Title: Info on Noname....old kite
Post by: SKITCH on April 03, 2009, 09:55 AM
Hey guys I was hoping you could help me out.  A friend pulled out an old stunt kite...the Noname.  I know I've heard you guys talk about it before when discussing "old school" kites.  What's the story on this kite and should I try to snag it from him to give it a go in order to experience some true old timey kite flying?

Thanks,
P

NoNaMe by Action Kites. 'Bout 20 years old, no standoffs (probably), nylon 'n' glassfibre. There's retro and there's just plain old.

I heard that the name came about because they could come with "no name" when designing the packaging.

I would love to pick one up to add to my old skool  collection. (http://"http://kiteking.t35.com/")

I've got a 3-stack already trained as well, not particularly attached to it.

You guys are killing my kite budget

I have purchased 14 kites in the last 2 weeks, the UPS driver is getting tired of coming to the house with those long boxes.

8 - Triblys
1 - Chicago Fire Bee
1 - MEFM
4 - No Na Me

Just looking around and found this thread.
The NoNaMe was my first kite! I picked one up when I was living in Hawaii.
Fun and fast turning.
I just picked one up from Charly!
Good memories!
