Photo Information for Jam Session by HQ Kites/Dodd Gross


Recommended Comments

A Jam Session was first serious DLK and main kite (among few at the time) during 1997-2000. This looks like the same model, just like mine minus all repairs. Those were the days...

I bought these two Jam Sessions back in 1996.   The vented version I purchased at an auction during the Outer Banks Stunt Kite Competition. I recently repaired both these kites.   When I pulled them out of the bags and assembled them, most of the leading edge connectors disintegrated.   They have now been replaced.

Hmm.. I already started doing the disintegration here during the end of the nineties mostly (including two of the LE-connectors)... However the LE connectors that survived the nineties, also survived my kite hibernation period ending 2016. Btw, 540ies are and look nice on this kite - it is still the kite I do them best on.

I also came out of kite hibernation in 2016.  The Jam Session was the trick kite of those days for sure.   I found the vented model to be the best kite I had for doing very flat double axles.   They do like to spin.

I haven't flown since 2003 - just a after Gulf War 11 started. My first kite, back in the late 1990s, was a Prism Fanatic, and a mate had a Jam Session (black rainbow). I wasn't at all bad at flying back in the day and probably would have bought the HQ rather than the Prism, had I known better. 🙂
