Wonder if anybody can give me some advice on a kite purchase.
I'm looking for a delta stunt kite that is going to perform
well in strong winds (15-35mph) and which generates a lot
of pull, but it still reasonably agile and fast. I've
spoken to several shops, and I seem to get conflicting
information on different models, so I thought I'd appeal
to the net.
Kites that have been suggested so far include:
Benson Tempo and Bantam,
Rare Air Cheetah,
Can anybody offer any advice on these models, or suggest a strong,
high performance delta? It would be much appreciated.
Being a 'power' junkie I have had foils suggested to me by several
folks. I'm hoping to get a foil (flexifoil super 10 perhaps) but
I'd like a fast and furious delta to go with it as well. I've also
had stacking suggested to me as well, but it seems like an expensive
One last question (sorry to go on!) but has anyboy seen, flown
or heard of the French Paimpol Voiles range of kites? I've
looked at the Salto model and it seems very impressive from the
technical blurb (force1-force7 flying range!) but haven't found
a UK dealer that has flown one yet :o(
Thanks in advance.
