Anyone happen to have any old kite catalogs that have the original price for the spoilerz?

Thanks Steve.  I found a few NOS sets helping a friend go through the kite dungeon at his shop and he couldn't find his price list from back then.  I'm like a kid in a candy store wondering what I'll find next hidden in the boxes of stuff Tongue

The one thing I notice about Prisms older kites is that they are REEAALLLYY efficient wings.  I was flying my IL2K std in 2mph last weekend on 125 foot lines with no real issues, 97 Illy..2.5-3 mph no problem, Eclipse 2 mph is easy.  The later mass produced kites, while still great kites, just aren't as efficient.  The problem with kites that efficient(stable) is they demand damn near perfect line and input control as well as input timing vs position.  I hated my first IL2K so much I sold it.  Now with my new one, and knowing much more about flying, I can see that the dogginess is a lot more me than the kite.  Ive gotten many tricks out of it that people said can't be done on the original revers turbo bridle, but if I'm off just slightly on anything, its tip wrap city.
