Trickier to get your hands on than a bar of soap, rarer than hen's teeth, more anticipated than The Second Coming*.....

A customer review of Chris Goff's SuperFly.

Mike,
*The Stone Roses' second album that is.

Began my long overdue journey of trying to understand the Superfly's characteristics and little quirks but one thing that I found interesting was that the amount of leech line tension affects the trick feel a lot. Could be that the trick line not only tensions the tail but also changes the curvature of the trailing edge

Just for fun I totally loosened the leech line, zero tension. Kite become slow as a truck, loud as a bee and it is extremely precise! One surprising aspect that I really enjoy.

More to come, especially on playing with the adjustable center tee.

Keep coming please.  I always wondering what adjustable center 'T' means, how it is achieved and, how it affects the kite's flying character.  A few close up photos will be very helpful.  D

Not too surprising.  Cool This is the case with most kites. I mostly prefer to fly most of my kites with a loose sail.

It doesn't.  Chris designed it with yoyo stoppers and that's the way Tim will be producing it.
