Just talked to Jon and the first 100 in red should be arriving by the end of april or early may. You can order here http://www.kitesandfunthings.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=66322
If you want yellow then you will have to wait a couple more months.
Like the new graphics, but understand that the original graphics were meant to evoke the jointed nature of arachnid limbs.
Much simpler to sew the new graphics, the originals graphics and felled seams were very labor intensive. The broad seaming should help keep the price down. Looks like it got much better rub patch at the upper spreader too, the originals was a real weak point on an otherwise pretty nicely built kite.
Yes the rub patch is a lot better too. If you want to try it out Mike I have the first Red one (pictured in Johns photos) made in my bag now and you can either join us at our fun fly this month or I can send it up your way. Chadster where are you located?
