wow this question really took off. i haven't been at the forum in a few days, so thanks for the advice. since i mostly have light wind conditions i should give kent a call and order a 2 wrap or race rods. tim
I have 3 Rev 1`s and I really like an SLE in my (self)vented Rev 1. Not so much in a regular sail....but still ok. For those I have a 2 wrap and race frame set for one, and a regular 4 wrap in the other.
The stiffness of the SLE (in the vented) in higher winds keeps it manageable for me. In lower to non existant winds I like the flex of the 2 wrap or race frames.
I may be wrong but generally the naysayers to SLE`s....myself included...are directed at 1.5`s. I tried an SLE in both a vented 1.5 and a regular sail and ugh....no thanks!! The larger sail of the 1`s seem more condusive to an SLE imho.
However....don`t stop there....get a 2 wrap or a race frame as well
thanks for the help. i'll have to give kent (awoc) a call and pick-up a different frame or two for this. i went through the same problem with my 1.5 rev, now i have four 1.5 s and every frame for it. what an addiction. tim from pittsburgh
Whether they are available at this time, I don't know.
I made the suggestion to Dave a couple years back. The next time I was in the shop he had a set ready for me. At that time five sets were made.
The green rods are in general, my preferred rods for the REV I.
John, I don't think the Green Race are available in the Rev 1.
We have the SLE rods in stock and you can purchase them as single rods or all three for a complete leading edge, or you can purchase the whole frameset. Just let us know what you need and we can get it for you.
wow , thanks for all the input. i held off on buying the dyneema lines. they were too cheap to be good and they came with 13" handles which i have enough of. i don't fly that often let alone team but i'm making more time. i just picked up a supersonic that didn't have lines , just 11" handles. i have 150# 100' lines that i got from awoc for my 1.5 3 stack but want to pick up a shorter set. i'll stick to lpg or shanti. i actually just flew this thing of the first time today. 35 degree pittsburgh weather but what a blast. thanks again tim
