I put my full sail pro with Diamonds away around 10 mph, can get scary when you Hit forward and a gust arrives at that Exact Time ! Love these rods and from my limited experience on 4 lines , 2 to 9 with no issues . Tune with a Ton of Brake and most will find these spars to be Not Fragile

Your mileage may vary :)-

Some thoughts on the Diamond sticked B series pro that Paul and I ran thru its paces early Saturday morning in Zero to 1.3 ....................WOW

I only have a year on the Handles with 4 lines and summer time was mostly Tough learning the low wind thing,we ain't got no wind for a few months. I found my self standing on the field handles in hand and kite on the ground thinking wt^!? am doing out here this is way too hard and I should be flying 2 lines but with some help,advice from my Quad friends,determination and hours on the field...would guess 500 hrs,I'm starting to get it,actually a couple weeks ago my wife asked if I was going to fly and I said no the winds suck and she surprisingly said and I quote " don't chastise me for saying this hon but you used to fly dual lines in any condition"

Well when she said that,my full sail was on Bazzer's Table. Here's hoping this is the tool I need to start honing with

Well there is no Doubt about it, this full sail Pro framed in Diamond rods is IT ! Amazing in low wind, I was able to keep up with(well sort of) Paul's Zen, could handle any part of the window and Lamasters has a Huge Window.

We flew for 8 hrs and in the afternoon winds came up to 7-8 mph and that breeze did Not phase the frame at all, just tuned with my leaders and kept on flying.

Went up to the Hill Sunday and switched to black race frame due to 9mph winds and the kite felt like a completley different sail. Very Nice but different

The only race rods I have had are green race in my vented Pro and they fit the situation fine most
Times but I love the Snap of the Diamond and black race rods, don't think at this point anyways that I need the 2 and 3 wrap frames anymore they feel like protruded rods since Having time on the Diamonds. I Love the diamond frame and the full sail Pro ain't bad either :)

#93812 B series pro.....SUL ?

Pulled the trigger on a full sail pro and wonder if maybe the a SUL configured kite may have been a better choice?

SUL = ? I assume lighter,no LE edge material?
Lighter weight bridle ?

I spent the summer on a stretched out loud b series factory kite framed p90 outer le 2 wrap middle 3 pt tapered downs per LaMasters in the low wind conditions,got along once I learned to stroll with it.

Thinking a pro with a Diamond frame may go at least as low as my low wind beater b ?????
