Hi Jay.
i would say if you are going to fly a rev 1, i would use 50lb line at what ever length suits you.
you will find the rev 1 is sweet from 2 to 3mph up to a max of 10mph.
so i dont think you will need 150lb line.
90lb and a 50lb set of lines will cover you for most of your flying.
i have not got a 90lb set , i use 110lb protec.
but if i had the choice i would fly on 90lb line.
by the way 120 ft lines will give you more room in the air, so if it does go pear shaped you will have more time to correct it before it hits the deck.
all the best steve(pudsli)

Thanks for all the advice not a complete novice, had an exp for the last 6 or 7 years couldn't get it off the ground for a long while then found the lines had about 6in difference in them, power kiters sorted that for me, then flew it finally in a real strong wind, can hover it just,dive stop still have trouble keeping it in a straight line lol.
My uncle bought a 1.5 sle had trouble getting that off the ground, was told and read that the 1 was easier to learn on so got one of those and a blast for the hell of it that a finnicky beast to control but great fun, reading threads on here thought it may be the sle spars that are giving me the problem, so not thinking buy a new frame, got my xmas bonus and b-day money together and took delivery of B series today. I know I always jump in without looking but on the plus side I'm unlikely to outgrow that lot lol oh yes wind keeps dropping to nothing so may have to find something for that is there no end? Looking at my fishing gear and knowing me no. No wonder I'm always skint! :revonhead:

Watty, the word is:

"definitely".



What can I say, I'm a bad speller. I hate language arts.

You NEED to get a vented if you dont allready have one. Other than that looks like you are sorted. Exept for that no end thing of course.
