Hey guys,
Figured I'd post this- my new Solus Prismatex (comp) headed here tomorrow, with its matching UL counterpart. The kites will now have pinstriped prismatex panels on the wings like this one, and the black will always be on there. Fancy bags with all come with it! Not sure what these look like yet as I've been back to school for awhile, but I'll post when I see them.



Enjoy!

WOW! That looks gorgeous! One of the best looking 'new' kite panel designs I've seen in awhile! Have you noticed any difference in flight characteristics with all the Prismatex panels?

Here's a few other colors I came up with that may or may not be options for the Prismatex Solus. [I didn't check with Jon or Marieanne to ask them what colors will be available.]



My apologies to Jon & Marieanne if I have been out of line here! I will delete the above photo on request from them.

We don't mind, it gives some idea's about how they look, I just finished building a new one for Mark Ledvina and it was really nice. I have to say I have had a lot of nice sails come through here that Pam and Mike have made but this batch is in a class of it's own. The detail and the work on the sails is hard to describe, different thread color for different color kites and they way the Prizmatex moves into the other panels. A lot of time goes into each one of these kites. The Solus Comp EC is a beautiful piece of kite art  made in the USA.
