I was just about to say "A smaller Cosmic is right up my alley" and then you dropped the prices.  That's over $700AU. :(

The XC might be smaller than the normal TC, but the prices are higher.

Presumably down to the framing.  Intersetingly they claim to be using Structil himod, which I thought hadn't been manufactured for years.  A case of using kiting gold dust perhaps. :-\

Aparrently it does, according to the four line review I read on another forum (not sure if I can link directly to that forum here... but if you want to read it, you won't have muh difficulty finding it in the Photos and Video section on that other forum). To quote the relevant part of that post : "After a couple of tricks i dared to set up for a flicflac and it went just normal. Flat and back to fade." HTH

So it looks nice, but  :o :o :o at the price...

Just the usual half dozen or so build run for Kitehouse again i expect  ::)
Does anyone actually buy their stuff at the prices they charge ?
