Has anyone had experience with this kite?

Yes, I use this kite in low winds with extreme long lines for having fun. ( in principle you speak with a rev pilot) Is very precise and floats through the air. You may indicate the kite as all-round. Let a real trick specialist give more trick comments.

I have an HQ Galago, which is, as I understand it, very similar. I was told the Galago "replaced" the Tramontana with minor changes. They were both designed for ballet, not free-style.

The Galago is one of my favorite kites. It is a very graceful ballet kite, in my opinion - responsive and fun to fly. But it is not designed for tricking. I don't trick, so that suits me fine.

If you want a free style kite, you could do much better. Actually, most or all decent free style kites are probably much more recent designs than 2001.

I see Teresa at the Kite Shoppe is selling Tramontanas, so you could get a better opinion from her, as well as other suggestions. If you want a great ballet flier, you will not be disappointed, however.
