"Way too fucking expensive"
He is just trying to find something negative because he does not want to spend the money!
Just keep on your old kites and save a packet.
Note to Zen and others: If you dont want to spend a lot of cash,dont try kites that you can't afford! Whats the point ?

The chicken loop length and being able to unhook confortably are my main worries. Have you had any experience doing anything unhooked with it???
I haven't riden it so i am only speculating by simple conceptual understanding that once you unhook you are going to be really powered.
When are they coming out with the power lock option???
No need to keep flogging a dead horse !
Why did you bring Dacron into it ?
You got that from SQ ? A lot of dough for a Dacron kite ? When you can get a Hellfish for a couple hundred more ?
Sure it may be a bit pricey,but as I said ,no one is twisting your arm to buy one. This is cutting edge,for those that are not worried about what it may or may not be worth in a year or second hand.
Just wait,of course the price will be a lot less in a year,or so,or when the season is over. What ever.
In the meantime,you can pick up a good deal on a Best kite. (I'm betting that you already have them!)
You didn't hurt my feelings at all. However ,judging by the length of your response,and the general tone,I seem to have hit a nerve with you. You are obviously a tightass!!
Good luck to you,you wont end up poor like me!
I actually thought your review was quite interesting.
Especially the part about the "vague" feeling. You may have a point. Of course the Crossbow may not suit everybody.
I will double check. I like to know where the kite is as well.
Breeze wrote:With old kites, there wasn't as much range so when you did unhook, the power wasn't much different. With the crossbow, given the told range abilities, won't it be alot more powered when you unhook?
Does the crossbow powerstrap work under the principles of the x-bow 2:1 pulley system or by old standards of depower.What I am trying to ask is, how much de-power does the crossbow powerstrap have on its own? (a new x-bow amount or the same as kites before)
