So far that PL arc takes the cake. That was the first kite I bought new..... 2003.

Alcoholics was a classic! Instrumental in my initial addiction.... Anyone have that flick?

So little strain on the fabric that thing is likely to last forever. Too bad they are sooooooo slow and underpowered. Try flying one back to back with a BRM cloud and you may never rig it again!

My Peter Lynn Gorilla will scare all your pussy kites away :cool2:
I learned on that kite, in 2003 ; the next one out was the Venom , and
i still use that 10-M a Lot on land . Most used kite in water was the
13M Ozone Edge , 2008 ; it is faster and has a wider wind-range than
any of the newer Edges i now have.

2004 Nemesis 16 which is still my go to kite for low wind(winter kite). I bought many other kites in an attempt to replace that beast but I always end up selling the new kite and hold on the the Nemesis. It turns like a duck but pulls like a truck. just last week I sold the Cloud which would start earlier but just would not jump anywhere comparable to the Nemesis. I am still open for suggestions. BTW I paid $200 for the kite back then used. By far the best use per paid $.

The most astonishing thing is that the kite has had ZERO repairs, no leaks, just some beauty patches from shell-scratches. Beat That.

My summer kite is a 2013? GP since I destroyed my C4 ... G

2004!! THATS RIDICULOUS!

OMG I just couldn't handle the decrease in speed. If your looking to match air time, I think a cloud is the wrong direction. Look for a Ozone edge or try one of the newer foils.

Yep, the first round of kites they came out with which wrre actually EH kites design. they bought the design from Eric as for the first gen Yarga - which I still own but actually never use.

The only problem is turning speed which still is way better than a speed 3 in 19 which I also owned along the way. In general if a kite turns faster it performs significantly inferior in light wind or doesn't jump - like the cloud. I actually started on foils - the very first Speed FS had - baaaack in the days fore anything reasonable came up. I think it was even before the Mastair - ever tried that monster?

Yes an Edge is still in my list as is the North Dyno. Time will tell !-)
