Bottom line for me is that Mark and his company are amazing. I'm glad he's part of the kite world.
Interesting side note on the Elixir and Gem. I had a Gem bridal on my SUL Elixi and it really helped to make the backspin easier. Unfortunately, my kite bag and SUL Elixir were stolen.
Damn thats a shame. Do you remember the specs on that SUL elixir? I'd like to reframe one of my elixirs into an sul just to see how it flies.
JW, when the heat is over, come take a vacation in Las Vegas. Bring a +1 too.
I know where there is an Elixir that you could hopefully teach to fly and trick better.
THats one of the nicest looking Lix's I've sen yet.
