Title: SKD Seven SUL (pictures)
Post by: Doc Z on May 31, 2012, 06:27 PM
My Sportkitedesign Seven SUL arrived today.  She looks pretty sweet!  Definitely seems a bit on the delicate side.  Took a few pictures before diving into homework tonight.  Excuse the clutter - a new roommate recently moved in.

Couldn't decide what to expose for...

Ha ha - yeah, I'd imagine he (my roommate) wouldn't even know what to do with them.

Jörgen makes some damn fine kites, for sure.  This is production #1, too.  Can't wait to get it out on the field.  Will try to shoot some video at some point, but it always feels like such a production.  I'm lazy.

Just shoot and post... dont need any music but the wind. We need to see this thing fly since theres no video of this bird at all... and you know I want one.

So you will post video #1 of production kite #1... no pressure there... :)

Can anyone explain a non-native English speaker where does the name ''pinstriping'' come from?
I can see no relation between "striping pins" and black division lines on the kite...

Thanks,

N.

Again, beautiful kite.

 :D

American English is a funny thing, isn't it? "Pinstriping" as it's used here was probably started because that's the term used for a particular style of decorative painting on cars. As used for kite sails, you would probably define it as "outlining." Notice how individual pieces of the kite's layout are outlined in black. The thin black outlines represent pinstriping. I think. ;-)

Nancy  <---- who thinks your grasp of English is quite spectacular. Way-better than my Español.... or my own English, for that matter.

Thanks Nancy.

The what it is I had understood, but the why it is called like that was my doubt... and I think I still don't see it...  :-[
Since I don't want to deviate the topic of this post I'll start a new one.

Again, REALY nice kite!   :o

And I love the "pinstiping"   ;)    ;D    8)
and the transparent pieces in this SUL version.

Doc Z!
Can You describe Seven standard before You say something about Seven SUL.

I'm wondering is Seven stand.  to much livery on the line or it is peacefull....does it gives time to flyer to do slower tricks or need fast moves....

I read somewere that Seven std. it is similar as Gemini?

Thans a lot
I'm sure You will enjoy air-time with  new art kite.  :)
Also, in Your home too.... Make some nice coffie and enjoy how it look.  ;D ;D ;D

So what ever happend to this kite?

Post by: Charles P on September 14, 2012, 09:31 PM
Doc Z, I was hoping to get your impression of the Seven SUL. I recently bought a Seven STD and I love the thing!! It has helped take my flying to a higher level in just a few short weeks. Anyhow, I just put in an order for the Seven SUL and should be getting it by late Oct or early Nov. How does it fly compared to the STD? I was torn whether I should buy th UL or SUL so I researched it best I could before buying. My other option (before I flew the Std Seven) was to get an Ocius UL or SUL which I have flown. (nice kite)  To get to my point I decided on the SUL as I have a Zepher (which I struggle with) but I found that I can setup my std Seven to fly in winds almost as low as what the Zephyr needs so i went with the SUL.
 Do you have a Seven UL?
 Could you please give me comparrisons of the Seven SUL to the std and the UL if you've flown one? I would appreciate it!!
