I talked with Jon T. regarding the Widow and they are still in discussion about it. I hope that things go as currently planned and they do bring it back. I have no idea as to why they stopped in the first place. Didn't make sense then, doesn't now. Anyways, hopefully it will come back, and if so it will have some new colors.
I loved the Premier Genki's, I purchased the ones at the show. Premier also has some awesome 10.5' double box delta's that were hiding behind other kites that I don't think John seen.
I liked the big square SLK's from Skydog, but the price is very high.
Talking with Prism.......they didn't have anything new at the show but later on in the year (maybe around fall??) they may have a couple new products coming. Nothing is in stone yet but that was kinda exciting. I did get a video of Mark Reed learning to speed-stack cups. LOL.
I also liked the Crackerjack from HQ. I got one for John C. to get some photo's of and for us all to demo, more info when the winds cooperate.
There were quite a bit of new items coming out from the show, the best thing was that most everyone I talked to was very UP about things and looking forward to doing more in the coming year - a great sign IMO as previous years gave a feeling of being much more reserved and concerned about doing anything at all. Lots of talk about new things to come which was a very pleasant change of attitude.
Oh, and congrats to Dodd and Skydog for winning Kite Of The Year.
Looks like the KTAI will be in Vegas again next year - awesome! So.....here's the real question. How many of you would want to come out for our Demo Days fun fly? It looks like it will be open to the public for all to come and hang with the manufacturers/designers, ask questions, see and fly all the new gear?
Lets hear it?
Just changed John to Jon for Mr. T. No biggie. Il Duce.
