Hi guys,

As per title, do you know anything about these kites? Are they a good puller, fly well, well made etc?

The mystic is the bigger of the 2 and im thinking of buying it.

Thanks :-)

Here is a review I did of the XXL:

Amend the review in that the battens were the correct length, I had them on the wrong side. DUH.

The Mystic is a big Prism Radian with a 420 cm wingspan.  Cheesy

No power, no speed...  Sad

Hi guys!

Well, I bit the bullet and ordered myself the mirage xxl from chill out kites, 300 euro posted.

I really did have my heart set on the matador but spacekites seems dead.

Anyway im happy with the reviews etc for the mirage xxl, it comes with 35m line, but im going to ask Manfred at kites4u to make me some longer as well, its on 100m spools and hes quoted me about 100 for dual setup, so im thinking 1 set at about 70m (I like longer lines) and other at 30m? Or...

60m set and a 40m set?

Its Climax protec which I guess is one of the best lines to get?

The only reason I didn't recommend the Fazer XXL was your

specific list of requirements. I didn't feel the Fazer XXL was what

you were looking for. I liked the kite.  Smiley

Ahh, no probs :-)

I was deciding at the time between the Fazer xxl and the mirage xl, then I found a mirage xxl, hope its what im looking for, just wanted somerhing that will have a good pull in fairly high winds and can do simple stunts etc.... Oh and delta :-D

Im still a little gutted about the matador as I really do like the look snd style of it, but oh well, mirage xxl it is!
