      Well I injured a tendon in my arm so I have been out of production for a while.  Hopefully I can heal and get back after it this fall...

      Hi Daryl,

      How have you been?  Are you getting any riding in on the lakes in Nebraska?  16m V2 probably only worth a couple of hundred bucks.  I modded my old reliable 19m V1 with TET and shoulder and center strap shortening which helped a lot.  The TET a bit of a pain as over time the stitching pulled apart and ripped the fabric.  Have a 13m V1 modded in the shoulders and center strap without the TET I still use a lot in high winds.  Find it stable and forgiving in gusty in land winds like what you ride on.  Have used it on some really nasty days when I feared to use the 15m Charger or 15m Synergy.  Am still getting used to the 15m Charger which requires in my estimation a lot more attention to fly.

      Now I use the modded well worn 19m V1 when I'm teaching kids and friends. Its covered with patches from several seasons of use and abuse.  With your boys growing up you might want to keep your 16m V2  to teach them.

      Daryl you need to do the mods to make it work well.
      Start with the TET and then the shoulder strap shortening.

      Mine was not a lot till I figured it out.
      Now I have the Synergy range but my 16 V2 is still going for the guy I sold it too a couple of years ago.

      I have a only tested venom 16m.  I tought I would use it in lighter winds but find if winds are that light for me the kite is difficult to keep airborne.  I am 145lbs.  I bought it brand new year before last, yes it was a rare find.  Not sure what it is worth these days.  Call or txt daryl 402 957 cell

      .....my wife likes this one!

      Frozen Crabs and the Blonde Flight Attendant.

      A lawyer boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of
      frozen crabs and asked a blonde flight attendant to take care
      of them for him. 

      She took the box and promised to put it in the crew's
      refrigerator.   He advised her that he was holding her
      personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning
      in a very haughty manner that he was a  lawyer, and
      proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she
      let them thaw out.  Needless to say, she was annoyed by
      his behavior. 

      Shortly before landing in New York , she used the intercom
      to announce to the entire cabin,
      "Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs in New Orleans please raise your hand?"

      Not one hand went up, so she took them home and ate them.

      Two lessons here:
          1. Many lawyers aren't as smart as they think they are.
          2. Many blondes aren't as dumb as most folks think
