauties came along. :D :blink:
