#95506 Lee sedgwick 1.5 warm colors

Posted by btbt on 29 September 2014 - 08:43 PM

I always thought a 1.5 in a Sedgwick panel layout would be way cool...

I`m a huge Sedgwick fan and have both the hot and cool in both 1 and 2 sizes, plus an white/orange Sedg 2....also have a Robertshaw 1 which is based on a Sedgwick rather than a B/Zen layout....

I`d buy one!

Yay for the REV 1!!!!!

When the 1.5 was introduced I couldn`t stand them......too much of a compromise between the 1 and the 2 I thought...at the time. Took a couple of years....and many revs...to come to appreciate the 1.5 size and generally one of it`s models is the first out of the bag.... They are my "workhorses" but when a 1 does come out it makes it even more special.

My 1`s always will be my faves!!! I have 3....2 Sedgewicks and a classic. Was going to get a Zen but spent the loot on some BMK dualies before they were no longer being made.....the 1 w/2wraps will suffice for now.


#92438 Never used music. Am l missing out?

SO - my question is how the H do you dance without MUSIC?


I guess if all you are trying to do is practice moves, that doesn't make sense.  But if your aim is to fly connected with the kite and the wind, and the world, enjoy and let the little kid out to play, then music is essential to my experience.


OTOH - if your idea of music is not danceable, then it would not add to your experience.


Cool....to each his/her own!!! However.....

1. You don`t see tai chi or chi quiong players using music...it`s a series of moves. Now envision yourself doing improvised tai chi.......except you`re doing it with a kite attached to yourself....outwardly and inwardly...

2. Any music is "danceable"....ya just gotta do the appropriate dance...

3. As I stated in a previous post....John Cage`s 4'33.....dance (with the kite) to the music/rhythm(s) of your environment.

4. What is "music" anyway? I don`t have (or want to know) the answer and I`ve been a professional musican going on 35 yrs.....

Realize the premise of the OP is taking a sideways turn but....silence can be golden.
Mr. Bethell was a mentor to all of us flyers at Vanier Park in Vancouver. My tenure was from 1993 to 1996 when I moved out of the city.... Portable listening units were also slightly more cumbersome than today..... Ray didn't use one...



#70708 Buyer's remorse? :(

...An hour or so later, I walked out with a beautiful brand-new Rev 1.5 SLE! The owner of the kite store could not stop talking about how amazing and fun these kites were

Hey Brian,
Of course the store owner is right about these kites, however.....aside from the kite store owner talking about the kite did the owner "stop" talking about the kite and explain how it was/is set up or set it up in the store with you? Any flying tips? Does this person fly a Rev or just sell them?
Time and time again I`ve seen folks get frustrated about the set up/flight of a kite because there was no in store advice given. Doesn`t matter what kind of kite is bought/sold...the store owner or employee should at least go through the kites set up and pass on any flying and/or safety tips as part of a purchase....especially if it`s a first time buyer.
You`re at the right place though as there is a wealth of info here and JB has a great set of tutorials.
May this be the first of many Revs....and frames....
