And - a picture now!



I'm sure the build quality is exceptional.  I can definitely see it's trick capabilities from the posted video.  I must admit though, for me, the panel layout just seems a bit mixed.  I just don't know.  Maybe a colorizer tool and some hot coffee and I can figure out some other pattern I would like.   Wink  I would have to sell a few custom ordered builds before I could afford a Lam special anyway.  Cry

Hi
Before few days I was flying my Sea Devil std.
My golden standards for the kite and my stile offcourse.
Jac. Ladder with it are so sweet and so balanced.
Not too deep turtle but I think that IS the magic of this kite, to do hower-look rotation on back during J.Ladder.
I can see a lot of kite flyer move to the newer kite which is normal, newer trick, step higher. ...
But, Sea Devil has pocket full of dreams...

I like the panel layout. Reminds me of a tribal scheme. I am thinking just like this, with flourescent Yellow center stripe would look good. Of course Red or purple would work also.

so may choices...

and a video - lots of cynique in here.  Perhaps this will be the kite I learn that trick on.

I almost find it hard to believe that you're having trouble with this trick... I've been watching your DOA video to try to learn the Taz. Not this week, but I feel a breakthrough soon !

Haha - thanks Rob!

I'm the type of flyer that rarely breaks anything, even though I fly the kite aggressively at times. 

So, this trick sort of intimidates me a bit.   I was getting it down, snapped a lower spreader and then haven't worked it much since. 

I've been looking for an opportunity to fly with someone who has it down and learn from their inputs, but haven't found someone yet.  Clearly, I should drive up to BC and fly with Lam!  Smiley

Now that my Taz is pretty solid, I will circle back to it.

Just to clarify, the Cynique is just a Lazy Susan cascade, right ? Or is it a reversing multi-lazy ?

Reverse directions with no discernible 'stop'.  I'd consider multis fine, but critically speaking, I'd bet it's just one rotation before each abrupt direction change.

What a cool trick.

At what point the rotation is switched ..  the nose pointing at me switching to opposite hand pulling?

Thanks Tom, I do appreciate your help. Anyway. The ATM has been tested for some time now when I was in VN for 3 months and now I am back. The kite fly friendly, fun, medium speed and very easy to do Synique and other trick and very good in precision. Kite will have 6 to 8 different colors, I will post the pictures when I have it. Price will be $289. Kite made out of Icarex PC 31. Kite will come with new LE connector, New knock for tip stand, New Sky Claws, and a nice bag just for the ATM. Competition Nose will be cover up like all my kite. Thanks for checking in.

Have a great day.
