Hi single lines fans !

I'm looking for feedback about this kite.

Is the fiberglass frame not too heavy ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

If it is truly a Dan Leigh, it is worth it's weight in ..... ah...... good stuff but maybe not gold, at least at $1700.00 an ounce.  Seriously if it is a Dan Leigh, it is a very good kite.  I am not too hip on the new color schemes.  I have a XFS Delta and it flies really really well.  I am looking for a Little Bear.

Good Luck,

The Trooper is Dan's high wind delta, rated at 6-24 mph. While I don't own one (yet), I have personally assembled and examined one. It appears to be well made with a good attention to detail. According to the ITW staff, Dan requires that they jump through a lot of hoops examining every production kite to ensure it's just right before it's shipped.

I don't remember what the spars were but, if they're FG, I'd think their flex would help it absorb the stresses of higher winds.

I actually liked the colors when I saw it in person.

Hope that helps.
