I just got a Skykiller from Antonis and I freekin love it. It has the same deep turtle as the Superfly but not quite so. I find with the fly if you get it locked in you have very few exit options. (Could be a user problem)

The Skykiller has become my new favorite, I've only had it a week though. Been flying with it three times and my joy with it is only growing. For me it behaves a little like the cosmic TC and a little like the Superfly but it holds a fade better than either of those and seems to fall into one effortlessly. It is incredibly well balanced and came with three tail weights for different wind conditions. I've had it up in 4 mph winds and in gusts to 20+. I am very, very impressed with it and recommend it highly. I find myself scheming for time to spend with it.

Im happy that someone here has reviewed Antonis' kites...as they look both visually amazing and youre not the only one to reccomend them. I was more looking at getting one of his UL Vitals at some stage when Im rich

The Transformer TL by Lam Hoac. The frame is SMALLER so its tricks quicker ... as compared to the Fearless or Transformer 2. Currently reviewing the Transformer 2's in SUL and UL with a 5PT lower spreader from Rudy (California).

I recently sold two Tranformer TL's to Tom Patterson(SUL) and a Std.Vent to a Pa. flyer from my inventory.

I keep thinking Crow-LW ... maybe we can do a deal Europe?

PAW isn't making kites for the moment. You'll have to source a Crow second hand.

I ended up going with a Seven Standard from Sport Kite Design (SKD) and couldn't be happier.

ahh ok..again the same bal bla bla...The trickiest kite.All depends from a pilot.Experience, physical abilities, etc..Some newbies cannot justice right the SF, Enzo,Hugo etc.Also some guys are preffered to fly big ballet kites(non trickable), but the small trick kite( SF etc) just loooks weird in their hands.As a result less tricks, unhappy kite owner.Nothing to do.Need to choose a right one.All is very individually.. :cool:

peace. :P
