    • i will take this beauty. I am amaze after couple of days is still here 
    • Finally got one of these Tuesday. In hindsight this should have come before my Lams. Thought it would similar to my Hydra but more durable. More durable for sure but doesn't fly much like anything I've flown. First flights were in 10 to 15 mph pretty smooth winds. Hour in winds were dropping and got to the sul winds point. Like my Mongoose and Black Dog the kite flew pretty much the same as the winds varied. Yesterday went up in 15 to a bit over 20. WOW!! Moderate pull, really smooth loading with no yanking around. Thought the kite would be wilder and faster. Happy that it's not. Got other kites for that. Kite can dump wind really fast which led me to higher risk moves too soon. Need to learn the kite more before attempting much more than basic axle, turtle stuff in the higher winds. I've no doubt it's capable of flic flacs in 20 to 25 mph center window. I'd better be on a good day though. Kite doesn't feel very forgiving. It seems very deliberate without being methodical. Not a zany kite but still plenty of on the edge sensation. Really bumpy nasty stuff yesterday. Only kite that handles that stuff better is the Mind Trick vented. Bonded to my Tekken instantly and this kite just about as fast. Afternoon winds were getting close to 30. PSYCHO time. Now that kites zany!!! Imagine one 25% bigger with vents on 150# x 120' lines in 30 to 35 mph. OH MY!! Working on it cause the Superfly is the last kite I'll be buying for along time. Yeah I've thought that before but with a lot of help I've acquired a definite nirvana bag the last couple years. As kites wear out they'll be replaced but additions aren't needed. OH SNAP!! Speaking of Nirvana DAMN IT R-Sky. Really, really should have gotten a Superfly way sooner.
