Used Kite Questions: Eclipse, Pro Cheetah, Hot L'il 54 or new Kite?

Post by Chad Vanc » Fri, 21 Mar 1997 04:00:00


I have a dilemna!  Please help if you can....

I can purchase several used kites for a good price, or one NEW kite.
What can you tell me about the following kites?  (such as good used price,
price new, frame type, wind range, trick capability, good for a beginner?,
etc...)
Premier - Eclipse (NOT Prism)
Wind Toys - Pro Cheetah
Into the Wind (?) - Hot L'il 54 (I was told this is a cheap version of some
expensive kite?  which expensive kite?)

Or I have been looking at the Prism Spark, Ion, or Fanatic.  Which would you
choose and why?

Thanks for your help!
Later,
Chad

I would go with the Fanatic, it is a current design with a respectable wind
range.  I've only flown one I don't own one ( I have an Illusion).  It is
capable of the latest tricks and has the dead launch advantage.  You can
get it as a starter kite including lines and video, or a la carte.

Try them all if you can, I may be a little partial since I live in Seattle.
