Here's a pic of my new Vented B-series' first flight. This pic was taken with my phone, but I still love it!

Allready posted a congrats on Kitelife. Shame that ticket didnt work, second thoughts maybe good it didnt. Dont think the joy could have been contained.

As I said on Kitelife, welcome to the B Dark Side, it is more precise.

I didn't feel any difference from a B-Series vented to a Regular 1.5 vented with the same frame, am I missing something here ?

I was under the impression the Vented B-Series was made just to match the Standard, seeing as most of us like to have matching sets, well aside from the extra frames and handle setup.

Now I have to test again, :censored: lol you people are evil doing this stuff to me.

You can really tell the difference between a vented and non vented in an area like mine, because of the gusty winds. Compared to a nonvented kite, you don't feel the gusts as much on a vented. It's a good feeling.

Spence I was comparing the Reg Vented to the B-Series Vented, and yes there is a tremendous difference between a standard and vented kite even in the lightest of wind.

You will do great with the versatility of the different options you have with the 3 and 4 wrap frames, don't be afraid to mix them up as well I have been experimenting with different configurations and its been very interesting.

Like for example, 4 wrap center 3 wrap ends, or 3 wrap center and 4 wrap ends. It's really cool how it changes the whole feel just doing little things like that.

Have Fun.

Lately I've been using a 3 wrap LE, with 2 wrap (Rev Indoor) down spars. Works great. Although I would like to get a 2 wrap frame for it just to extend the min wind a little.

The 2-wrap frame is amazing in the vented in super light wind, I almost don't need my SUL anymore :kid_brooding:

The 2-wrap is just about all I ever use in both the vented and full sails. I guess I have been very lucky because I have flown them in harsh conditions without a break. I love the way they fly. I have 2 sets one in each sail and get too lazy to change them out with a 3 wrap. When the race frame gets here this week, I assume that will take the place of the 2-wraps.
