We had lots of fun flying the 170 in mild wind conditions. This was the first stunt kite that my 9 year old flew and he loved it!!
This 170 is amazing, if you want an experience that will thrill you till no end, this is the kite to get. I've recommended this to my brother which plans to get one himself. Fun time ahead to fly your heart out....
Very nice quality kite. Shipping was very fast. Very happy !
I'm a kiteboarder, and have owned a lot of kites. The quality of this kite is excellent.
I used to live in Eastern NC, and now live in Oregon. I was concerned the kite would not get here in time for our beach vacation, but KH Kites made sure the kite got here FAST.
7/5 stars !
Thank you !
This kite is amazing. Bought it this afternoon and took it to the beach to try it out. I didn't want to quit. Has a little pull, but it's a lot of fun! Can't wait to find a place that I can fly it at home to get out and learn more about it!!!
Sorry it took a while to get this review done. Last April I was in Arizona for a vacation and forgot to bring my kite. I wanted to order a second kite, but because the post office couldn’t guarantee if I used overnight or second day air that I would get my kite in time before returning to North Carolina . Additionally, Kitty Hawk kites usually takes something like three to five days before shipping which together with the post office looked like I wouldn’t get it in time.
I spoke with customer service on the live chat and have to say they were extremely helpful. They shipped my kite by the next business day which ensured my kite arrived in Arizona in time.
All the above aside, I love BOTH of my Synapse 170 dual line kites. Having two kites means another person can fly my second kite for some dogfights and or formation flying. I only wish I knew about these kites a long time ago.
I highly recommend using Kitty Hawk kites when purchasing a kite of any kind and can’t say enough about how much fun it is to fly my Synapse 170 dual line kite!
