Hi Maggie! My son has an older Rev2 and I've tried a std "B-2", both a bit too fast for my reflexes at this stage!! I've thought a vented might slow things down enough for me to enjoy rather than survive (I've done enough of that already)!!!Posted Image


Hi Wayne,
Yesterday, see Felix's Blog, we were flying Vented 1.5s with 4 wrap (Ashley and i don't have Mega Vents). It was easy flying solo, because we could lower the kites when the gusts came but when we came to fly team it was more challenging.
The B2 vented with 4 wrap and 120' lines felt so much lighter and was easily controlled, but still lots of fun. If you do a lot of solo flying in high winds, i would highly recommend getting one.

For all updates in the future, please post with this format for 100% clarity:

For me, it would be like this:

If you want, you can always refer to the last updated number for you on the list - militant accuracy isn't the goal, just makes it easier for
me. ;)

not sure exactly what you want....

oyepitsme-+3 (4) or
oyepitsme-+283 (4) or not that at all.

either way, you can add me: 2 Supersonics, 1 Shockwave, and 1 Blast. I fly in Hampton, Va.

I think John wants a string like this: {username}{ - }{+ or -}{number of Revs added or subtracted}{ (total Revs owned after adding or subtracting) }

If it is your first post in this thread, the two numbers would be the same, since you are adding all the kites you now own to a previous total of zero.


Thus if a poster added two revs to his existing five revs he would post "username - +2 (7)".

If it was his first post (and his first Rev) in the Global Rev Count he might post "username - +1 (1)"

Someone selling or giving away one of his 10 kites would post "username - -1 (9)"


The primary source of confusion I see is that the hyphen after username is exactly like the minus sign.
