Ok Felix, I have done my first bit of research and I now know about Zen and The Robertshaw versions, but what are diamond spars, I have read about the Race ones, but not the diamond

I do understand Felix, just wondering about as winter sets in would a vented give me/us more leeway practice wise.

johnogden has not logged on to the forum in about a year.

They probably developed some other interest.

Hi there, sorry for the delay in getting back on here, and yes its been a year and yes RevWizard I have been busy elsewhere but this was due to a few family problems and health ones on my partners side, most of which have settled down now, so I am back.
I guess last year was a bit of a false start again, however now our life is settled and I am actually earning money which is surplus to requirements and therefore is now my kite slush fund, things are back on track.

My partner and I attended Bristol International Kite Festival a few weeks ago and I rejoined both the Kite Society in the Uk and my local kite club Avon Kite Fliers. I have in my hand the form to join STACK as I was told that they hold Rev flying Boot Camps and my intention is to get practising as much as possible.
I have even obtained permission from my landlord who owns a few fields neaxt to my house and I can now fly there anytime I want.

I bought the full sail B Series 1.5 last year and I am now wanting to buy another to start a little collection i suppose.
My partner is even more inspired now after watching the displays at Bristol where the Decs flew their routines, so as well as making plans for a new fun Rokkaku Fighting team similar to how I started flying with The Boop Troop all those years ago for next years UK events, BUT... I also want to develop the theme I am working on (still on the drawing board so cant say as yet) and in time have a set of custom Revs made too using the same theme so that in the future I can fly displays if I get good enough, solo and then with my partner.
I dont really want to go down the competition route, not sure if I need the competitive edge but I would like to be good enough to put on displays to music for festival crowds.

So the next question I have for you all is this...
I have the standard full sail with the two sets of rods and lines and handles.

But what next?
Should I get another the same for her?
or should I get a vented for me and just let her share for now?
