Well it's official the "Diamond Shafts" are in production here at Revolution, all the stickers are

here, the graphite is bought, and the first major batch is coming out the oven, so it's a GO......

 ani_yahoo.gif With all that said they are not going to be cheap but they are one of the best rods we have ever made, they are light, stiff, and the reflex is out of this world..... akuma.gif {my original post

on these can see seen at "The Diamond Shaft" on the forum} What Im going to do is get my

butt handed to me but "oh well"cat_sick.gif, for the introductory price of $99.00 you to can have a set of the newest addition to the "Revolution" product line, this is a savings of over $40.00 and as always this is a direst sell item from me, which means you have to say (Bens sale oh boy) I love this job...... cat_shocked.gif Ya this is a sale price and can only be had by saying (Bens sale oh boy),

I do have issues..... ani_smoke.gifBen keeper of the madness

 

animal_rooster.gif Sale price is only good till the end of Oct. animal_rooster.gif

I needed a set last night...
I was flying the S&S on 40'  from midnight until 630 this morning at Alki.

Wonderful response from so many walking and driving by.

Conditions were perfect. Just a little lull before sunrise.

All my indoor flying paid off in spades.

 

I have fine tuned the S&S and it floats so nice, then the bridle broke.

Can't imagine why... It gets flown daily. I can't but it away.

 

 

I'm saying it "Bens sale oh boy"

( I need a spool of bridle line too.)

Been waiting to get some of these...guess it's time! Are they only available in 1.5, or will you be doing 1 and II frames as well?

Remake and rewrap for a REv2?  that's it?

KiteSquid would thread wrap 'em too, in Kanji & international symbol with his nickname, he'd paint 'em white first though so there could be no doubt who owns 'em!

for the introductory price of $99.00 you to can have a set of the newest addition to the "Revolution" product line, this is a savings of over $40.00 and as always this is a direst sell item from me, which means you have to say (Bens sale oh boy) I love this
 Ya this is a sale price and can only be had by saying (Bens sale oh boy)
 


Sorry, I'm a little confused. Do I have to buy from you in person to get the sale price, or just say the phrase that pays when I order? :)

I covet these rods.

Guess I'll have to build another set of bump stop caps.

(Dampening inside and outside the cap)

They have saved my indoor rods from being pounded in to splitters over the last 9 months of street flying.

 

I'll be posting details once I'm completely convinced they work.

It could be a total illusion in my mind. :)

I had the opportunity to try these out at AISF - thanks John!
It was night time, very little wind, maybe 1-3mph variable. Loaded them into my Hermanos Bros print. Its amazing how much feel I had across so light a stick; I couldn't get over how much feedback I was getting! In nothing wind too! Sail loads up perfectly, LE bending properly across its entire length. I couldn't stop smiling over it.....

Getting myself a set for sure ;)

Have Rev, Will Travel

UPDATE

This Saturday I had a chance to do some flying in 1mph wind and 50 ft. lines and what a dream come true, I wasn't 

doing the normal float motion as much and was able to mostly stay in one spot...... ani_victory.gif So for me and in those conditions it was a dream come true..... So the score is "Diamond Rods" by a million cause it really worked out

well, I love it when a plan comes together...... Ben  cat_goofy.gif kid_dozey.gif ani_punk.gif

Ben,

 

I like these rods very much indeed and hope to get to fly them again next Sunday.  The forecast is for 21c and 2mph <grins>

Rich, aka "The Pusher", brought some to our fly the other weekend and the standard commentary from each of us was "Oh My God!". Hehehe! I'm so happy to hear that they're in production! :ani_punk:

I ordered one set in a cut-down travel format and one as full-sized frame members so I can compare the two, hopefully in the Shook 75% Ghosts since I have a pair (otherwise, in Dugard's new full sail pro pair at Sunfest this weekend).  I have a pair of Old Glory kites that might be upgraded significantly depending on the conditions and my mood.

 

The Diamond framed Zen will also be available if folks want to give that a spankin',... weather permitting of course!

 

Wings over Washington will probably set-up south of the Kiteloft, with the Rev field wherever a crowd congregates.
