Post by: adx1592 on April 29, 2010, 07:55 AM
I need opinions!!

The Ocius Colorizer is up so I've been tampering with it... here are the results.

Option 1

This One is for a standard AND UL model. No color Change.

It's a bit dull. There - that's one opinion for you.  :-[

One main sail colour plus four diddy little centre panels is all you get ? Nothing earth-shattering is coming out of that. Hopefully it flies well 'cos I can't see it selling on looks alone.

Mike,
curmudgeonly.

One thing about all black kites... they're hard to see against certain backrounds. One of the beaches I fly on has a wooded cliff, and it is next to impossible to see the kite & it's orientation against it. If you fly out in the open, there's no issue except in the winter with low light conditions. All black looks cool, but is not great for certain conditions.

I tried that one, and it kept reminding me of  PBSK, so I veered away from that one.  Thanks for the option tho!

Not sure yet, Jons out of the country. He gets back sunday and I'm going to give him a call on monday. I'll post here when I know something. I know the first real sail came back to him from the makers just about a week ago and I haven't talked to him much sence. I'll keep you posted.


thanks for all the input everyone, I'll keep tampering with it but I think im going with Option A or set 3.

Mr. Emery,

With your penchant for subtle, this almost subliminal offering should have been welcomed instead of being deemed dull.

Maybe we should have a "Save The Ocius Sail Pattern Contest" with people using the colorizer as a starting point and adding the odd panel here and there.
 :)

John,
I'm sure if you send them an email they can split them up for a custom or something. Ya never know until you ask right?

ANyways, thanks for the opinions guys, I'm going with set3

I don't think any color layout is going to make that kite look good. Should change the name of the company to Eye Burner.

Don't be a jerk John, to each is own.

Devin:

If dark is not an issue for you what is wrong with the black-red-yellow design Jon uses for the Ocius on his website ?  That seems to be a good choice based on the panel variations you have.

Just looking for a real custom I guess.
In the Prodancer SUL video we filmed the kite had a grey sail and I really liked how it looked, so I transfered that sail onto the Ocius and messed with the Middle. Sence the stuff I compete with is all blue, I figured this one should be blue as well, and BAM! Set 3.  :)
