Yep, the Bravos are a bit expensive. The pump you showed above will only get your kite semi-inflated, maybe 2 psi, and then you'll have to hand pump the rest of the way. I am sure there are others using something similar to the one shown, but you need a piston pump to get the higher psi. Dpending on the kite size you will still need to pump 25-60 additional strokes (up and down) with a hand pump.big_d wrote:thanks for the responses I appreciate it,
at the moment i couldnt afford the bravo pump, so it would be a 40 dollar department store one,
the only thing im concerned with is if it is going to have enough pressure to fill it, I do see why it would not, but i've read that some times it doesnt, eventually im sure i will have both a manual and electric, but i only want to buy one at the moment

That's fine, but just be aware that the air inlet near the base is likely to inhale sand very easily, which will kill the pump pretty fast. The rubber seals and the lubrucant will get gummed up and eventually wear more quickly, and it will be more difficult to pump becasue of the friction.big_d wrote:thanks guys! I tried out the electric it sucked was also missing the charger, so i returned it and picked this one up, and it fills it faster then the electric, works like a charm, perfect!
