Home made BOW

Home made
Hi all,

for lack of a better name I will call it fishtank (for the "transparent" panels)

some info:
material: ocean 455 dacron LE and ribs canopy AIRX900 and 600 combination.
design: bow kite with 6 ribs, 6 straight, with profile to canopy.
for the canopy 3M provided me with some tape that will not require stitching, will test other tapes for dacron parts in future kite.

I still need 2 strut bladders to finish kite, then I can test.
just hoping it will fly at least half as well as it looks!

thanks to:
GIGI (www.kite-stuff.org) for advice on the design
Bart and friends (http://www.bozon.org/) for plotting the plans straight to fabric
Bruno legainoux (http://www.inflatablekite.com/sitebow/BowAccueil.php) for giving me permission to build myself a bow-kite
and 3M for giving me a role of tape to test
and especially my gilrfriend who had to put up with all the building frenzy (I love you)

Jeff Tobias over de TD2


Pro Rider Jeff Tobias has been more or less off the radar screen since we last saw him in the DVD Spare Change but has been busy behind the scenes perfecting Slingshot's 2nd generation bow, the Turbo2. One of the original Maui crew, Jeff joins ASnews.net this week to talk about Slingshot's new R&D house in Western Oz and what did and didn't go into the final design of the T2, which just started shipping to dealers around the country.

Got a question for Jeff? Ask him you questions and get answered Real Time during ASnews.net LIVE podcast this Thursday evening.
