Re: Duotone Juice 2020

The weight savings here puts the Juice into the same weight class / makes it a direct competitor now with the standard construction Flite (not aluula). Smart move duotone. Lighter dacron, lighter bladders- However the struts they are saying are made of “ripstop material” not dacron. So some uncertai...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

We may have the right to bear arms in the usa but if you ever actually defend yourself or your property with a gun you may very well end up wishing you had used it on yourself instead before ending up in prison ha Im not worried about getting a bigger than usual garden in. If things get that bad I c...

Maybe you get a little longer bar throw too which is nice but that may depend on arm length (I have long arms so can use it all) Otherwise I prefer abov...

Here in the USA with no leadership we can trust/count on to do jack squat, people are not waiting around for a government directive that isn’t coming. Various entities are taking it upon th...
