That was a part of our solution for a 1point6 no-sew as well. The deeper Vee has been used since 1999 by the no wind gang in Washington DC. Adding the long throw handles and 50# line sets completes the picture.

Ahhh, the deeper V.
I suggested this mod years ago and they laughed at me!
Y'all should listen to Papa Smurf :P

Our minds must have been moving in paralel mike, albeit with mine a while behind yours. I seem to recall going down the same route a couple of years ago. Ended up giving the prototype to someone on the east coast, who I hope is loving it.

Those youngsters never have ears for us oldies Papa Smurf ;)

Shouldn't your mind be working about 6 hours ahead or so?

Here are some comparison pics between a Zen and a Rev 1.
I have video of some iQuad Zen routines that I will be uploading shortly.


Wow that really isn't much more added to the center is it, but that trailing edge looks sweet.

Bazz send me like version 2 from way back :blushing:

Have you ever seen some of the very early prototypes? Some were made with plastic trash bags.

Cowboy has probably called me three times now going on about this kite.

Just start selling it already! I think there will be a revolt if it isn't for sale before the end of the year.

Now that would be interesting to see. Trash bags actually make pretty decent kites can be very light and strong.

You meant no harm, but until the kite is released, it's best that we not draw anyone a map. ;)

I'd take down the B-Series colorizer than John. That would be easier to manipulate for those who do steal that type of stuff.

The colorizer isn't to actual specification/proportion...

And the only colorizer image posted thus far was originally made for the 1.5 sized B, not for the Zen (identical paneling).

Good eye though, thanks. ;)

Whew, thought I'd foppaed again. I never did get an answer, but if I remember right there was and maybe still is only 3 color choices for the center panel? White, black and grey with black logo? If so, I took the time and somewhere under open topic there is all 3 templates. White, black and grey center panels. The other question I had is, would someone in the know look and tell me if the grey center panel is correct? Probably not the exact shade I know, but does it look right as an open template?
Oops, actually I may have to post them before you could look. :P

One of Mario's kites has a bright yellow center. Looks kind of cool.

Hmmmmmmm, Bazzer told me about there only being 3 center panel color choices. Maybe things have changed. Wonder if it's a factory logo or airbrushed. Course I always try to be original with all my kites. And they, as in Bazzer and JB both flat told me "NO, you cannot have a center panel like that. We all as a group designated 3 different colors only........" Forget why, something about uniformity maybe. Course this is what I originally wanted my Pro to look like. :lol:

I'm a dork I know, but I really wanted it at the time. :huh:
