Christmas came early for me.


Bought a second Amazing (White, gray and green kite).  My favorite true (indoor capable) SUL in the same category as PDSUL, Interspace, Prowren

Been able to fly this kite when other have switch to gliders.  Lots of air time on my blue one so I wanted a backup.






Added A Jumping Jack flash SUL to my STD. Been on my with list for 5 years. Lightest SUL that will roll up with ease.     

Fills in nicely between the Amazing and Transformer SUL.

The Amazing is a true indoorkite that you can also fly outdoors (not the other way around)  Wink

The SUL is the best of the whole JJF-line. Have fun with both.

Nice find on an amazing..... You should compare the ones you have to see if they are different...
The first ones with all of that squared mylar were beautiful.....

I am still hoping to get a TirNaNog - I just liked the design and always liked their quality

Love that squared mylar on the original.

The nose is more pointed on the newer model.  Only flow it once but the newer version roll out of the fade much easier.   Grin

Querspreize Oben : Skyshark P300 1cm kürzer als original
Querspreize Unten: Skyshark PT7 (sehr hart, gut für Präzision, gut für alle schnellen Rotationsbewegungen um die Querspreize)

Thanks for the info. 
Got most of the rods, but need some pt3.

Wonder if the Godfather will let me reframe his JJF as well so we do a direct comparison of the UL vs STD  Roll Eyes

I would do the SE frame. Best balance in a STD jjf IMHO. No tailweight needed. Very nice flatspins. Taz's super!
