the Mirage XL that Sam posted was in reality a standard Mirage, not the XL.  Never had any problems with it at all.

Thanks for the clarification.... thought it was just a prior year with different color scheme.

I read on a few reviews that the XL has had issues with things coming apart and having to be re-adjusted after or in flight??

If you can make appreciable adjustments to your kite in flight Huh, I am awed and a little scared .  I generally assumed that required the use of (exceptionally well-)trained falcons.  Wink

Very funny!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

What I meant to partly say was without the "in" on the adjusting part and falling apart on the "in" part. Wink

Here is part of a quote from a review I'm sure some of you have seen in the past somewhere.....

"The sail is made of several panels, the sewing is accurate and of a very good quality. However the standoff fittings needed to be fixed with some glue after losing two of them while flying. The bridle is made of a quite thick material which stretched during this summer making a resetting of the bridle necessary. I attached a pair of 35m, 130 kg Cyclone Extreme, which I think of being enough for only powerkiting".

It sounds like the kite may need some tweeking and will be somewhat cumbersome with the assembling and disassembling process. None the less I have it in my crosshairs.

Thanks for the detailed information on everything too!! Smiley
