    • Speaking of Widows   Dropped my straps next to this hole in August. After resetting kite came back and reached for them. Few inches away saw some movement in the hole. She'd popped out to protect her egg sack. SOB moment for sure. No rattlesnakes in the flying field this year but 2 of those rotten girls. Probably be some Jack rabbit sneak attack that doesn't like kites that'll do me in though. If you get bit by a Widow Maker Pro it won't hurt.Doubt you'll even feel a little sick. I'm on my 2nd set of lower APA connectors. Lines keep cutting them (it's me) and this set is about done. Cheap easy fix but it is a pain. Even though I had a Widow Maker and 2 Lam kites for along time the Hydra/Zephyr was my most flown combo. Having the Echo/Zephyr combo I think you can become a good low wind flyer a lot faster than me. The only kite I've found like the Echo that could take the bumps around here is the VIP II Gravity Performance. 
    • That looks like a decent deal. The sails weren't sewn by the same team as Lam kites. The original sails were sewn by Pam Kirk (sp?) who has passed away. This looks like an original. Steve Tapp, who made the sails for the WidowMaker Pro has also passed away. That's why I would say to jump on the chance to buy either, there won't be any more.
    • you might be able to work around shipping from Germany? found this on a German forum: https://www.drachenforum.net/boerse/index.php/Entry/6265-Widowmaker-Std/  
    • thanks Rob i'll figure out how to post  adverts and start looking for a  WM. as for the Ticca i think i'll wait on the reviews before i pull the trigger...even then it comes down to Breezin's original question...is the Ticca that much different from a Mongoose?  with 6 months and 10 kites into this hoby i have nothing to be ashamed of in terms of excess...just need to be a little more picky, hence the WM.  bob
