Lessons learned out on the field.


This kite reel would have been very, very handy out on the field today.  The Flip and EO (Expandable Object) Atom kites fold easy for storage purposes.  But the Flip folds too easily when it comes to the ground, and the Atom doesn't drag easily along the ground.  So a reel like this, which casts and reels in line easily would have been helpful, especially as the wind came and went in fits and starts.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. That's pretty nifty-looking. Is it pricey?


  2. $7-$8, not counting shipping, so I guess you decide. Not as cheap as twine on a spool. I used the same distributor, though, when I ordered all the string, to mitigate shipping costs a little bit.
