#81021 Lost Rev Handles+Line

Posted by xC4RB0NxR3104Dx on 17 June 2011 - 08:07 PM

I doubt they will show up, but it's worth a shot :blue-confused:. My father was flying at the ocean city beach around 59th st. My handles (which were the ones from the b-series kite, and of course attached to my line)were secured to the bungee straps on his Zephyr hard case. This was on 6/16/11. The next day when we went to go flying together, my handles were no longer strapped to his bag. We've looked all over, and can't find them. So if anyone has found them please reply.

I'm fully aware that these things are probably long gone, so does anyone know where I can replace handles and line at a good price.

#80590 EXP vs SLE vs ???

I've always flown 2 line stunt kites, and the thing that I've always enjoyed most was the ballet aspect of it (particularly in tandem with musical performance.) After going to my local kite festival and witnessing all of the ballet entries, I noticed that a good majority of the pilots were using rev kites. After seeing 3 or 4 amazing performances, I knew I needed to make the switch :D.

Anyways, I've never owned a rev b4, so I'm at a toss up on where to start. I'm a 16 year old on a minimum wage salary, so price is sort of an object, which means no B-series for me :(. So, the obvious first choice that comes up immediately is the EXP. it seems to be good for the price, but it's designed for beginners. That being said, I don't want to go out and buy one, and then find out it won't take me into intermediate and expert levels of flying due to their design choice and target audience. So can someone tell me if that's a viable fear? Can I really outgrow the EXP????? I really don't want to have to purchase a 2nd kite after the EXP.

That brings me to my second point. The step up form the EXP to me it seems is the SLE????? So would I be better off buying an SLE and being done, or will the EXP serve me fine, despite my estranged panic. I guess thirdly If the SLE is a bad decison for whatever reason, what shud I get in place of the SLE.

I live near a beach, so I don't need to worry about ultra-light or any of that.

To sum it all up:
1. Is it possible that I will outgrow the EXP, and regret purchasing it?
2. Is the SLE a smart step-up form the EXP, or is there another kite that is a better step that will serve me well?
3. I'm only buying one, and price is an object. It will be my entire kiting career, so the choice needs to be a smart one

Thank u if you've read the whole thing (i know I ramble.....) I appreciate any advice given, or any knowledge you have to offer.
