Now be honest. Who here uses a pocket protector with their kite winder? :clap; :clap; :clap;

Twists are not a problem, but I was just thinking that each turn is a potential problem. With other types of quad line kites that I have, it works really well to wrap the lines around the handles that they are attached to and it takes far less time for setup and cleanup. I am just trying to be more efficient with time. I do not carry the kite winder in my pocket, so that would not be an issue, I leave it with the kite bag.

I bought my first Rev a month ago. It was the Shockwave. Even though most recommend not getting that kite until a person is experienced, it did not stop me. The Shockwave really sounded like what I was looking for. I am very happy with my choice. I probably have taken a more difficult way of learning to fly a Rev, but it has been nothing but pure fun. If you are determined to succeed, then get what you want the most!

Today I definitely had the best winds yet with the shockwave. The winds were a very steady 15 knots. This kite can really fly fast. Also I was able to power it up between a 1.5 and 2.5 ram air kite. The sound coming off the shockwave adds to the fun. I am already thinking about my next rev!

I have now had quite a few sessions with the Shockwave. Unfortunately, most of the time the winds have been under 10 knots. The good news is that I can actually get this kite going in less wind than my 2.5 ram air kite will fly in.
