I'm not even sure it would be fair to call Gong "followers". They were a "small" brand, but have been growing rapidly & probably increasing their own experimentation & design. Also, some small brands - like BRM - have definitely been "leaders" in experimenting with new designs ... which are then followed by the larger brands.bjw wrote: ↑Tue Dec 22, 2020 10:45 pm1) reflect the kite's performance expectations
Every kite brand performs well in 2020 if the designer has been in it for a while
2) be reliable
3) have top materials (beautiful and performing)
All brands are produced by massive manufacturers, with materials commonly commonly available, eg Duotone SLS material also used by Eleveight (but they name it differently)
4) have nice graphics
All brands are pretty good
5) last but not least, have good customer support.
This one can differ massively.
In saying this some brands are market followers eg Gong ,where as others lead ,experiment and push design.
In regards to your material. They have a coating on it to make it dry quicker, almost like a paint. When folded they crease. That will look worse as it ages. But it doesn't reflect quality.
Why would you buy a Duotone kite from another country when there was a supplier for Duotone in your home country?
