Right on Jimboooo. Too many folks with "keyboard courage." Just kills the buzz. Anyway, if anyone wants to take the time to search the forum you'll find that line #5 is indeed too long and Paul Menta as well as Cab Driver suggested using the last knot. The Cabrinha distributor also told this to all ...

This is not a MOD, it is a FIX. The factory didn't make one line on the production kites to specification to match the approved prototype. It was only a few centimeters too long, but it totally changed the personality of the kite. The problem is on the Contra 3 and the X Bow 3. IMHO, this is why som...

It could just be a dune jump. There are 200 ft. high dunes on the west coast of Michigan. Google Earth Sleeping Bear Dunes, Luddington, Silver Lake, etc. and you'll see the dunes from above (I know you can't see relief from that above, but you'll get the idea). Or try some Michigan visitor's guide t...

This is off topic, but messing this up could be dangerous. Take a moment to think this through logically. A 2 to 1 bar should only be used on a 2 to 1 kite. So, the Contra bar can be used on the Omega when the Omega is set up 2 to 1. Likewise, a 1 to 1 bar should only be used on the Omega when it is...

I just made the mod to a 7m Omega we use for lessons. Now if we could get some dang wind I could let you know how it works for us. It was very simple. Toby's instructions are spot on. They seem long, but it is just because they are thorough. If this ends up being like a Switchblade 2 with Omega cons...

I sent candidate and Illinois Senator Obama a letter on it. 80 jobs. Whopee. It's also 80 more swimmers with sinus infections, 80 more beach closings, 80 episodes of horrible stench, 80 more cases of asthma, 80 more fill in the blank. Plus tourism, boating, fishing, and watersports dollars lost. For...

Hopefully, some of the improved construction stuff is visible here. http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa5/adventurebicycle/100_0771.jpg http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa5/adventurebicycle/100_0770.jpg http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa5/adventurebicycle/100_0773.jpg -Stafford http://www.adve...

I'm not sure what color that is called. The box is long gone. Besides, they are cryptic. The boxes of the ones we have in stock say "Color: 3A" or, "Color: 3B" so I have no idea. Sorry I can't be more helpful. They all look good to me except for that cream colored one. I need to see that one inflate...

This problem has been hammered on numerous times on this forum under Xbows, Contras, even SB 2s. Here is what I posted for the SB 2 (it's not flame bait, but the usual suspects will hit on it): Lots of stores will sew up the kite for you inexpensively. In the USA, I had a Contra repaired for $80. It...

Here are a couple of pics of a customer's Contra 14m. He wanted to pump it up in the driveway just to check it out as there wasn't enough wind to ride the day it came in. We got other colors in, but haven't taken them out of the bag or got any picturs back from other customers. http://i199.photobuck...
