Back To The Old School: Prism Fanatic |IckyTV

Sun Jun 30, 2019 2:05 pm

Last week i picked up a brand new Prism Fanatic kite at Ron Berkhout's place. I really love the colors on this one. Very 90's Prism in my opinion. Such a cool little kite. Basically a smaller, radical Illusion. Looking at the Prism badges and branding my guess is this kite is from one of the last production runs of the Fanatic (early 2000's). This episode of BTTOS was filmed during my first session with this kite at De Zandmotor. Enjoy!

I'm no Prism fan, but this is great stuff ... you should rename it cheesily - "The Fantastic Fanatic"

Now, where are all the tip wrap outtakes ?

Haha, thanks.
Actually, i've had some trouble with the lines getting caught behind the fold-over stand-off connectors. Mostly because i didn't use leaders and i flew it on some very thin lines.

Far less wingwraps compared to my Illusion though.
