In Topic: Remove wrinkles from sail

Does it matter if the sail is wrinkled or is it just for looks


I think I had it in my head to smooth it out cause I thought it would look nice. Also the crease where the kite folds bothered me. I guess I am nitpicking.

All great points, thank you. Just feeling the material told me that it would be very finicky. So I erred on the side of caution and asked you guys. A good point that I foolishly forgot was the fact when I put it away it will start all over again. The main wrinkles that bother me are the lines forming when the kite is folded. That edge is strongly wrinkled. Maybe I am too much of a baby. Ha ha.

I have seen those steam machines you hold in your hand where they are supposed to take wrinkles out of delicates like silk. But as was mentioned, with normal put away it will not last long. So I think I am being too stuffy with my kite. I love them so!!! :D


Thank you guys.

In Topic: 50# Shorties

This is the perfect topic for me and I am glad that I found it on the site. I am in a slightly different situation. I have a 75', 85' and 100' line at my disposal. I wanted to make two sets of lines from one of these existing sets. I wanted to have two short sets so my son and I could fly together. I see talk about 40' lines, would I be correct in assuming this is the best all around length? We wanted to have lines short enough to fly in the backyard as of now, we need to go to a park, etc.

Well, I finally beat the curse. Got past the snow, getting sick, and then rain. Finally got clear skies and took the Vented B out for the first flight. It was a little light in wind as I had to put some good effort into altitude but boy.... WHAT A DREAM. It was such a difference in flight. Lighter, not stiff like the SLE. Made me feel like I could "finesse" it more, it had give. I can't wait to put the lighter frame in my full sail.

What an awesome night. I left the park feeling happy. What an awesome product that can make you leave happy right?

Thanks everyone for your help with selecting this kite. Now I have a lot of options and conditions covered with my 1.5 SLE and my Vented B.

Thank you everyone for the welcome. I checked my tracking and the kite should be arriving some time today. Sadly, it is 34 degrees with light snow today. (I am north of Colorado Springs) Not expecting weather above 50 until Wednesday.

I will take this time to prim up the kite. So looking forward to it.
