    • I have and fly both. They are two different critters. Your flying style and how you want the kite to respond will determine which is the one to use. Neither one is better than the other, just different. The price reflects the materials used and the wrap pattern, which also account for the differnces in performance. The one thing that is dramatically different is the response time, how quickly it returns from bent to straight. The Diamond frame is much quicker in response, and therefore more suitable for a yank-and-spank flying style than the P90. Both are lightweight, light wind tubes. In wind of 1/2 mph or less, the P90 will require less "pumping" because of the slower response, and will make the kite move more smoothly. The only way to appreciate the difference is to fly both in the same sail in the same conditions. If you are just starting out with quads you will probably not notice much, if any, difference. It doesn't become noticeable until you gain a bit of proficiency in flying very light wind. Once you cease to struggle in a 1/2-mph breeze, the difference will become readily apparent.
    • I have a set of Diamonds and love but hear good stuff about the Skyshark frames. Even Bazzer is putting them in his Pheonixs!

    • http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=13662.0 I have a 2 month old now so I forgot exactly how it flies but if u have masking tape n a dremel with cutting disc or hobby hacksaw, ur good to go ! 
    • You can see here the extra row "D" of bridals to support the rear of the foil on a quality kite. Joel is restraining the kite after a learner got into a death spiral at launch after a handle slipped out of his hand. The brake lines work by adjusting the wings very trailing edge, just like ailerons on an aircraft. The 4 rows support the wings shape. At speed we reflex (let the brakes off to actually move the trailing edge slightly higher than the natural position of the airfoil) the trailing edge for even more speed.  In the shot you can see how far back the kite is supported. The brakes are pulled on here to slow the kite for the photo. This is me with my 13.4 square meter Peter Lynn Vapor. And my 6.5 m2 on a beach in Queensland Australia. Hope this gives you some idea of the location of the support bridals.      
    • Thinking about what to get myself for Christmas... Rev Diamond Rods are on the list. Curious if Skyshark P90's are near equivalent for about half the price... Anyone have any thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
