I've been flying a bunch lately, mostly my "new" set of used Pros! But in my bag was this sleeve that hadn't been opened in quite a while!!
So one day when the winds were only so-so, I opened this sleeve and out came my old Rev 1! Now this kite came with a 4 wrap frame, 11" handles, and 150# lines! I used to fly it at festivals, but only if the winds were perfect for it! And this was many years ago!
Over the last few times out, I put the Rev 1 on my 90# lines with 13" handles and the only light wind concession, was that I had put a Race frame in it! I'm remembering how much fun that kite is!! Yeah, I know, it's not the latest, greatest, thing out there! My Pros are proof of that!! But it did kindle the fire that burns in me today!! Oh, and did I mention how much fun that thing is? Not a light, no pull feeling on the lines, but a solid tug, even in light wind! Now I know why this size platform was picked to be the basis of the Zen!! Big, solid, and still responsive to the touch!!
I'm loving my old friend!!
