Bought as gift for high school grandchild. He was pleased to get it but hasn’t, I believe, yet test driven it.
I’ve grown up flying Delta styles stunt kites. This is my first go with a foil style, and the first few flights (in Pennsylvania) were different and fun. I love the sound of speed that emanates from the kite when in flight! Also a terrific trainer for my son as the lack of rigid parts decrease fear of damage with crashes. Can’t wait to get this bad boy to the Outer Banks!
I really love how easy it is to unpack & fly with no assembly required. Although this kite offers a different flying style than I prefer, it is a great kite for the price. Only complaint really (other than the flying style mentioned above) is I would like to be able to adjust the length of the strings while in flight instead of just having a set length to unwind. My last kite had round handles so you could let out as much line as needed. Great kite but would like to exchange for a smaller, faster one that takes less room to do tricks.
This is a great kite in such a small/compact package.
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....
