    Truly an experience I will never forget(except that one night) If you get the chance, make sure you bring lots of RedBull and Coffee, cuz the experience doesn't stop till ya head home

    Yea, it was great flying with you. maybe i'll be able to fly duals next time also. Heck it took me 5 minutes to teach everyone the couple tricks i know. After next weekend they will be posting Youtube videos Sent from my SCH-S720C using Tapatalk 2

    it has been an awesome experience! Some many great people and a pure love of kiting from everyone. All kiting, all day and deep into the night.

    This couldn't have happened at a better time! I've been looking for an excuse to get down and visit the EC guys... A little schooling from J.B and a reason to get out of Michigan in winter.... Was the perfect push i needed. See ya there! Sent from my SCH-S720C using Tapatalk 2
  11. Your favorite kite bag?

    i break down all my LEs so i dont need a long bag. I found this on amazon under field hockey. it holds 8-10kites depending on cases(fit my zephyr hard case, 4d case,2 revs, slk and 2 more duals). the 3 ext. pockets are awesome for lines, staked,mp3... whatever. $30 Sent from my SCH-S720C using Tapatalk 2

  13. Kite Lights...

    like it. extremely bright and light i bet. I've been working with the LED strips. waiting for school to get out for my son to be able to do some night
  14. I have been trying to get my wife flying and haven't been too successful until now... obviously two kites have been broken, which is common while learning. I let my wife fly a Jazz which is in your price range and has been pretty durable. It has taken some MAJOR hits and keeps flying. The spine finally failed and pierced the sail in two places but it was still airborn and I just replaced it with a piece I had laying around. I do cringe when she flies, worrying about broken parts. At the last festival I picked her up a Snapshot 1.2 foil. Nothing to break and it packs up small, wind range about 6-25mph. It is well under your price range and will get your girls out flying and learning the basics without worrying! It's not a delta, but it is a dual line that doesn't pull very hard. After some time, you can always upgrade to something better as long as they still enjoy it!
  15. First post, and a brief newbie review

    Premier WIDOW!!!! it is a low budget WIDOWMAKER. they are just over the $100 mark and will trick pretty nice for you. Jon T. (designer of the widowmaker) may have some reworked widows still at kitesandfunthings. the quantum is not a trick kite, not saying it can't, but as a newb(like me) it's not fun, but it is very durable and needs more wind. It pulls like a truck. I think the Hypnotist would be a better bet in the prism line. Silverfox's are also nice and inexpensive. my money is still on the WIDOW. have fun!
