Hello, to all wise and knowledgeable kiters.

Have anyone heard, owned or flown this kite before?

Is it a bad kite?

If it is, is there any mods ( rods or bridle) or need any radical changes to make it fly better.?

Any info will be greatly appriciated.

Performance wise, its a great trick kite. Very interesting adjustable line that runs across the inner standoffs that changes the sail profile and hence its low wind range, performance.

Construction/frame choice wise I'm pretty disappointed. I broke the 5mm lower spreaders at the center Tee simply by doing a hard pump in probably light-standard wind, twice.

I'm curious if this is meant to be a UL or STD kite. Even some other UL kites I had with 5mm center Tees don't suffer from the same issue.

According to the kitehouse page it has a windrange of 1-5 BFT, so i would lean more towards standard.
