#93207 "The Diamond Shaft"

Posted by beach on 08 July 2013 - 12:21 PM

Got to teat Watty's and I found they start to distort a bit in the 1.5 over 4 mph, but these rods are SWEET for light wind and oh, SO, so light... TK and I can't wait to get some for ourselves. smile.png

Total wind range where I feel these rods will shine is from about 1 to 4 mph with no more than 6 mph, plus I think alot has to do with the fliers style......cat_shocked.gif  Also remember it's like any other tool which means to me that I have many 

different tools in my tool box but this one just does the job the best......ani_yahoo.gif  For me I'm not trying to reinvent the

wheel just give in some more tread to help me out of the mud...... All in all I still believe these rods respond very

well and are very tough given there size and weight, all I can really say is give them a try and see if they fit your

style of flying....... Bengathering.gif cat_wub.gif ani_giveup.gif

#92749 Eliot Shook mesh weave info

Posted by beach on 16 May 2013 - 11:09 AM

Is it just me, or is this not what Wayne was asking? I don't think he was asking for a diagram or for any kind of dimensions. Merely a photo of each of the three kites labeled to have a visual representation of the difference. Hell, there was already a photo posted earlier of a 75%. Refusal of this request is like refusing to show pictures of a mid-vent and a full-vent for fear of copyright infringement. Might as well just not make the damn things if you can't take pictures of them. I'm sure there are plenty of photos out there of the Shook mesh kites; would it really be so bad to grab three and label them as 40%, 75%, and 100%? Sorry, this just seems really ridiculous.

Calm down Watty it's okay, breath....... Benani_wallbash.gif ani_wallbash.gif ani_wallbash.gif

#92669 Another Ron Bohart That Is Off The Hook

Posted by beach on 10 May 2013 - 10:35 AM

Well I just had to share this even with it being unfinished, just got this in from Ron Bohart and

I'm calling it Panda Play and it's just OFF THE HOOK...... His use of color added with

his work just puts his stuff over the top...... ani_victory.gif So here's the first photo of "Panda Play" and

as you can see it's a raw skin, the cost of this kite is $700.00 and I'll frame it how ever you

want........ Ben cat_wub.gif ani_whistling.gif gathering.gif

#92598 "The Diamond Shaft"

Posted by beach on 03 May 2013 - 11:04 AM

Being that I've had to be home these days I've had the time to experiment with some very new high modules raw carbon fiber......ani_idea.gif  As most of you may know the "Race Rod" program was born the very same way and the new "Diamond Shaft" is going to be a home run for flying in low bumpy wind.....ani_yahoo.gif  These new shafts are weighing in at less than 10 grams a stick, they are very strong, and the reflex, which is the rebound time is almost twice as fast as standard "Race Rods" .........ani_yahoo.gif  I got a winner here for sure folks, the bad part is this material is way expensive like well over $100.00 a pound so I only bought enough for a limited run of about 20 sets or so for now, we don't have a lot of them right now so for sure its a limited run.... ani_wallbash.gif 

 So everyone knows from the start these are going to be expensive at $150.00 a set but they are in my opinion well worth the money, I mean imagine a rod that is lighter than your beloved "Race Rods", which is stiffer than you old "Race Rods"and then just snaps back when your do those quick formation turns, hell ya is all I can say.......ani_yahoo.gif   So folks here they are the new "Diamond Shaft" and the next step in Revolution flying.......
