Knot in the line

29 May 2011 - 05:56 AM

Hi all,

I've noticed 2 little knot in 2 of my lines. They are simple overhand knot but I'm unable to untie them because they are too small. I have a set of LPG 90 lb.
I've check my lines and don't think that those knots affect the lines length in a perceptible way.
Can this knots compromise the strength of the lines? Can I leave them in place or I have to untie them?


No ferrules

23 May 2011 - 05:27 AM


I've just recived a rev 1.5 from the states (I live and usually buy in Italy).
The rev doesn't have the SLE, it has standard 3 wrap frame. I've noticed the leading edge doesn't have any ferrules between spars, the center spar simply fit into the outer spars.
Is it safe to fly without ferrules or there's the risk of breaking the L.E.?


Stack mechanicals

I'm not getting a rev stack any soon, I simply can't afford it now...Posted Image But I'd like to know more about stacking.
I know that a stack (obviously) pull more than a single kite but does it requires less wind to fly or it requires the same amount of wind of the single kite? Or a massive stack can fly with no wind?
Can a pilot perform the same trick that he can do with a single kite with a stack? I guess you can't do a catch/trow, but a filc flac for example? is it possible?

Rev I vs Sedgwick (custom sedgwick?)

29 April 2011 - 07:07 AM

hi guys,

I'd like to buy a Rev I but have some trouble making a decision. I read John's opinion on the sedgwick paneling but I really don't like the sedgwick colors... so here's my questions:
Is the flight precision that different between the standard rev I and the sedgwick model?
There's a way to get a custom color sedgwick? (Love the one John uses in this video)
