RevLines - LPG vs Modulus

23 October 2011 - 07:43 PM

Gday from Down Under (or Up Over depending upon the time of day and your orientation)

Returning to flying Revs after a long layoff. Much of the technology currently available did not even exist when I learned the little I know about kiteflying. So I am asking for your opinions and expertise in a few areas (at the moment -probably many more questions in the future). Have perused this forum and many Vendor's blurbs about some gear. Have not yet found answers to a few of my questions.

I have a 1.5 JBstd w/Race Rods (black) and am contemplating a 1.5 JBvented to go with it. Will plan to have a set of each kind of rod (2/3/4wrap, and race). Mostly fun flying on the beaches of Sydney. (Might consider carrying along to festivals where I usually fly SLK - when I recover my lost skills(?)). Relaxed rather than aggressive, 'flash' or 'tricksy' style. Winds usually 2-10 or 15-30kph. Not too much in the way of nasty gusty winds (stay inside drinking wine on those days). Do not see much team flying in my horoscope.

Currently have a set of 50#/120', (assume LPG -Thanks Paul), 13' and 15" handles. For my other lines a local dealer is suggesting Modulus line sets as opposed to LPG. Have not been able to find out much on the difference between the two. Prism website seems to say "each is better than the other". Maybe? Could you please comment on this choice considering my flying type and equipment and value for money (cost difference not a consideration).

Am comfortable with the 120' lines. Are any other lengths really important or helpful for my type of (proposed) flying.

Your opinions will be appreciated. Thanks for your help. William
