Hello everybody
Is it really possible to fly without wind, or a very low wind, with a Barresi series ?
The video is very fine but everybody is not J. Barresi.

Yes. It is very possible. You can do the same thing with a rev 1.5. It is best to remove the bridal first though, but somepeople just leave the kite as is.

I use this analogy frequently when somebody wants a new kite, "could Tiger Woods beat you with a borrowed set of kids' golf clubs?" Go ahead, you can use his personal sticks,... see if that helps!
Do you think buying Lam's or Barresi's kite is going to make you look as good as they are? Granted, the best equipment is one less variable to worth about, but skill only comes from dedicated practice.

In France we had a publicity for car oil, it said : "Put a tiger in your engine".
So we can say : "what's the matter to have a tiger in your engine if the driver is a donkey."
In France donkey has bad reputation you say ass for it.

I fly Revolution kite for ten years, and I fly others kites to.
Now I would like to buy a 1.5 SUL but B. Series seems to be a very good kite. So : ???
And I can't buy all Rev kites at the same time, you don't know my wife !
Please excuse me for my bad english, I'm just french.

I have no real experience of other models Vincent, but with the extra frameset that comes with a B-Series, you can mix-and-match to create lots of variations of frame strength and flexibility. I have flown mine with leading edge at 2-wrap right up to 7-wrap (3-wrap + 4-wrap together, during our recent VERY windy meeting in Dunstable). All this comes with the kite, so I'd go with B-Series non-vented and experiment.

PS Your english is excellent. Better than most on here!

Your English is much better than my French!!!

Certainly having a great kite is not going to turn you into a master overnight. But having said that, the flexibility of two frame sets is great, as Fraser says. And of course as you improve the B series at least gives you room to grow into. Both are benefits that are very much worth the money IMHO.

Dont know about anyone else, when I am there with my Sea Devil or B series I feel like a King, and I am just as good as Lam and John.

That is right up to the time I launch it of course :w00t: :P
