I bought this kite for my 65th birthday and have been having fun with it when I get some wind. I am getting better with it but certainly have unplanned landings. That is why I got a soft kite with nothing to break. This kite will give a good pull with a moderate wind. I have tried it with a 24 ft tail and it looks nice but responds much slower then to turns. It takes my mind off of everything else.
Flys great with decent amount of wind. Beautiful. Has a tail loop. I have no doubt it's going to hold up well. I've flown it in 20+ mph winds. And have had some rough landings. Not a mark on it.
I haven't had a chance to fly this kite due to low winds, thunderstorms and other distractions. This is my first stunt kite so it won't be long for it's inaugural flight. ..standby.
The kite is a truly fun activity to do open air with the children!! Make sure you don’t buy this kite for children below 12. The strifes are extremely long and do not come with something allowing you to a just the length. Therefore we have spent a good amount of time untangling the stings after or before each use.
I wish it were mentioned on the description or at least offer an option of an extra to buy to facilitate the usage at first.
