Mach 2 is Mylar
Black Tip is Dacron

reason enough to go for the Black Tip

What are you talking about?
Leading edge, canopy, struts,...?

Have you ever heard of people who had some problems with Fone stuff??? Same with Cabrina? Let alone the way the new mach 2 seem to perform. All the riders that i know who tested them are just amazed. Go for FONE.

? Neither. Try every kite you can and chose the one you like best. Personally neither of these kites turn me on. Try more.

LE, strut and even trailing edge are Dacron on the Black Tip. A mylar kites will delaminate eventually, it's only a matter of time.

I have never seen an f-one delaminating.
The new mach2 and the new takoon scoop 2 have a similiar design and construction but takoon use dacron on the LE and some new material.
BT is a diferent style.

Ride an Fone for a good season and look on the inside, it may be delaminating. They flipped the mylar to the inside. It the same material as Naish used on the Aero. Naish quit using that material for good reason.

I also heard from Freinds that the MAch2 flies like shit.
No comparism to the Mach1 - not as fast, not so manoevrable and depowerable.

Is that true ?
