It might not be a c kite, but it's hybrid and relaunches like a c


i saw a review that the hadlow id didnt relaunch easily, weird it has really fat wingtips, should be able to relaunch by tugging a line, I guess flexi went all out to give u the C kite feel lol

yeah it was quite a shock for me when I first got the kite and didn't know that it was possible to relaunch that way. Anyways once you got it, it's easy

With the flexifoi hadlow id, i just swim towards the kite or let myself get dragged downwind, and then it goes a bit on its back and i pull on a side line


thats not a c kite. i'll pass the info on relaunching bridle kites onto my grandpa though.

I pull opposing center and steering lines, even when just a steering line would do it, because I like my kite to rip me out of the water on as it shoots straight up through the window.

I flew that thing, and its a piece of shit and embarassment for Flexi. Dont all kites relaunch "like a c" if you apply that methodology.

I had a RRD Obsession before, and if I compare to the hadlow, the hadlow is 100x better, so i might be influenced by that, because it's such a good difference
