I decide to fly the XTR for the first time since 2006. The wind is somewhat brisk but very smooth, and nowhere near vented territory yet - in fact, I've always enjoyed
flying the Transfer in conditions like these. Anyway, I launch the kite, and one second later - bang. Spreader snaps at the T.
I've broken 5pt's on the XTR before, but this was just strange. I even checked the spars when putting the kite together, and everything looked good. I was never a believer in "storage death" for kites, but this has me wondering...
Not even sure I have any spares anymore. Is the 5pt still being manufactured?
