Okay what about the silver fox pro whats everybodys take on this kite? avability,parts,how its made and above all how it flys?
Thanks for all inputs
Edit: Sorry, just caught the word "Pro" in that sentence. Missed it before.
I assume you'd go for the UL version. The general consensus is that SF ULs are more light-standards than UL, and have a range similar to the Zephyr. That means you may have some difficulty flying in 2-4 mph. I don't know whether that still holds for the Pro. I've gotten it flying (but not tricking, yet) in low winds, but I don't know what I'd estimate them as. Definitely under 4 mph. It takes some leg work.
Keep in mind, both the Pro Std and UL are both 2.3, which tricks a little faster than the 2.5.
The Pro UL is known to have issues with doing yoyos, but the designer posted a video here doing them easily without the upper spreader. I'm nowhere near doing yoyos, so I can't verify.
I've not been exposed to nearly as many kites as most here (my sig lists about all I have experience with), but I think the Silver Foxes have a reputation as being good for learning. The price is lower than most, but if you'll eventually be upgrading, it's probably better to just buy the more expensive kite now. That said, the SF line will do all the tricks, with the noted caveat above.
If this doesn't read as a glowing endorsement...well, I'm pretty inexperienced. I live inland, and have a baby, so I don't get the flying time I wish I could. Both of my tricky kites are new (to me) this summer, so I have very few hours logged with them. Upon release, the SF Pro UL was getting some negative comments. I'm fairly well pleased with it, but any tricky kite was a step up from the Quantum. So weigh my comments against my perspective.
