Why is the pump body censored in the picture? Top secret?

Is the time it takes to pump a kite also proprietary?

The Hein mini is fairly slow and time of course depends on kite size. There is obviously no low pressure phase. Some of my kites have individual struts which require balanced high pressure (10-12 psi) which can't be achieved with a manual pump. I normally use a hand pump to do the LE. I mostly use the vehicle pump (2nd pic) which is higher volume. The little one goes along when we use the jetski to go kite.

The coolest part, IMO, is the wand with built in power button and gauge. It puts you right by the kite valve and lets you achieve a very exact pressure. -If you are into that kind of thing.

Contact NSI if you want to see these produced. Maybe we can do a group buy since the pumps are not readily available. They were configured & made to order and I designed and custom built all the additional components.

The dewalt thing I'm using is a vacuum and a blower, you connect the hose on the leaf blower outlet and that's where the inflation comes from. Plenty of air and inflation to get the kite pumped. Typically I give the kite about 10 manual pumps to hit 8 psi. Super time saver for me as I typically have to inflate the wifes kite as well.

Looks like the Bravo BST is not available anymore...

What are the alternatives now? Need a pump urgently!

New improved model.

Google search for 'Bravo BTP kite pump' and find several dealers.
