  1. Old Unflown Shanti Kites

    Hi all! I've been out of town for work and haven't gotten to fly for a bit. I did however make it to my parents place where 2 used kites were waiting for me. They got them (plus a large single line delta) off Craigslist. There person they bought them from got these kits for his kids in the 90s but never flew the dual lines. Thanks to the instructions I know the large one is a Shanti allegro, framed in high modulus carbon. One part of the bridle came untied but I think I can fix that. The kite has these wing battens which are new to me too. The other is also a Shanti, and looks real nice, but I can't for the life of me find the model. There kites came with lines, one set of Shanti Zip #150 lines and one set labled 90' #150 "comp" which I'm pretty sure is their speed line? Anywho, I'm just looking for info and maybe tips on these kites before I take them up I've included some pics and can take more when I get back from work today. Thanks!
  2. Skybond Now

    So recently I aquired a set of Shanti Skybond 100'x100# quads. I told myself in the beginning...I would fly both major makers and form my own views on what I liked. So no better time than now! I have flown a full year or so with LPG, different weights and lengths..so time for a change. I have about 50 hours or so on this Skybond set. I have to say that I am liking them. After flying opk with Skybond lines, my interest peaked even more... good timing as I am in need of all lenghts and weights again. My initial thoughts were super slippery. The coating used is great so far. A little color fade...but the set has been in the ocean completely for many hours...I swim and fly or float and fly. .hit sandbars...etc... I hope in the long term...this coating holds up, I dig it. Almost has waterproof properties when wet...sheds water very quick. On the plus side....no clumped up sandy lines when winding up Smaller diameter line compared to Lpg..which equated to less drag and a more direct feeling between me and the kite...almost like running a lighter weight line. I am tickled "yellow" so far and looking for the long term picture as I begin the switch..... I only have 1 gripe with LPG in the end...longevity. I have been wearing out sets at alarming rates...even with regular rotation.up and down..and switching ends. So we will see what transpires from a change this year... What do you fly and why? If you fly Skybond already.... what's your comparison to LPG?
