Hey guys,
Vert and I are flying pairs now and we were wondering about some loud kites. What, in everyones opinion, is the loudest kite out there, or one of them? Any info would be awesome. I have a few (all old school) in mind, but could afford to explained the list a bit!

Thanks,
Devin/Vert

you could easily make any kite louder by adding a buzzer strip if that is what you are looking for.....

grab a cassette tape and unspool a bunch of feet of it.....then tie one end on....and pull the tape across an open area and while trying to keep it flat (no twists) attach the second end....you can make a heck of a lot of noise that way......

I love the roar of NSR's, especially when you get 2 or 3 going in a good wind!

Sweet! The NSR is certainly on my list. Anyone have experience with the BLK?

+1 for the North Shore. We fly them (Kona, Radical or VIP, depending on the wind) with the team, and 4-5 of them roaring together definitely makes people look up and watch!

I have NSR's and a few Wasps.  Both are very loud but I would have to say the NSR would be the better choice for team flying and noise.  The Wasp puts out some noise but it gets a little fast and can be twitchy in the stronger winds.  The NSR is rock solid, smooth and steady with tons of noise.

If you do get NSR's, re-frame them with Rev 4 wrap rods and you will be amazed.

Whats that?

The NSR would be cool, but its just a matter of getting ahold of 2 that are the same age, condition, matching colors, etc. kinda a longshot?

Also, what about Griffins?

Sorry about all the questions everyone, when I was around 4 ish years old people were flying these and I was mostly flying HQ and Skyburner so I dont have much knowledge on the subject.

My Chicago Fire Bee's & Flames are pretty loud.  Of course the NSR like everyone has mentioned already.

...the LD Tiger II gets pretty noisy but you need lots of wind!  Doubt you could fly pairs with speed kites though. Wink

So you want two that match exactly or are just the same kite?

I was thinking of redoing mine with Skyshark Black Diamond standard rods.
