  1. Thanks Frob and CJay, fantastic insight and just what I needed. I think I'll go with the KHK Skycraper (rebranded Widow NG). Can't beat the price and your point on spare/replacement parts is well taken. I've only heard good things about KHK customer service so I'll go that direction. Also, I am looking for some good pull, love hearing that its loud and especially like the idea of having a versatile, tough kite to learn on.

  4. Hi there, I'm a new member hailing from Charleston, SC and am seeking recommendations for a solid, versatile first framed delta dual line kite. Hopefully I'm using the right terminology there... I've been flying kites since I was a little kid, and have some experience with different framed kites (the Flexifoil psycho my uncle had many years ago comes to mind), but my experience is primarily with foils of all sizes. These days I'm essentially a weekend warrior, beach flyer. I absolutely love taking my foils out to the beach and getting yanked around in the sand or while out in the waves.
