Re: When will the kite industry provide something other than chicken loops and hooks?

Apart from the Fireball and all rope slider spreader bars, there is another hook-less design that wasn't a great market success. NP Halo, link below. The guy who designed it is at new North now and they bought Mystic. Let's see. P.S. Not that easy for swapping a flying kite though. The Fireball spre...

Re: Bruno is developing an autozenith tube kite

autozenith is easy to do, you put the center of mass behind the center of pull. On a foil kite that happens pretty easily on a tube kite it's really hard without changing the properties of the kite a lot because you have so much mass in the leading edge.

I don’t like the stuff of wetestkites because of that. Not only for the Orbit...
I have different stuff in my quiver at the moment. All is impressive.
Carve, Orbit, XR6, pivot, Boxer
50% of the kites in the RedBull KOTA Semi-finals were the Orbit... it can't be that bad :lol:

There needs to be a 2.0 carbon version to break out of it’s little corner.
The Carbon Spitfire XXLW wings might be coming soon, but not sure about a carbon mast/fuselage.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Standard rip stop I meant sorry. Not Dacron. Trouble is if you have an accident it’s usually the Rio stop that tears or gets the pin holes. So are they really any tougher than a standard kite for all that money. It’s only really light wind all this fancy stuff becomes relevant as soon as it’s over ...
