Re: Blade's 5th Gen Trigger - A brand new profile shape

Hi mate, The kite I'm with is not a Blade kite. That company uses the Blade bars (with different colors and their own logo). You try to open this QR if you are being dragged and thrown around on the beach. Good luck (and I hope it will never happen to you or anyone else, except those who designed a...

Re: Blade's 5th Gen Trigger - A brand new profile shape

@ Ceasar, Are you sure it was a Blade bar? What year? I bought my first Blade last year (Trigger 7m 2011) and I really liked how the kite flies. In 2012 I've change my hole quiver to Blade (4 kites/bars). I was not impressed by the look of the QR but it works! Even under load, it works as well as w...

Re: Blade's 5th Gen Trigger - A brand new profile shape

Any news on the prime. How much did they change it, compare to 2011 and 2012 models. Planing on swiching this year. Will probabl keep my 2011 T9. The Prime has had a couple of slight modifications just to refine its performance. I haven't received the Prime yet but it should arrive this week in the...

Re: Dyno 18 Vs Fat Lady??

Guess it depends on what you looking for. The Dyno is more a race kind of kite. Which has better upwind abilitys. The fat lady is more for having fun in low winds. More playfull. If it is cruizing what your looking for the dyno will be better. If its playing a bit more the fat lady will be more wha...

Re: Dyno 18 Vs Fat Lady??

I have ridden both as well as a few other light wind kites. At first glance the set it and forget it nature of the Dyno is appealing but the more I played with both kites I realized I got bored quickly with the Dyno. I do not just like to mow the lawn. I agree with what has been said earlier. They a...

Re: 14m SS Rally VS. Epic "Infinity" light wind kite

I agree that lightwind kiting had always been something that I would just avoid and go find another activity for the day. I guarantee that the low end of the Blade Fat Lady, Infinity and Turbine are all lower then the 14m Rally. Out of those kites I have been on all 3 and can tell you lightwind kiti...

Re: Kiteforum needs an honest review section!

Better than any review is head to your local beach ask the guys who are supported by your local shops to demo a kite. Ride it for 15 min and formulate your own review. One suggestion is maintain a constant variable. For instance don't try a new kidte and a new board at the same time. There are all s...

Blade Kites 2012

Just received my 2012 Blade kites. I have tried the new 4G 12m Trigger and I noticed a slight increase in turning speed (2011 was already a really fast kite) The main thing I noticed was an improved amount of lift. One last thing I found was that this kite has a tremendous amount of range. I went fr...

Re: Blade Kites 2012

Yaron, Thanks for sharing the next generation of Prime, Trigger and the recently introduced Fat Lady. I am so stoked for the new gear to arrive.I have always said I didn't care how a kite looks as long as it performed well. Over the last couple of years Blade has hit a homerun in both catagories. I ...
