I was pondering the contest for Race Rods, and since Iím in Information Technology for a healthcare system, ďyou take your kite to work and post the picture on the site
Ē doesnít sound very exciting in my case. So instead of ďtaking my kite to work
Ē, I decided to take my favorites
to work. You can tell itís my office since thereís my laptop and PDA on the desk on the right.
As you look in the picture, my favorite Rev I
is in the back. Itís a Sedgwick hot colors. Now, Iíve recently purchased a custom hot colors vented Rev I (thank you Lolly), and it indeed could become my favorite Rev I, but I havenít put enough time on it to decide for sure.
Above the Sedgwick Rev I is my hands down favorite Speed Series kite Ė Sonic Vented
. I also have a Supersonic and Shockwave, but when the winds are ahowliní and I feel the need for speed, nothing holds a candle to my Sonic Vented.
Now, my favorite Rev 1.5M
is on the left. Itís a custom ď2006 KTAIĒ Rev 1.5. Ya gotta love those hot colors! One like it was on display at KTAI in 2006, and I donít know if this is that actual kite, or one just like it. But I love the colors. I have it with 3-wrap spars.
Iíve heard it said that the Rev 2
is ďas squirrely as an oak tree in autumnĒ. But I donít agree. I also have a 3-stack of Rev 2ís in cool colors thatís tons of fun to fly. But my favoriteÖ You guessed it, itís the hot colors Rev 2 on the right side of the picture.
Now for precision, my absolute favorite is my red B-Series 1.5
(thank you John) on the left side of the picture. Iíll probably never fly it as good as itís capable of being flown, but I surely do enjoy its precision.
My latest addition, and fast becoming my favorite precision vented kite is the gold B-Series 1.5 Vented
on the right side of the picture (thank you again, Lolly). Today after I took the picture we actually had some reasonable winds here in central North Carolina, and I was able to fly it with 2-wrap spars. Smooth!
Oh, and my favorite kite bag is on the chair along with my favorite T-shirt.
So thatís it, Ben. After I set the kites up my office, I had a co-worker come in and he thoroughly enjoyed me discussing each kite and why itís my favorite. I think the kites enjoyed seeing my office, too!(My two B-Series kites tell me that since they rarely have much wind, they really, really, really need some Race Rods!!!)
