A shout out to newer gear

Postby Toby » Thu Sep 09, 2021 6:18 pm

My last kite ripped in half.
The material was really used.

I am now on the same kite, but flown less.

Makes a difference in performance. I didn't get that much air on my kite I used a lot...the canopy was really soft...

Just wanted to make aware that newer material can make a difference to kite's performance.

So if you are after chasing your Woo records...make sure to have crispy kites ;-)

Toby you didn't read my post about recoating the canopy with Shoe Goo! If you had your old kite may not have ripped. And would have jumped close to new!
