We are working on putting a bit more of the prizmatex on the wingtips also.
We hope to have enough material to make 12 kites.
The colors can be changed except for the black outlining the prizmatex. 
It can be either a standard or an ultra lite. 
These kites will be extra special. 
 

Four already spoken for so eight left.

Tom, is that the old demo Nebula ? I love my kites with Prismatex... reminds me of the days going to Grateful Dead shows ! I need a Solus UL, wish I had kite funds right now...

Rob, indeed it is.  I wish I could fly that one again - I haven't seen a Nebula, or Reggie in a very long time.

I'd forgotten that you had one. 

I fly with a local flyer who has a purple Qpro with a bit of Prismatex where the pro has Mylar - very subtle and looks great. 

As I understand it, the product, like lams slick black leading edge material  is no longer made.
