#89006 The Watty Special

Posted by Baloo on 13 July 2012 - 12:51 PM

That would be awesome. Better yet, a stack that matches my pro set Posted Image

You know I always want you to go that One better Spence, Pro set matching would be great. I was thinking about the Black Red colours maybe reversed for kite to kite in the stack.

Hi Ben, great idea. Are they going to be in the traditional Watty colours? Maybe Watty and revered Red Black?

Don't you let anything interfere with having a good time.

#82938 Terminology and Definitions

Posted by Baloo on 12 August 2011 - 12:47 PM

Although i could easily suggest the way a kite is set up, many folks would set up differently.

Normally on short lines and flown in a similar way to indoor flying where little or no wind, or indeed a dirty swirling wind is all that is available.

However mostly to do with location, at street level in a town, maybe a shopping centre or possibly a small park surrounded by buildings.

Attire is optional, a hoodie is not needed, however the hooligan action of most street kiters would require hidden identity :kid_devlish:

#78020 Street Kiting in Portland

Well that was a bit dissapointing if you ask me Spence.

No big 360 on the dock, and a couple of irisponsible hoodies messing about in the nice fountain.

Now then what do I REALY think.

Guys, if only I had HALF the skill you Two have in your little figers I would be a fantastic flyer.

So glad to have been able to see you "grow up" Spence. And to be able to help in my little way.

As for you Barresi, fancy being a role model to so many, just look have you have made Spence in to.

Guys I am honoured to be able to call you brothers in flight, even if I have only just been born. :kid_devlish:

Oh, just thought of another thing I would like to see come out of Rev in the New Year.

Ben with a good pair of feet.

Hope everyone has a good Christmas.

#74548 New Ultra Race Rods from Rev

Posted by Baloo on 24 October 2010 - 01:35 AM

Interesting Rods, and I remember Ben saying they might not suit everybody.

I wonder Kent, do you think that was at full bend, or do you recon it would go further than that.

Maybe Rich would be good enough to test one to destruction for us. :kid_devlish:

#70455 Vented Revs, with UL frames...

Posted by Baloo on 23 June 2010 - 09:54 PM

I look on the "perfect size" bag as :

1 Standard sail, 1 Vented
1 2/3/4 wrap framesets

and thats pretty muhc all you'd need for any wind.

of course, I tend to haul a few more around than that.


Wow, wish you had told me that Years ago, would save me having to cart 2 bags of Revs around. :kid_devlish:

Missed this thread first time around, dont know why.

Going back to the first post, I just love venteds in as light a wind as I can get away with. for all the reasons that have ben mentioned.

And a vented Sedgwick with Race rods in, wOw.

Chris, I have some Climax (almost as good as LPG) line still on spools that I bought a few Years ago, never yet got round to using it. Not sure that I ever will.

In the interest of getting you going I could donate it to you, will cost you a drink if we ever meet at a fest or summat.

Pretty much the only condition I will put on the deal is that if you later get LPG or summat you have to pass the lines onto another needy person. :)

You could then have the fun of making your lines up. There is enough to make at least a set of 120ft, with a bit left over for some shoer 3D lines.

David might even help you with making them up.

You will need to get some bridle line to make into sleeves for the ends, I might even have some of that too.

Drop me a PM with your address if you are interested.

Just had a look on the Decathlon site, still showing as 79, is there a special offer I am not seeing?

Was impressed with the Soup Tent Bri.

#62800 Collectable value?

Posted by Baloo on 22 December 2009 - 10:22 AM

I might have been tempted at that price, could still be a bit lower though, trouble is adding in shipping and stuff.

I HIGHLY reccomend the Sedgwick. I will often fly it when all around are flying 1.5's, if only to be different :-)

#49971 Rods for the vented 1.5

Posted by Baloo on 08 May 2009 - 09:02 AM

Honest answer, buy more kites.

I have the luxury of a full sail, semi vent and full vent, all with race frame.

And another set with varying frames in them.

Also a set of Sedgwicks and Rev 2's once again with varying frame sets.

So pretty much as long as there is some wind I can at least try to fly.

Please please please do try the full vent with the Race rods, you will be suprised at how wide a wind range it has.
