This isn't a full review, more observations.
It was a freezingly cold 61°F (16°C) afternoon. Winds from 3 to 15 mph and bumpy.
Stream of consciousness review follows:
The kite is very well made (you'd have to get nitpicky to mention anything).
The Enigma can be anything you want, from radical trickster to fairly precise ballet.
With the ShapeShifter™ standoff to the outward position, the kite is in precision mode.
It is silent to 8mph, then a noise switch kicks in (very cool). At about 12 mph the
the wingtips started to shudder.
With the ShapeShifter standoff to the inside, the sail can be heard to inflate and deflate.
The kite doesn't really make much other noise up to about 12 mph (the wind was dying)
by this time.
You super trickster chaps will love the 5 brass weights on the spine. The kite felt a bit
drunken and would forward or backward yoyo pretty easily, sometimes surprisingly so.
I also flew the kite with no weights. It would still yoyo, but not in the forward direction.
I'm guessing 2 or 3 weights is the sweet area.
I preferred the standoffs swung to the outward position, but the kite was still fun to
fly when standoffs were in.
Depending on your mood, just tune the kite for what you want to do.
As Mark Reed wrote about the I2K, "It's the only kite you'll ever need."
Seriously, the Enigma does what was intended. It's a great all-around all purpose kite.
5 weights is too much for me, but you Weeble-Lovers will be in paradise.
I'd tell you more, but it is so versatile, more time will be needed.
The kite doesn't break new ground as much as it borrows the best attributes
from several kite concepts and blends them together in one beautiful package.
PS. Sometimes, it almost reminded me of a Mojo with an attitude, almost.
