There is a prize offered of a yellow, blue & black BMK Mako for the person with the closest guess to when those pesky DNS issues with kiteaddiction.com are finally resolved.  Kiss


For only $2,795 I could make a real close guess.   Smiley

Did the Addiction really steal its kite bag design from the Adrenaline?

I was right about that.  Cheesy

Not sure what happened to Wayne Knott.  He made some pretty sweet flying kites.

And which way am I supposed to wind up my lines?  Kite end or pilot end first?

If you fly with Ken McNeill, you better put that lower spreader ferrule on the right.

No kidding. He was serious.

The stated "Wind Range" on my kite is 2 - 30 MPH. Why am I having so much trouble flying it at 18 MPH?

With that wind range you obviously have a variable vented SUL.  Open the vents before you break those 2PTs!  Huh

Wind range endpoints explained:

Low end - you''ll risk cardiac arrest running to keep the kite in the air at or below this wind speed
High end - The frame will fold, sail will shred, and bridle will snap at or above this wind speed
Sweet spot - You can sit in a lawn chair and fly the kite in these winds. Seldom seen wherever you are

YMMV  Cheesy
