In Topic: Lineset strength and wind speed?

01 March 2011 - 01:12 PM

Sounds good! I was nervous about flying in ballistic wind (anything over 14 mph from weather.com) because I was afraid of breaking something or breaking a lineset. I feel better about it now.

I flew my Rev I standard today at lunch. The snow is all gone, the astro turf soccer/football field was warm and dry. The air temp was 41 degrees but the field was warmer from the sun. The forecast said 14 mph but it had to be less - I'm thinking less than 10 mph. Even though it was a little gusty I worked on holding the kite in position and rotating around the tips. Good times! The season begins!

I have the handles for the B series and I'm okay with adjusting the leaders. What do you think the upper wind speed range would be based on what I have? The wind is really blowing over 20 mph and I'd be nervous. Should I be?

I guess I'm okay lineset wise then. Next question:
What's the maximum wind speed with 90# lines for the

Mid vent:

and the same for the vented:

In Topic: "B" series vs. "B" series pro

I know it's been a while since this thread was posted but my two cents:

My B Series is so much smoother than my Rev 1s. The B Series feels much more precise than my Rev 1. I can imagine that the Pro is even better! Kudos to Rev for being able to improve on an already great kite!
