Karma August 26 Banshee Scimitar

Recommended Posts

And Now for Something Completely Different  (It is not a “dead parrot” 🦜 - Monty Python’s Flying Circus reference) 

For my Karma Drawing offering, I’m putting up a classic kite that I think very few of you have in your bags - A Banshee Kite Company Scimitar (smaller model). This is a bow shaped stunt kitethat is the sport kite version of the famous “KiteSki” that started kiteboarding ( along with the Wipika" kite ).

It’s a strange, but stable flying kite - instructions are included. This kite is in excellent condition.

Let’s run this till August 26, comment below to indicate your in.

 

Some rules and guidelines:

Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.

Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.

RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.

You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.

Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!

This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.

When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it.  

The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.

 Good luck, and have fun!

I'm in, would be silly for me not to be. The instructions and I parted ways decades ago and I'm now of the age that I might actually read them. 

This is an endorsement rather than an entry. I've owned the 10' version of this kite for almost 30 years. I've (almost) exclusively been flying quad line since I got back into kiting in April, yet I always have the Scimitar in the truck. Not for me, but for anyone who might want to give it a try. Over the years it's been a lot of people's first taste of sport kiting. On a recent day trip to Corolla with extended family I didn't bring a Revolution onto the beach, but I did bring the Scimitar for my niece and nephew. They're from central Texas and were more interested in the ocean. Oh well, their loss was my gain. 

 This is a fine example (better cared for than mine) of a fun kite with some really unique flight characteristics. Kick back, throw a tail (or three) on it, and have fun with it. Then share that fun with others.

Thanks.  Now on to the mammoth task of deciding what I want to post up for the next Karma.

This is a fun kite.  Quite different from anything I have flown though I'm not sure I had it put together right.  I even got it to side slide and do a sloppy axel.

 

The new Karma is submitted and should be up shortly
