Well after 2 days of owning this Race Frame I can tell you this.




























They Look Good :kid_cussing: , of course you know Murphy's Law buy light rods get 15-25mph winds from then on :kid_brooding: but they look purty :kid_brooding: they feel very light :kid_brooding: the decal is very well done :kid_brooding: I think if this wind doesn't ease up I'm indoor testing them at the High School basket ball court :confused!:

See Antman there are worse things then waiting for Race Rods :kid_brooding:

Well, I finally got to try the Race Rods today 3-7 mph winds flew my vented right along side of SUL's and a B-series with a 2 wrap kept right up and flew like it didn't have vents.

Pretty cool, more testing to come :kid_smartass:

Nice day Art and Beth, Doug Cotes, inkslinger, Stevie Lopes, my 2 sons and myself, great time, now all we need are the same length lines :kid_brooding:

Just gave my new race rev spars the ultimate test. Spent last week with my b-series vented kite with new race spars letting anyone & everyone test drive the kite and learning to fly! The newbies crashed into everything they could and smacked the ground pretty hard at all angles until they could keep the kite airborne and after five days I never suffered a loss of equipment and actually helped about 25 or more people learn to fly. The kites performed flawlessly and everyone enjoyed the way they felt (imagine learning to fly with a b series and race rods!) :kid_content: A very rewarding experience and I thank Ben and Revolution for giving me the opportunity to share with others. Race rods rock! I flew them in all conditions from 20+ winds to as light as possible without a complaint in standard & vented kites. I may never fly anything else.

I absolutely love the race rods. I flew a demo with a standard custom appliqued rev that is somewhat heavy in 3 mph....with no problem at all..and then turned around the next day and flew the same kite, in about 18 mph for another demo.. They are tough buggers, and they handle beautifully. Great jobbbbbbbb with the race rods.

well flyers i got my race rods and took them out tonight at a small field by my house the winds were at a stand still i had my 1.5 STD with the race frame in it with my 50 foot lines and all i have to say is....THESE THINGS ARE F###KIN SICK ....the fact that i was doin all of my rev moves in still air with a 1 mph gust here and there a simple step back and the kite is airborn.. i really think without a bridle it can be flown indoors who here has tried that??? im gonna :kid_devlish: hats off to rev for makeing these rods ... they are the best truly the best
