  1. Im surprised he was polite enough to offer vasaline! If it were peterlynn kite id demand it shoved up someone elses arse dry. Fyi I have put a depower speed system on my 10m cerberus and it works great as a depower kite too.
  2. If you like fixed bridle race kites but not the peterlynn price tag. I would highly recommend these. http://www.panshkite.com/index.php?gOo=goods_details.dwt&goodsid=447&productname=
  3. As above. Big ears could still work.....ozone have somehow designed in tip tucking into their kites quite well. B line stall might not even be possible with closed cell.
  4. ^ plus a open cell wing tip twist can be shaken out. Closed cell can hold presure and make a large tip not fit through the line twist and not come out so easily.
  5. For Sale

    How has this not sold! People dont know their kites obviously. Beyond a bargain.
  6. As a 1 kite i did go for a 11m Fone diablo. I now have 3. Superb kites. Out of the v1s imho the best of the bunch. Infact im able to beat people on v2 sonics and r1s. And 2 of mine are second hand. Fone made sizes 1m either side so 12m would be spot on too. 10m not so for the lower end though. I believe joel has one for sale at a very good price too. Ozones have a tendancy to tiptuck...less so the newer you go but they all do it. Sonics are great kites, bar feel felt vague in light winds for me. Pl aeros are good kites woth no nasty habits and are proving to be very fast.
  7. So......whos selling up to get the "yet another new kite" from ozone?
  8. It was already doing this before production kites were out. They just blowing their own trumpet louder now. Oh and the 3rd race tangle they had, they only mentioned 1st n 2nd place in that race.... 🙄
  9. Any pics?
  10. Wind was so crap even the 17m didnt perform. The leader was on a 16m vapor 2 followed by a 15m diablo. Its great to see new kites and constant development but performance difference is so so marginal now. I truely belive a good kite can make a faster kiter. But a great kiter can make almost any kite faster. When there is wind the pl team are always up front, but they are brilliant kiters....im sure they would be there no matter what kite they flew.
  11. 29th august is the start date of the euros at hoylake this year. Sadly it seems that last years nobarriers was the last due to lack of support from the kiting industry. Some came along. Just not enough to make it feasible to repeat. SWATK have a club race series that we would welcome anyone to join in with. Day membership available and our own little windzone. Swatk also go to pembrey in south wales to criuse on clsc's beach.
  12. Well if you ever come to the uk, SWATK are very welcoming. The biggest and most active traction kite club in the uk and only racing club in england.
  13. Is there not a buggy club where you are? Could you not arrange something at your local spot?
  14. Do it. If you even slightly competative, even just one on one....its addictive.
  15. Here is the full version. Enjoy. Ps. Yes that is a fone diablo beating a pl aero
