  1. For those flyers that lust after a Lam Hoac-designed sport kite, but can't afford the price tag when starting out, Lam has entered into an agreement with Flying Wings to totally redesign the Silver Fox line-up of kites. I have several of Lam's newest AC kites & they are incredible kites, to say the least. I decided to try one of his new Silver Foxes to see how it compares to his own hand-built kites & the flight characteristics & QUALITY are spot on!!!! Keep in mind that Lam has done the redesign, & Flying Wings has done the manufacturing to Lam's specs. What is really exciting is that Lam then takes these manufactured kites & puts his own little performance tweaks into the kite. The kite is available now in either a Std or SUL version, & I understand Lam will have a Vented version in the fall (if not sooner). The price? around $200, which, for a Lam designed kite, with his tweaks, is a steal!!! Below is a photo of the kite & its graphics.
  2. Up for sale is a Silver Fox 2.3 Pro Std & Silver Fox 2.3 Pro UL. The Pro UL has been flown only twice & is in AS NEW condition. The Pro Std is BRAND NEW & has never been flown.Both kites were designed by Bell Chiu of Flying Box Studio (the Acrobatx designer). Dynamic wrapped carbon rods, pre-installed weights & ballast and yo-yo stoppers.BOTH SOLD
  3. But ain't it fun??????? As your skills grow & you look for something 'different' in a kite, you can sell your starter kites, knowing that there are others just starting out in this sport that can benefit from these kites.... & your knowledge!
  4. You've come a LOONNG way, Breezin, from the time you were looking at a Widow ng!!!!!! I commend your fortitude & determination to master these sport kites! Not always easy, but sure feels good when you do!!!!
  5. Deb, Please put me in line if either Warbird set doesn't sell
  6. It is a polyester sail & I do believe it is Icarex. I have 4 of Lam's ABS & I love them!! Also have a Fulcrum on order - can't wait to try that.....
  7. Unless this dealer has lowered its pricing, an Exodus Std goes for $215 & the Exodus Mid Vent goes for $245, plus the additional UL T-0 frame for the standard sells for $80. That's what I payed in May/June of this year. If they can be had for less, brand new, I can adjust as well. Both of the kites I'm selling are brand new & never flown.
  8. I purchased these Freilein Exodus Std & Mid Vent Quads in May/June of this year. Both are brand new & unflown. Both are 2017 models in the Cool colors scheme (purple/dk blue/mid blue/blk) & feature the round holes in the leading edge instead of mesh. Also included is the UL T-0 frame for the Std model to fly in lighter winds. Everything was purchased from the dealer that sells Freilein. I am selling these 2 kites because I purchased 3 of Lam's ABS kites (UL, Std, Mid Vent) & fell in love flying them. Freilein Exodus Std & sleeve + UL T-0 frame (2 frames) Freilein Exodus Mid Vent & sleeve SOLD PayPal accepted.
  9. I recently had Lam build me one of his new AC dual line stunters in SUL & received it yesterday. Let me first say I've been flying for a long time but gave it up in 2000 & just came back to kiting this year - so I am very much an 'old skool' flyer that progressed to doing only axels before I put my lines down. That being said, I took the AC SUL out for a 'spin' yesterday in very light winds (2-5mph) & my flying "came alive" again!!! Starting with just general flying, progressing to precision moves, & then on to some very basic 'tricks', the AC was flying as if by telepathy - everything I wanted to do in my thought process translated perfectly into actual kite maneuvers!!! I have never connected with a dual line stunter so quickly & so thoroughly as I did with the AC SUL!! I know I have a loonng way to go to catch up on all the latest tricks, but this kite is so capable of executing the tricks while providing razor sharp precision handling - and all so effortlessly!! The AC SUL makes kite flying FUN AGAIN!!!!!! I used to watch Lam compete in the '90's & knew then he was a world-class flyer - I hadn't realized he also became world-class in kite design/manufacture as well!!!! Here's a photo of my new AC SUL
  10. Fairly new to this Forum & have been a dual line flier mainly for 27 years. Sold most of my quads ..... until recently ... 1 - Quadrafoil 1- Rev B-Series standard 1 - ABS standard (newly acquired)
