It is nice to have an assortment of frames that you can switch to match your flying skill and the wind conditions!!:) Nothing wrong with using a little bit stronger frame, if that's what makes you comfortable!!!:) I don't have a set of "greenies" yet, but I use all the frames I have to suit wind conditions!!:) There's lots of opinions that rods like the original RR can take more abuse than thought, but I agree, use the frame you're happy with!! Confidence in your equipment will let you take it closer to the edge!!!:w00t:


I agree Wayne. I used the Green RR in my new Vented Bazzer Eyes with the wind at 8mph and they were great. The sail loaded up just fine. I actually can't wait for some higher winds to test them out :)

I feel that this is the advantage of having several frame sets!! Just because you've chosen a vented kite doesn't mean you're limited to 3 or 4 wrap frames!!:kid_smartass: You can fly vents in very low winds with the proper frame in it!!:kid_content: The rods are so strong, try different frames and see what works for you in your wind conditions!!!:) If you don't try 'em, you'll never know!!!:)
