Awhile back I asked for input on what to get for a 6 - 12 MPH kite, ended up with a Mamba.(Super easy process with Ken).  Got to fly it today(8-10MPH) went well.  Much easier to fly than I was anticipating.  Did an axel two different times completely by accident as I was playing around at the top of the window.  Problem is I really do not know what I did to make it happen.  Had a video for you showing my mad skills which ended with me doing a stall and then a quick wing drag and landing.  Unfortunately the wing drag ended up being my landing.(hence the CarbonCrusher).  Video was too big to post.  Picture instead.  Blue

Ooh la la!!!!

That's a nice one!!!! Yup....very "easy" kite(s) to fly, and yes it will "give away" some moves while still retaining that mystery of wtf was that???? There are many reasons why the Mamba has been around for such a long time and still rules the roost as it is by no means a one trick pony...one of the best allrounders ever!!! I think you will be very and pleasantly surprised at how well it will fly and perform in UL wind territory!! (Sometimes I enjoy my std Mamba  more than my ul Mojo in low winds) Most definitely a kite you'll want to grow and dance with.....

Thank you, I am new to the game, but I really like how it seems to stay hooked up, or how it will float if I give it line.  Glad Ken made it for me(also got some extra sticks).  Flying the more responsive kites has allowed me to fly my Whizz in the high winds.  That kite is quite fussy in the sky, and super fast.  So at this point I am covered for high and fairly low wind.  Like the hobby so far.  Did not get a Level One kite, but the people there are very nice and responsive.  Need to get a Badass at some point.  Blue

I have been conversing with Ken via email, and fancy a Mamba, but the cost of delivery  to UK, which isn't to bad, plus the import duty total up a fair bit. Also at the moment the delivery US to UK is long winded. Would love to get a UL and standard to save on. shipping cost, but the personnel banker (wife) would probably object.

Just now, CarbonCrusher said:

Just do it

Very tempted, according to Ken delivery could be 6 weeks or more, not because of him, but the shipping is slow due to Covid.
