  1. Fulcrum Down Under

    You mean one of these? Or a "Flic" from France (these work surprisingly VERY well!)
  2. Fulcrum Down Under

    Wow, it's been 6 months and I FINALLY got a decent fly on the Fulcrum yesterday. What a beautiful kite! You definitely need to fly it as a Fulcrum, not a Rev alternative. The main difference being how you use the handles. Holding the handles in the centre, not near the top, opens up the performance of the kite. Once I discovered this, I realised why. Rev movement is concentrated around the movement of the leading edge. The Fulcrum movement is around the horizontal centre line of the kite. Duh! (Slaps hand on forehead). I flew for over an hour, loving every minute. Graceful, easy to control, easy to impress the onlookers. Saving up for a vented version now!
  3. Big kites for sale

    The black bag looks like it contains a Maestrale from HQ kites. These were produced in the late 1990s http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y143/uktotty/kites/DSC02237.jpg They are large by modern standards, designed for precision, (not tricks) best in light winds. They don't come up for sale very often these days, and even then don't usually fetch particularly high price - say, $150 -ish. The MEFM is a sought after kite. If @ieighty hadn't put his hand up for it, I would have jumped on it. As for the pink bag, what does the label say?
  4. Hi there!  Is the custom ZEN still for sale?  I saw some of the others sold but didn't see a status on the ZEN.  Cheers!

    Well done Theresa!
  6. @nigel did a great job all weekend... in more ways than one!

    I would caution getting too excited. There's always a lot of hype surrounding John's upcoming creations, especially as John can make them look fantastic in his teaser vids. (He is a VERY accomplished flyer, remember). It looks to be another Rev variant, albeit with tweaks. But the proof is always in the pudding, and his Kymera turned out to be, shall we say, ... an acquired taste ...not the sort of pudding that many people liked.

    I totally agree about the "Storm vent". In fact I sold my Rev Xtra vent because I think the Storm is a much better kite.

    "Freilein" - Chinese manufactured. They are very well made, and a very realistic price range. A few of the South Aussie flyers have bought them from ebay and aliexpress. Very happy with them.
  10. Kite and buggy storage

    Looks pretty organised to me ;-)

    Once again, Linda and I will be at Emu Park "Festival Of the Wind" on the weekend of April 7/8th. Come on over if you want a bit of time on the sport kites :-)

  13. Couple of new builds 2018

    Hey Chook, I've got them in stock if you're interested. I currently use them on my quads; very happy with them.
  14. Gotta start the new year with a new kite! Just a shame the wind was too strong to give it a real fly
