Spent the entire morning testing and tuning my "Zen" and wanted to share the update with everyone..... :blue-cool: Winds were
1 mph to about 3.5 and it was switching direction every other minute..... I had the basic handle set up where I like them which
is a mild B-Series setting, I had the new "Zen" rods in the kite...... My finding is that this kite is the :censored: big time cause
with very little effort I was right in the zone and had a great time...... My movements were very small in comparison to how I would
normally have to fly in these conditions which for me just made it more of a joy rather than a job to fly in crappy conditions.......
So Family this is just another tool in you bag for those low to no wind days and it takes less work..... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

Good news Ben.

I am looking forward to flying the Zen as I have always enjoyed very light wind flying, especially with those fickle changes in direction that can occur in very small areas 'on the ground'.

Feeling the wind direction on the ground and a different one on the kite has always been of great interest to me...

My unique needs are being permitted, thanks to the ever-cooperative BAz & bEn. I can hardly wait to start flailing with a kite that doesn't need that!

Hmmm! It will be very interesting to flail in slow motion to extract the full 'advantage'! <grins>

I'm with you guys!
Being the flailer I am,,,,,, flying this kite will be like learning to fly <insert Pink Floyd song here> all over again.

Oh Man, that is music to my ears Ben! There are so many days when I have beautiful weather and next to ZERO wind. It just doesn't seem right not to fly. I can't wait to try one of these!!!

Well as we wind down for the year I wanted to close with this thought, no matter what Revolution product you are in the market for I'd ask you to buy from a dealer that supports us as well as you the flier...... :blue-cool: Please remember your support of the brick and mortar stores keeps both them and the
company in business, so please help support the sport and each other and we will do the same..... :blue-cool: I am here for all the problems and headaches
and the stores are here to take your money, we are not a store we are the manufacture and as such there's not a lot I can offer you.... With that said if you
have a problem contact me always and I'll get it handled...... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

I'm assuming that the writing on the Zen is in Japanese for "Zen"?

If not, could you fill me in?

Would make for some nice "ink"!

Ha, it'd be funny if it said something totally different... Like one of those Chinese tattoos gone wrong?

A fellow asked TK to read his tat once (via a photo), turned out it was mirrored (backward). :)

We wouldn't do that to ya though. <grin>
