Title: A new Kite in my bag. SkyDog Jammin' Designed by Doss Gross
Post by: Jorge Gouverneur on October 25, 2013, 06:54 PM
Got my new Jammin' kite so I decoded to give it a try. I flew it at night with barely no wind. Trying to get the most out of 1-2 mph wind puffs. For sure was a great workout.

Nice kite to fly.

Here is my video.

Thanks NormP:

I Was using the lines that came with the kite. 150 Lbs./80 Ft Lines.

For the cascades keep your eyes on the nose. concentrate on making a small tug with the opposite hand from where the nose is pointing. When the nose is pointing left tug right hand, when is pointing right tug left hand. and just keep the cycle going.

I love your Taz's !

And they have given me some ideas to try to achieve them too. I must try them soon.

Very nice video.

Thanks Ara:

The Taz is one of those tricks that not all kites can do. I have a French Connection 2 (one of my favorite tricking kites) that its impossible to pull a Taz out of it.

Let me know how it goes.

Nice flying!

I take it that this is the latest version of the old Jam Session?  If so it's certainly a lot more tricky than my old Jam Session (2001) use to be - very impressive.

I do like Dodd's/Skydog kites - Clean lines, simple frames and good performance, my sort of kite. Sadly they are no longer available from UK dealers and seldom turn up used. Pity as I quite fancy trying the Crossfire!
