You say: "The Waroo or Allura bridle is a minimized 4-point bridle. It's probably most similar to the Sonic, except the wingtip "V's" are shorter which makes it tougher to tangle or wrap around the kite. These shorter "V's" also give the kite a much more responsive feel as they are not connected to the back/steering lines which also leads to incredibly light bar pressure while maintaining full de-powerability for total safety. "


Look at these pictures.
The V in the bridle looks WAY longer at the BEST kite.

Waroo is a 10" aquarium fish

Allura is the name of a little french girl.

Altrenative, ideas I hope

Tiburon - shark

Warbird - airplane?

Sentry - guard/attacker

Wedge - raptor

Hammerhead - funny looking shark

Condor - huge bird

Vega - swooping eagle

Trax,

You may have mis read the post. Alex said Wing Tip V's not Bridle(LEI) V's.

You can't tell how long the wing tip V's are on the sonic because you are directly behind it.

alex whats the general price range and sizes offered for the new bow?


DISCLAIMER: These prices have not been finalized, but this is what we're thinking kite only:

7m $499
9m $599
12m $749
16m $899

P.S. sorry to those of you who paid $1,600+ for a bow kite...


I would rather pay 2000 for a kite than have all the problems that I suffered with the smellfish.


there is no contest here, sure if your new bows are free I will put one in the air.

Prices are really interesting, and I like the colors, although I am going to wait this year to Know what is really going to happen with bow kites.

Meanwhile I hope to try at least one to have a personal oppinion about them.

you call this already a bow ?!? Hmm, did I miss something ? I tried to find the Rapture2 photo which looked much more like a bow but I couldnt find it...

How about WEIRDO?

Best, K

.. two of my three kites are BEST, but just due to their price. Good that you learned that!

Best,

Will the Waroo use a conventional bar, or will it need a bunch of pullies and cleats?

Also, what will the wind ranges be spec'd at for each size?
