So I thought I might just see if there was any more out there on this kite, you know the stuff, pics history, opinions, tips and videos etc.
I think that it's generally accepted that this kite was~is better as an idea than a reality. The review in Kite Passion
ended with the hopeful thought that it "will probably end up as a classic with one in every discerning kite flyer’s bag
" but plenty of these kites are very low mileage even today, 12 years or so on. I can recall plenty of people who bought them new and didn't~haven't taken them out of the wardrobe since that first summer.
Whatever new flight and trick wise it brought to the party back then was very quickly available elsewhere on more conventional and well-rounded offerings. Its sheer quirkiness quickly became a liability, rather than a selling point. If you did manage to break one then repairing it could be a chore.
I have some videos stored away at home that I could look for if no-one else comes forward before I get back there.
I honestly don't care for it but am impressed that something so other
can be made to work at all, much like the Utopia
