I like the single color and simple graphic.

Wainman has had fantastic graphics from day one.
All black or all white kites with a graphic style that has been coherent through the whole line up from the beginning to now.
Also the only company to put a graphic on the inside of the kite where the kiter sees it all day long.
I don't figure that color or graphics are ever deal breakers, but I do hate the super busy colorways and graphics some companies have been using to try to appeal to the younger kiter.
Too many non complimentary garish colors on a kite (North) hurts my eyes.
Graphics that try too hard to be hardcore. (LF, Best, North).
Single color kites are easier to look at after lots and lots of sessions on them, simple just gets better.

I too like the simple graphic and one color - but I have to say, though, that in any kite smaller than 5m, I'd prefer it to be bright orange or neon green or flourescent yellow or something like that. Think about the conditions in which you'd be using it... I personally prefer high visibility. Once the kite is down among breaking waves in strong wind, that white kite will be virtually invisible from a distance.

Same three on the fronts for each side. Upwind, Middle, Downwind.
Same three on the backs for each side. Slow, Medium, Fast.
Same two spots on each side to put the fronts on for direct (no bridle) connect.
Looks like the standard Wainman Rabbit attachment points as always.

EDIT: I did not see it until a day later, but there does appear to be a fifth line on that kite, for some unknown reason!!

IMO graphics are rarely "Deal Makers" but definitely can be a "Deal Breaker"

Agree that Wainman has a simple and nice professional style, and I'm always interested in a small powerful kite.

Yeah, I will admit the old Best (Pepto Bismo) Pink kites were out of the question.
Don't care for pink at all, not even women or baby girls wearing pink clothes.
But other than that one Best kite, I don't think color or graphics has ever kept me away from any other particular kite.

Yeah, is that a 5th line?

Makes sense in haywire conditions,,,, unless you roll it!

I love white kites. Too bad there is so much goose shit around here! I need to get one of those bandits in poo green!
