I gave up on this kite all ready. I'll get excited when or if it ever comes to market. But we need a c-kite revolution. They are safe and so much more fun than all these bridal kites claiming to be C's.

3 struts,I hope it isn't going to end up RPM like, and the leading edge can be kept slim in diameter unlike the delta wainmans.

a c for sure, doesn't even look like tips are big enough to reverse launch, not rpm like.
We'll have to keep waiting and waiting and see, looks cool even if never marketed.

There has been pics of this kite for a couple of years, probably different protos. I'd be keen fly it and see how it goes, but like Joe said, I'll get excited when it comes out. I'm sure Wainman wont release it until they are really happy with the set up. If they do ever sell them, I hope they make it so you can tune it for really slow turning for wakestyle.

Looks very nice, simple and to the point. Judging by this picture it looks like there are several connection points for both the center and rear lines. I'm sure the kite will be able to get tuned just the way you'd like.

It's going to be exciting times for Wainman this year gentlemen... :naughty:

Personally I would like to see Wainman work on the Rabbit line in terms of boosting the efficiency just a tad. I think it is easily better then any C kite in waves any only lags in jumping height and centered unhooked pressure (not by much) compared to C's.
