I was wondering how many of these popular kites had been around.

So would you please state:

How many Nirvanas you have owned.

How many Nirvanas you still own.

To be fair, I'll start it off.

None and none. (Sorry, always liked the Opium a bit more)

Bonus points if you have ever owned the brown version or a custom.  Smiley

Not mine. Although I admire the break in conformity it offers.  Smiley

I've got a long history with this kite - it's like a guy who keeps re-marrying his ex wife!  Smiley

I've had 3 (past tense), here they are.  I really miss having sold the second one - quite a looker!

First one:


Second one:


Third one:


I still have this one, although it is an NFX:

Love it!  It's one of the few non-Lam kites that I've kept.

It's among my favorite r-sky, along with the KFX which may be my favorite.
