Hi!
I am new to Powerblasts and would like to know if anyone is using some kind of harness or other tool to fly a power blast 2-4 or 4-8.

I have never flown a powerblast myself but I could imagine you do not need one. It, being a Rev, you can adjust the the pull with your handlesand if you are not a total lightweight you will be able to fly this kite. You might want to go south a few kilometers an find a quiet Italien sandy beach (If there is such a thing) and get draged around a bit.... Lots of fun::lol:

I don't agree, even if "yes we can" !

You can use just about any of the harness's used for buggying for the PB series.  I find that I need to be createive in how I connect the strop (connecting link line between the handles).  Normal power kites usually connect right off the upper part of the handles right behind the upper flying lines.  With the Rev's, I find the best comfort and control moving this connection point down a bit lower, especially on the 4-8.  It can be done and is great for "Park & Ride" flying but for racing or max speed, I find I do best unhooked.

 

Be sure you have a safety disconnect system if hooking in. :)

Only one safety system: hands!

 

But nobody is perfect...

(Most of the time, I am not hooked when going down wind, and hooked when going upwind)
