Ken was nice enough to send me a demo Mongoose to try out.  Anyone want to get together this weekend and give it a spin?  Mike?  Denny?  John?

With any luck I'll get some photos and video  and will post my rave, erm ... review of the kite.

Love to test a Mongoose, no wind right now out here but I see the Cam shows 3 mph there. I have a brake job to get after but if you head out and there's a breeze give us a call.

"let's see ... get greasy, hot and frustrated or fly a Blue Moon kite ... "
Sort of a no brainer choice there, "Rhonda we need to go to town, I forgot to pick-up the BrakeClean"  (I did anyway)

Believe me, you all are going to be impressed by the Mongoose.  I flew mine, without weight, for 30 minutes last night in very light winds  -- the kind perfect for a Mamba UL -- and it was impressive.  The kite I received was the Nitro version because the "average wind speed" in this area of Texas is 5-15 mph, which hasn't happened for months.
