Re: Overall Bridal Stretching?

I disagree with both of you. The Rev was a boosting machine and there are plenty of old Youtube videos of Ben Wilson and Ryland Blakeney tearing up the waves on the Rev. The Achilles heal of the Rev was the bridal. The P line would stretch after not much use. Other than that the Rev was a sweet kite...

Re: Why do other brands then slingshot still use inferior li

Ocean Rodeo uses 650# lines on front and rear on their bars. Very nice quality lines. 800# seems to me a bit of over kill unless you really crank on the bar a lot or are a bigger person. One nice thing about the 800# centers though is you can tie figure 8 knots in them to shorten without weakening t...

IMO the build quality of Ocean Rodeo is far superior and OR has a one way inflate valve. Slingshot has the little plastic ball to stop air getting back out. I had...

Re: I was wrong about North products!

Maybe North has something to offer that the other companies don't and people are willing to pay a premium for. Like the footstraps mentioned. That...

Re: I was wrong about North products!

Kite prices are going up here in the US because our leaders are printing money and wiping their asses with it. The cost of doing business is rising and I'm sure margins are pretty tight. On the other hand, I don't know too many people who pay retail. Most I know wait for deals or buy used. Thread dr...

Re: 2013 Ocean Rodeo Razor

From OR Forum looks the 2013 Razor is a 2012 with white wingtips. Anybody who has flown them both have any other thoughts? Thanks

Re: 2013 Ocean Rodeo Razor

Can anybody compare the 2012 with the 2013 Razor? I have the 2012s and think it would be hard to improve upon. Thanks
