I am unfamiliar with east coast vendors, but you can always order online from www.thekiteshoppe.com through Theresa in Vancouver, WA. However, it is definitely worth checking out local shops to support them.

Just to clarify, the B-Series Pro comes in Full-sail, mid-vent, and full-vent. The full sails would be used in light winds but would not be labeled "SUL." I am not familiar with the difference in sail fabric from the rev 1.5 SUL and the B-Pro, but any difference there may be is insignificant, and will not make a major impact on its ability to fly in light wind. I have flown a full sail B-Series (with bridal) indoors without much trouble, so a B-Series Pro ought to get you by in light wind perfectly fine.

Hope that helps :)

Hi Jose,
I have that exact model (you're interested in) and will be at Liberty State Park this weekend, if you want a test fly. (fri, Sat, Sun)

You can try out some bridle alternatives & the "magic sticks option" too. See what you actually prefer based upon direct comparison, . . . which one feels better and why?

The SUL difference is in the weight of the leading edge sleeve's material. (Standards are 3.9 ounce dacron vs. 1.5 ounce nylon for the SUL model) My attitude is you might as well get 'em as light in weight as possible! If you want more mass, then go to heavier sticks, hang-on some lights or add rare earth magnets (want lock 2 together in flight?, this works so slick!)

I've ordered my kites thru Scott Weider for the last several years with complete satisfaction. He has obtained SUL B-Series Pros in each available configuration as well as a highly customized Zen, all in matching color graphics. He offers pre-made magic sticks and is a marvelous example of what possible if you add 'em to your kite package. Might as well try before you buy and see the grand-master himself in live action. Heck he'll show you how all the tricks are done and the whole thing won't take 5 minutes. You won't look like him

I'll be going up there with Jim Cosca and hangin' with the LSP gang. We should have a howling good time chasing each other around the fields doing individual demos and team-stuff. Come out and join us, you're welcome to spank anything in my bag, from delicate indoor models to freight-train tough high winders.

Heck, I might even carry the baby-revs along, so you can see extremely these fast little buggers whizzing around to stevie ray vaughn type sound-tracks (or flight of the bumblebee, HA!)
