Re: 2013 Blade Fat Lady - Second Generation Light Wind Maven

The new fat lady is a whole different kind of animal man. Accelerates to the edge like the new triggers, and is totally rock solid in the air. Turns very well with the Unibar and depowers very nicely for strapless riding. But it seems to love the torque of a twin tip and has quicker pop and more ver...

Re: 2013 Blade Fat Lady - Second Generation Light Wind Maven

Having one of these in your quiver will assure you a session every time there is wind.
If this kite flies like the new triggers, (it sure looks similar) I won't be missing the v1 at all.

Re: 2013 Blade Fat Lady - Second Generation Light Wind Maven

A new FL 17m found its way to me this week. Here are a few shots of it. Construction is super tight and clean through out. The profile seems much more compact and medium aspect. Struts are small diameter and the LE is beautifully curved and shaped and coned at the ends. The bag matches the rest of t...

Blade 2013 9m Trigger

I've had good time with this kite. This kite favors a rider looking for all conditions traction as reactive as a formula race car. Some one who visualizes power strokes, acrobatics and hot landings in their daydreams. This is one heck of a flyers kite and makes me smile every time I throw it in the ...

Re: The new Uni Control Bar by Blade

I have used the Unibar for many sessions now, with a new 9m triggger and the 2012 12m trigger, fat lady. Its a sweet set up! The 2012 kites fly super tight and turn fast. Not missing the strap sheeter at all or that bulge at the center of the old bar. Its amazing how a little rectagular shaping brin...

Re: Update-beaches cleaner after plastic bag ban in Seattle?

Thats right, the city banned the use of plastic bags by businesses. You can buy paper bags or bring your own. I never remember to put those things in my car, but I seem to always have my quiver with me. Seriously though. I used to see plastic bags on the beach every time I had a session. A year afte...

Update-beaches cleaner after plastic bag ban in Seattle?

Yes!
They really are.
I urge others in cities where a plastic bag ban is offered to support it.
Watching a checker fill your sandy kite bag with beer and chips is worth it!
