Sorry 'bout that. It's called theTiger II and it sounds terrifying, tugs pretty hard, and is super fast.

This might be just want the doctor ordered, fella. :cool:

Of course, Yan's offers seems pretty dope as well!

Feel free to educate me on the current offerings lads.


Full size Fury? Though it pulls hard in low winds, and uncontrollably hard in the winds it sounds like you enjoy flying in. It is adjustable to be noisy if you wish. I'm not sure there is much market for the kind of kite you're looking for - people who like pull come under the umbrella of power-kiters, of which there are scant here.

Flat Out,

I've got a Powerhouse Storm, haven't flown it for years, used to love it! I'll never fly it again. It may as well go to someone who will fly it, if your interested.

If i remember rightly, it needs a lot of wind to fly, pulls a bit and is noisy. I bought it about 17 years ago, it's still in good nick.

Lol at the powerkiters.

Ive unfortunately/fortunately become one of those and am now a buggier flying foils but ive not forgotten my grass roots and they were stunt kites.

Hence this thread of me trying to track down a blade. The Fury sounds quite good too. I'll have a look at those whilst im holding out for a Blade.

Cheers :)

Maybe even extending over to Holland/Belgium as Powerhouse produced the Moonshot for a Belgian team.


Uhhhmmm..... A Dutch team, The "Dust Devils".
Nop Velthuizen is also the co-designer of the moonshot.
You'll find plans for the moonshot in his book Stuntkites #3 ["the Manual" I believe is the subtitel].
The plans are for a UL, Std, mid-Vent and full-Vent.
You might consider a build, rather than a buy??

Yeah, I knew that. Why on earth did I write Belgian :-k ?!!? This flu medicine must be better than I thought :rockedover:

The plans are for a UL, Std, mid-Vent and full-Vent.

IIRC (and this is looking shaky at the moment) Powerhouse sold each in either Exel or SkyShark framed versions - so eight versions of one commercially pretty unsuccessful team kite.

Meanwhile back towards the subject.... alternatives to the Blade might be a second hand Flexifoil Erazor or a new Spirit of Air Javelin.

Re: POWERHOUSE KITES?? Anyone remember them? Please read.

Attention Flat Out!!!

I have got a Power House Blade tucked away safely in my attic. I know this was a very old post, but Flat Out still appears to be a member here on the forum.

It's not the black design (which was sweet) but a half and half red/yellow design (will get picture taken if requested). The sail is in pretty good condition, just some of the spars need replacing. If I remember correctly, the speed and power these kites produced resulted in some pretty hefty crashes. Me and may mate had one each and they were great fun for formation flying and pretending to be the synchro pair from the Red Arrows.

Well guys, would you believe it. After 12 years since I started my search I’ve finally found a Blade in great condition. Thanks to those who replied to this thread.

I’m now on the lookout for a red/yellow Adrenaline if anyone has one in good condition to sell?
Let’s hope it’s not another 12 years eh.

Afraid it’s gotta be red/yellow mate. Although if you wanna drop me a pm with pics & a price I might be tempted.

Thanks for responding anyway
