I don't think its a copy.

Copy?  Maybe not.... frames are totally different, but the sail pattern is definitely familiar.

Pictures are K44 and HQ Maestro, respectively.

ATB,
Sam

Cheap is not allways the same as Copied.  Wink
Some of the "high-end" manufacturers, also make cheaper kites [for instance Eolo 'Over' and 'Next' and a lot of kiddy-stuff  Undecided] R&D included.
Most of the time, what you buy in a shop should not be a copy.

      Hello to all , Many thanks to all of the people in this thread. I have learned alot and had many questions answered. This is one of those situations that we as a group must try and come to terms with and support the " honest"  kite makers as best we can . I now understand the difference between an inexpencive kite and a copy cat kite that was made to try and decive a person out of his /her money.  I now understand the difference and can and see that the line can sometimes blurr between the two . The inexpencive kites are there to fill a need in the market as beginner kites and also to supply a person such as myself who can illafford anything else. Yes I have had many questions answered but more than that I feel much better with myself for buying the cheaper stuff. I don't feel so guilty. Don't get me wrong it still sucks to be poor and have to decide between a kite and new jeans or shoes or a haircut for that matter. No there I go feeling sorry for myself again. Sorry bout that.......Poor Old  R A G G M O P P ----Raggmopp  Tom

For those of you with a Facebook account, the counterfeit Wala XL has surfaced...   Huh

The link/photo has been removed. But here's another to explain why:

"This content is currently unavailable..."
I'm not surprised.  The content was pretty heated, and it seems people standing on the sidelines were getting hit with the some of the *** flying back and forwards.
The arguments centred around the person mentioned at the beginning of this very thread.  Sadly, it seems nothing has changed

Here's a pic of the fake Wala XL... Roll Eyes

http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/photo.php?pid=1578375&id=1315329525&ref=fbx_album

Must admit the applique is quite a nice touch BUT sail material feels different, and a fake is still a fake.

Saw a guy on the field flying a fake Wala, all the kite wanted to do was fly on its side, weird. And the bridle was unusually long as well!
