Just got a new Niknak yesterday, and when the wind dropped off this afternoon and was too low to fly my Rev 1.5 Std with Race Rod, I got out the Niknak. My other low wind Kite is a Prism 4D. The first thing I noticed about the Niknak, is that it is much larger ( 78" ) than the 4D' s (58") . The fittings that the spreaders fit into are much more substantial, and the entire kite has a rugged appearance especially for an Ultralite kite, much more so, than the 4D. The Niknak was shipped with 100# 75' lines, and I wondered how it would be to fly with that heavy a line, but with about a 2-3 mph wind, it launched quickly and easily , and flew right to the top of the window. The kite is a great kite for flying around, which is what I was looking for. I am not into tricks, but more into flying nice patterns, and this kite is right at home with that kind of flying. It is made in the USA, the entire kite looks like a quality product. I wanted a kite with some red in it, so they made one for me with that color. Just like getting a custom kite. I can see that I will fly this kite often, in the winds that we have in Atlanta, and enjoy every minute of it. It almost seems like it flies itself, in low winds. I now look forward to the lower end of the wind spectrum, rather than dreading it. There are two battens that go in the wings, that are about 5 " long. To make sure I don't loose these, since they are very thin, I put them in a small baggie when I break the kite down, and strap them to the line winder, which goes in the kite bag. The kite comes with a nice long bag, that allows the kite to be placed in the bag without having to break the leading edges down.
