Born Kites Long Star 2 and Control Bar

Recommended Posts

After helping John H with a trial of the Born Kites Long Star 2 at Kingston SA, I immediately purchased a 3.5 and 7.5m LongStar 2 with their Totem Control bar and lines. Watch the video of that trial and read the report on this website 

These kites are stable, easy to launch and control, provide good all round performance and are excellent value. I made comments about the bar in a previous post after John’s trial report and have nothing but praise for it. Sadly due to personal circumstances I’m stopping buggying and so these great almost new kites are for sale. I would prefer to sell both of the kites and bar as a package. I’m asking $700ono for the lot and can post at buyers expense!

Sad to see you selling your gear, Trev.  But great kites and a bargain for someone.  One thing I absolutely loved about my 3.5m  is not only is it grunty for it's size in lighter wind - I think we could actually buggy in 12 knots and up - but even in 25 knots, let the bar out and very little pull at all.  Easily betters the Peak 2 4m and Access XT 4m.

Thanks John. I’ll PM soon to explain! There’s a bit more kit to go on here yet so watch this space!

Sorry to hear this Trevor. 

To all reading, Trevor looks after his kiting gear so you can be sure that Trevor's distribution of the kiting gear will be precise. Just sad that we will not buggy together again. All the best from us both
