me first kite set (Silver Fox)


Recommended Posts

Wen, it was nice seeing you fly at BASKC this weekend. I managed to spend a little time on Scott Weider's standard Silver Fox the end of Saturday. Interesting kite, but then I am "old school" and don't know all these new tricks. New kites really want to jump on their back at the slightest provocation.

flew a SUL rainbow Rev

And you made me smile every time you landed it on the "Staff" and "Kite Store" tents. Some pretty impressive side slides considering the lack on wind on Sunday.

DOH!! That's explains why I couldn't identify it. Should have just asked you what it was, instead of going bald scratching my head. Very pretty SUL.

I never noticed the extra bowing. Hasn't made much difference to me, I still haven't got past a fade yet. I've been concentrating on multiple

kite flying with my yukons for the last few months. Only brake out the silverfoxes when the wind gets too low or too high for the yukons.

I'm planning to fly the silverfoxes together just to see what they look like. I know I'll have to contend with different speeds and pull. If they work well on

100' lines I'll invest in 2 more silverfox std's next year. If not, I might get 3 acrobatx or maybe french connections. I've just ordered 2 Desire UL's today. I already have one. This kite will fly when the silverfox UL wont.
