PKD Century II 8.0m For Sale

rofer - 11-18-2015 at 05:29 PM

Last kite up for sale. Split shipping CONUS.

PKD Century II 8.0m (RTF) from WELDNGOD $225
Beautiful lightwind kite that could be great given clean winds, but which does not handle terribly well in Pittsburgh. Slow turning, but with a lot of grunt the few times I had it up in the air. Definitely better for people who have some more space than I do.

Pictures available on request.

Dropped some prices and decided to sell the Screamer RTF (no pump though). I'm lazy about laying them out and taking pictures, but if anyone's interested I can get whatever pictures you want.

I think this viper is the viper s version if I remember correctly. Awesome kite. It actually worked decent in my inland wind conditions. I only sold it and my 2.6 viper s to help fund my current quiver, however, as far as fixed bridle kites I have flown, this kite was my all time favorite for all around use and I found it to be the most dynamic in terms of power delivery once you master it's unique flight characteristics. I true pilot's kite that's well behaved enough to be useful in challenging conditions.

rofer - 12-2-2015 at 08:17 PM

Fixed to specify it's the s version.

With all the great things I've heard about it I'm sad to let it go, but I really don't have the conditions to fly fixed-bridles and I can't keep kidding myself. I hope whoever buys it gets to actually put it to some use.

I added a link to pictures of the 10m Epic Screamer now that I have someone interested in it. I'd love it if someone could help me figure out which version this is.

I'm lazy about taking pictures, but if anyone's seriously interested in the Viper or the Century II I can get some pictures of them too.

What color is the viper?

rofer - 12-9-2015 at 06:56 PM

Here's the product page for a new one: http://www.powerkiteshop.com/peter-lynn-viper-kite.htm

It shows the 5.3 is grey with green and yellow. A quick look inside the bag confirms this. I'd rather not ssayre's beautiful folding, but if there's real interest for pictures I can spread it out and take some.

woodneers - 12-9-2015 at 09:19 PM

When I click the link I see this as 5.3. Maybe I'm missing sumthin here.

It's definitely a 5.3. I don't know if they had various colors in same sizes or not. I think they made same sizes of different colors, because I have seen the red color scheme in 5.3 on the internet as well. This is going beyond the call of duty :) but here is the pictures I took when I listed it on here.

and here is what it looks like if you want it to be your Christmas cards

ssayre - 12-10-2015 at 01:55 AM

also I sold it to Rofer with original handles, lines, and bag.

rofer - 12-11-2015 at 05:32 AM

Sale no longer pending on the Epic Screamer. Make it yours today!

That is the color scheme for the 6.7m Viper S. The 5.3m is deffo the grey green he is showing above, the older model of 5.3m Viper is mostly a kelly green with a white and grey strip (same color scheme as the more current 2.6m Viper S).

Viper and Viper S are both killer kites. I have a 2.6m which I will never sell, its an awesome highland machine with awesome upwind capability. SUUUUPER stable for sure. I used to own a 6.7m which was awesome as well. Many PL fans wonder why on earth they discontinued this line.

woodneers, you won't regret buying this kite for sure.

rofer - 12-11-2015 at 04:39 PM

Marked the Viper S as sold and decided to offer free shipping CONUS.

woodneers - 12-17-2015 at 08:45 PM

Received the viper today. Thanks rofer! Love the patented sock wrap idea.

rofer - 12-26-2015 at 07:50 AM

Holiday price drop!

Didn't get any kites this Christmas? Buy mine!

rofer - 2-4-2016 at 06:05 PM

Price dropped again.

I already bought two kites since I started this sale and I'm looking at another. Please help, I'm running out of space!

Just did the same thing! :o I held off on buying a Ozone Frenzy for as long as I could and finally broke down yesterday and ordered it from Hardwater. My three Born-Kite LongStars are still for sale!

Sorry I'm posting on your thread but not buying, but I just couldn't pass on the solidarity moment! :frog:

Maybe you should bring them to WBB? :bigok:
We have fixed-bridle conditions :yes:

rofer - 2-4-2016 at 06:27 PM

I've got a car now and I'm not too far away so WBB is actually on my radar. Can't justify a whole set of kites for one event though.

Windstruck: You can trade your quiver for one of my kites :p

rofer - 2-4-2016 at 06:30 PM

Hey, can anyone see my post? Right now it looks totally empty, but every time I edit it it stays that way.

hiaguy - 2-4-2016 at 08:03 PM

We can see your post... it says you're looking forward to WBB :lol:

rofer - 2-5-2016 at 04:17 AM

Heh, I mean the top post. It just looks empty to me right now.

Windstruck - 2-5-2016 at 06:14 AM

Top post empty (likely the one with the actual advertisement). You stand about as much chance selling you stuff at this point as you do trading with me. :P

rofer - 2-5-2016 at 03:11 PM

PM me if you want a PKD Century II 8m or EPIC Screamer 10m. Apparently I can't post any more than this :(

rofer - 2-15-2016 at 02:28 PM

pkf helped solve my problem so the top post is back!

Now with reduced prices.

rofer - 4-4-2016 at 06:46 PM

The Epic Screamer has sold. Just the PKD Century II left.
