Re: Water repellent spray... again

Still, having the low end in lull winds is very important for not crashing the kite so I don't see how it is going to help since the kite is going to be heavier.
I guess only by testing it you would see the real trade off in kite flying that is.

Surf straps on a twintip

I want to replace the existing straps on my twintip with new Surf specific straps. I intend to keep the same pads.

Re: Slingshot Rally vs Z

The Z is the easiest kite to relaunch (even easier than the Rally). I used to own a Z (the first year) but the material back then rip twice from leading to trailing edge. I was told it was a munufactured defect. Anyway Slingshot compensated me and now own a Rally which I like but still miss the inst...

Re: Which kite manufacturer's kites have the highest quality/are most durable

ten years ago there could be large differences in product quality but now pretty much everyone uses the exact same factories in china to make their products.....it's all coming out of the same factory. Coming from the same factory doesn t mean they are equal quality. Kite companies have different r...
