I still have my beloved old HOT PINK Tracer...but sadly that HOT PINK..within a couple of week end flying sessions...IS NO LONGER HOT PINK...but has faded to a very very pretty-lady PANTY PINK
That is the first kite that was soooooooo EZ to tuck into a turtle.....and perhaps due to the cross bridle...it was just sit there upside down in the sky, hovering as long as the wind was brisk enough..
and talk about LAZY SUSANS??? LAZY BIG ON YER BACK BUTHA'S might be a better name. (however adding a carefully attached trailing edge "TRICKITY-TREAT" line
really helped recovery out of the TURD=les and spine tingling'-tangles.
Still....FEW KITES over the years can track straight lines and turn as tight wing tip crisp corners as a TRACER.
That kite won many many many precision events during those early 90's.
I take that kite out of the bag...from time to time...JUST TO RELIVE THE MEMORIES.
Peter B' master of our wind...then took that Tracer and its cross bridle up onto a whole new level, with his beautiful BADBOY-VANTAGE POINT series which also still today TRACKS straight and true...just like that TRACER that perhaps was also one of our fore-daddy-muttas of fancy active-dynamicalllllyyyy bridles of today? Hummm?
