I found a page in an old kiteshop catalogue. It displays the powerhouse kites available in 1994.
Sorry for the Englischspeaking, but it is in Dutch.
Prices Pre-Euro divide them by 2.2 and add some inflation. :lol: :cool:

I don't know if you know, but there is a facebook group called Stunt kites classics.  You never know, someone on there might have one.

I have a Powerhouse Blade that I've had since new. It's not flown for about 20 years. Would be happy to sell for a reasonable price:

The kite is in pretty good condition, especially the sail. The rubber joints have started to let the carbon rods poker through, so would need spares / repairs for those:

Hey, I have an adrenaline... it’s a orange / lime green affair. haven’t flown it for years as had a broken spar.. it’s been through the wars but was my first power kite and I always loved it’s  “sledge hammer to break a nut” design ethic . I’m afraid it’s not for sale but I’m getting a new spar and hoping to give the old dog some airtime this Easter! It dragged my ( then girlfriend) wife across a ploughed field on the day we bought it., ...I remember it well ...we got it from a kite shop in Camden, we both chucked a sickie and drove to the coast on a windy day to give it a go... so much fun , that must be nearly 20 odd years ago - at least! Been round the world that thing! :-)  love it to bits ... it has “ history”. Brash and noisy with so much pull given its size ...will post photo in due course.

Wonderful you still have it and sounds like you love it for all the reasons I loved my one too. Mine too was certainly a kite well loved and not a shelf queen.
Looking forward to you posting some photos of it soon.

I’m still hunting for that elusive “mint” condition Powerhouse Adrenaline. :)
