Been riding Mutiny P Series kites 12m and 8m (2nd Gen) for a little while now and really like them and the bar system. Feels like a really good match for my riding style etc. I'm sticking with them but it sadly seems that Mutiny have pretty much fallen off the planet with the two main guys off doing other things.
Looking at my current quiver I need to add to it with a 6m. I've been right at the top end on the 8m a couple of time now to the point where the kite still flies really well but the performance drops off a fair chunk. It's basically outside its sweet spot.
In addition, thinking ahead my kites wont last forever and I'm guessing that they wont outlast my bars either so at some point I'l be looking for alternatives. I regularly look round for any 2nd had kites on the market but they're pretty rare here in the UK.
So what alternatives are out there that are firstly similar in performance, style and feel and I can still use the Mutiny bar with?
I also ride P-Series, but my brother flies North Vegas's. He had a broken line on holiday and I leant him my spare mutiny bar, which seemed to work fine. Ive flown his Vegas's a few times and they feel very similar to the P-Series. Not sure thats changed now Hadlow is on the label... his are 2-4 years old.
I hear Oli is working for Dyson these days.... Big shame they stopped pushing as I felt there was some real momentum building behind the brand.
Cheers for the reply. A little surprised that the Vegas works on the Mutiny bar as the North Bar has the high Y set up. Worth a further look I guess.
Also wondering if the Best GP's would work. Are there any other options I wonder
Yes I'd heard that one of the Mutiny guys works for Dyson while the other is working for a firm looking at electricity generation through kites. Shame as you say, Quality kites in my opinion. I don't know if it was due to financial issues or not. End of the day they've probably got families to support and bills to pay.
