I have a non-vented B-series and have a few questions for people with the race rods.
1) Under what wind conditions do you take them out and use 2-wrap or 3-wrap frames instead?
2) In the lightest of winds (2-3mph), are 2-wrap rods better than race rods? I know race rods are a bit lighter, but 2-wraps are more flexible and might catch more wind in the sail. Any first-hand experience?
3) If you had race rods and were going to keep one other frame, would it be the 2-wrap or 3-wrap frame? When using the 2-wraps it in conjuction with the race rods in the LE, it can be used in higher winds and still remain quite light for a wide wind range. When using race rods + the 3-wraps, the kite can be conceivably be used with even higher wind capabilities. Which are more useful to have in addition to the race rods?
