Ok..sure, would you say that the Mach 1 is better than both the rhinO and the Fuel?? Have you tried either of them?

Hi,

No I haven´t try the Rhino and the Fuel yet, and I don´t say it are shitkites. But my point is; F.one is sometimes forgot, but it are great kites!
I think all kites are good now.....Now it´s the choiche(???) which kite you prefer and you like. I´ll like the Fuel not, but the Mach 1 and the Rhino a lot. Test it and see it for yourself!

Greetings,
Jorrit

When you get a Rhino, buy it kite-only and get a different bar like the new ones from Takoon or Wipika(safety systems included!)

I love my Rhino's but then again any 2002 kite seems to be OK.

I have tried, flown, and owned both the Rhino and the Fuels....and I kept the Fuels and sold all the rest. The f-ones seems to fly good, but I have no insight on their durability and whatnot as I have never owned one of their inflatables.

I personally feel that the Takoon bar has a bit TOO MANY bells and whitles on it, I prefer the SlingShot Pro Carbon,..it's cleaner and simpler, but that's just my opinion.

The 2002 SlingShot kites consist of more than 100 pieces, a claim that most other kite companies are just now starting to make. I say..go ahead, go fly them all side by side and see for yourself. While you are at it, take note on the construction of each kite.
