In Topic: Vertical sleeves - any use??

28 September 2014 - 10:08 AM

We have been using the rod sleeves for a couple of weeks. A great idea. They do not look ugly (in fact you cannot tell when they are in place). They do not impede the kite in anyway. It is early days but we are delighted with them, particularly if they extend the life of the sail and reduce wear.

Interesting. We had similar discussions about our team kites and found the B-series difficult to reconcile with our Sedgwick influenced stripes. The Los Hermanos printed sail you can have the printing over the mesh. This was a huge help to us but we also added a black division between colours to define the stripes. A word of warning with the printed sail - Just make sure you put the right kite in the right bag after use as it can be very difficult to tell if it is standard, mid, or full vent once on the lines! For us the printed sail was the perfect solution

I missed this post. Thank you Decs for coming North. It was a great weekend in very challenging conditions. Now it is time to do it all over again this weekend at Dieppe!

In Topic: Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, are a Rev fliers best friend......

Last weekend at Portsmouth I had the opportunity to fly Diamonds in our printed team sails and compare them with the Decs rev 1 and TFS ultra light sails with Diamonds. Some kites had two wrap or race. All kites felt great. Rev 1 gave great feedback. The TFS ultra lights were also very impressive and I loved our printed sails but I may be biased!
The Diamonds allowed flying in very tricky conditions with a wide variety of sails and set ups. The Diamond rods are certainly a very welcome addition to my kite bag. This winter we will be looking to see how they react to indoor flying. :)
