Comments:
i bought this second hand - it needed a new leading edge bladder and had a pro repair had been done next to one of the struts - the kite hadnt been used much as it had been trashed on abouts its 4th outing - but i paid a very low price for it (about £70 + the cost of the new bladder). How it flies and feels depends alot on the wind conditions -

- it relaunches quick and easy. Its good upwind. Easy set up. feedback is good - you know where the kite is. I quite like riding it in waves as the relaunch is so good and it has a reasonable forward speed.

THe canopy isnt that tough - it picks up pins holes and that quite easily - that said its a 4 year old kite and it has taken a beating this last year. THe depower straps can often be out of reach and i have long arms! and it takes a bit more of knowledge on how kites work as its easy to end up with it back stalling. Its good at absorbing gusts and has quite a good wind range. ITs a good kite for learning, and for the price i paid i cant complain.
