Why do kite graphics designers always migrate towards having skulls on the products? Do people like skulls? I really dislike them, I didn't like it on my Crossbow kite long ago, and now I even found a small one on my new wetsuit!

I liked the graphics of the last blade vertigo much more. It was unique and nice. A skull is a typical run of the mill board sport image and I find it very ugly. Maybe other people like them but I do not know why.

Strange the description for the kite says "overly slanted wingtips."
Overly would indicate something not right.
The North Vegas had very slanted wingtips for years and worked great, as most kiters know.
If this kite is as good as the 2012 Primes were, then Blade has done well.

This is so next year they can say " perfectly angled wing tips "

Looks very similar to the Cronix, especially the tips. At least this was the first the picture reminded me.

The wingtips are not the nicest in the industry, but the kite is sick! I've been using it for some ocasions and it works perfect!

Shit lol

A black wingtip on a black background - you're doing it right.

Because kiting is like sailing and sailing had pirates. Pirates liked skulls so ergo kiters like skulls.
