China Kite Review

Postby Toby » Tue Aug 26, 2003 1:40 pm

I ordered a ChinaKite as well, with my add on it.

Just to stop the hype from the beginning: it flies like sh... and the materials are not great.

When I pumped it up for the second time, already some seams ripped apart. Then on one tip the material looks a bit weired.
The valves are so long and you only can get the air out if you have a pin to punch it through - on ALL valves...

The kite looks ok and when in the air it flies quiet stable.
But when I took it out on the water I felt like a beginner, since it didn't create any power to get me going.
It is size 8.0 and it pulls like a 3-6 sqm kite.

Then I took out my Rhino2 8.0 to compare and I had great power and fun with it.

Now I even will not use it to showpeople kitesurfing in the water, only to fly it on shore, sicne it doesn't create any power.

So much to my experience with my ChinaKite.
It cost me some money, incl print and shipping,but I should have done a trip to Egypt for that money instead !
