I'm just saying...the only race that kite would win is the race back to the beach to rig an Ozone, F-One, or Flysurfer! :lol:

Check out the wrinkles on the upper skin because their stitching is pulled way too tight. Not good for aero, poor manufacturing process.

Sonic 2 only has 49 cells.

But this looks terrible: wrinkles everywhere, dented nose and weird bulging/knicks to name a few.

There, you see? You've upset the budget brand fan boys, and now we'll have to endure a tidal wave of justifications like "not everyone can afford" and bullshit about "great value" and nonsense like "as good as" and outright falsehoods like "brilliant"...

Shut up kami. Not everyone can afford the expensive brands, these are great value, they are almost as good as and I say that's brilliant.


:lol: :lol: :lol:


But seriously kite looks interesting, comments about wrinkles with a picture of it sitting on the ground are a bit far fetched, but then wrinkles are something pansh is not the best at. Looking on the pansh site there is more pics, wrinkles don't look major.

Hopefully pansh has tested it thoroughly and is well past the point of selling kites needing adjustments out of the bag. But I do worry as high ARs are seemingly difficult kites to design and pansh was very quiet about this, so not sure if or who was testing it. Weird how it is targeted as a high performance kite but it is missing mini ribs in the TE. Z bridle tensioned looks well shaped, although not the very best for performance either, but still a very good sign the kite is designed well!

Pansh cant even get their other depower kites to fly right and they have a new one already. they should focus on sending out quality working kites and upgrading the models they already have instead of bringing out a completely new model every year with various issues. I wish I could take pansh seriously because it would be great to get kites at a cheaper price but I don't think they care about the sport of kiting more about making a few bucks here and there. and look at the prices they have tripled.
