I got orange - and its fine - but I think the gray, and this sky blue look much better.

I toyed with the idea myself of asking Tim for one in discontinued color, perhaps he has something
tasty leftover from the old days ?

I really like that sky blue but I've never bought a blue kite as I prefer some contrast against the sky.

Flo green is fave................

Grey was my original colour choice, but in the end I thought it was just a bit too much. In particular the proximity of the dark grey main panel and the dark grey trailing edge were just too close to do it for me.

My view is that the lighter colours in the main panel work best. I'm so glad that Tim managed to find enough Sky Blue for this one. I had grey and royal blue as the backup options, although I was starting to warm to flo green as another option.

Royal Blue w/a matching Superfly on order.

I'd love to get them in Sky Blue...

Good colour choice, Keith. Prefer that to the dark grey version.
