Looks like a Quantum (Pro) with winglets to me. :-k

To me it looks just like an E2 with new panels.

The other posting is to long and the E3 is here.

To me, on the forum that features the new E3, the most talked about feature of the E3 is the new panel design and colors. Second is the modification that can be made to have the kite fly better. Trying to find out what BETTER means is very hard.

You may not like the kite but you cannot fault the introduction champagne used on the kite. Most, if not all, was word of mouth. Get the WORD out to the devoted and let nature have it’s way :D .

Absolutely brilliant!!!!

From my point of view, as someone who hasn't gone out of his way to find out about this kite, I'd say it's the least hyped Prism kite in ages.

I believe I witnessed someone beating the crap out of one in Portsmouth this weekend. I thought it best to leave them alone.

E1 still rocks... but i'm biased. E2 and 3 are hideous.

It's easy.
You just hook the ...er.....thingys round.....no,that's not right.
Hold the winder in your........no....hang on a minute.
I'm sure you catch the loops on the sticky-out thing and then.....er......nail yer kite to the ground...no,scratch that..............

You've got it back to front.

Stake out the lines, hold winder by central hole with single digit, attach lines to outer pegs.

That way when you pull the lines tight you can see the winder angles to one side or another. The proper equalisers (ie; Moran) have the line attachments closer together but the winder is a multipurpose tool so compromises have to be made.

Do you really need a winder to tell if your lines are the same length ? :-k
