It was a combination of minor things that was difficult to show in pictures. Premier said it was within specifications but wanted it back. It probably would have worked fine but I wanted Premier to advise me about it.
The spine weight pocket on the bottom was sewn on crooked, and it looked to me like it pulled the sail off center a little.
I think one wing was shorter than the other by maybe 1/2 inch. I didn't measure the wing lengths because it was already going back.
I noticed that the leading edge bungee string knots were tied at different lengths but had the same tension. And one was tied 1/2" longer than where the red mark was for the knot. When I tied the knot on the mark to match the other one, that wing was excessively tight to assemble. I think someone tied it longer to compensate for over tension due to one side being shorter, if that makes sense.
A small 2 inch section of stitching on the leading edge was questionably close to the edge.
No worries. I will still buy one when I can inspect it first. I have no ill will toward anyone.
As far as stains go, I don't really care about minor stains cause it is going to get used and abused.
But yes mine had a faint stain also.
Premier said all of them that they inspected had stains. Kites and Fun Things said that is normal for this kite.
