I picked up some used kites and am looking for the original specs on them.  They are all New Tech kites and include a Seduction, a Techno, a New Jam and one I cannot identify.  It looks similar to the Techno but has YoYo stoppers and a weighted spine.  I have tried looking on the New Tech site but with no luck. Any help would be appreciated before I have to start pulling them all apart and measuring each piece.

Don't pull anything apart yet. 
Could the kite you don't have the name for be a Big Bang?
Check you email as I am sending you the info.

he he he he he he....older new tech kite...the big bang....he he he he he he he

just find that funny!!!!

new tech has been around since the early 90's/late 80's......i imagine there were some neat kites they made back then too.....

glad you got squared away....for most of the kite manufacturers out there their website have product support areas that have the frame info et al for your usage.....
oop....see that there is nothing on new techs web pages about the specs.......

Here is the instructions and dimensions for the Techno:

Here is a discussion (contains specs) about the New Jam:

http://www.newtechkites.com/NTKBB/viewtopic.php?t=249&highlight=jam

Seduction specs:

Spine = p200 skyshark @ 77.5 cm
Leading Edge x2 = p200 skyshark @ 68.5 cm
Bottom Spreaders x 2 = p200 skyshark @ 75 cm



This is the link to NTK's instructions (many with specs), for many of thier kites:

Also, the old NTK Forum has a lot of information within it's discussion threads, related to NTK products. Even though the forum has been closed to new discussion a couple years ago, NTK continues to keep the forum up for anyone wanting to research information about thier products. here's the link:
