I need help to identify this kite, I picked it up from Eric in Madison, WI. He was unsure of the name.

It has no labels or markings, it has rings on the bridle for attaching the lines which makes me belive it is an older design. The package came with a "This kite belongs to" sticker from Into The Wind  which may or may not indicate the retail source. I have exhausted all my resources (unfortunately my "old-old" Into The Wind catalogs vanished mysteriously) and haven't found anything.

Any ideas, who, what, where, when?


Thanks in advanced



Also anyone that has pre 2000 catalogs I would love to have copies, or would be glad to scan and return them

It looks like it could be an Edge by Go Fly A Kite.  I have a Mini-Edge that looks a good bit like it without the lower edge row of rainbow color.  It does have a bit of Spectra Sport look to it also.
