Toe-
Wainman have always had black kites and have always had white kites.
Maybe you have just seen more black Rabbits because more people will choose the dark color to mask dirt and grass stains?
Did you have nuns in big black habits hitting you in school when you were little? :P
Why the black kite distaste? Flying Mold? ....don't you like expensive cheese (mold) ?

yeah, i guess that is a fifth line. i was also looking at the two 'lines' immediately above and below that fifth, but on further inspection, those are probably just seams in the kite itself. anyway, odd to see a fifth on any Wainman, let alone a tiny one like this. next gen?!

Sure hope they won't complicate things with 5th line. Works perfect as it is right now :) And no one pump please!!! Btw, as far as i know, they don't plan on releasing a new one for next 2 years?? You sure thats not an old prototype?

Yup, totally different than everything else.
Basic black and white kite colors. Something interesting to look at for graphic added.
I don't really care if they have Rabbit characters on them or not.
I am not a fan of your choice of kite brands (1980's snowboarding colors), always ten completely different colors, painfully bright, and completely non complimentary to each other, it hurts my eyes.
North chose hard colors to look at in 2004 and they have stuck with it.
But like you said, takes all sorts.

I have to say that that I really liked the 2010 & 2012 but God only knows what they were thinking this year. The writing on the kites is as bad as it gets, I'm hanging onto my lovely 2012's for as long as possible.
