One of my biggest regrets was letting them go. I fell for the stupid belief that new is better and new is more powerful. Boy was I wrong.
I've been picking up pre 1990 power kites also.

Contact Macboy,

I know he is thinning his quiver. He has my old 3m Brooza ( II? ) and 1 or 2 more.

Brooza was slightly unique. I liked the few small air inlets. Launching took a bit different style but they stayed nice and firm once filled. I loved the graphics.

It was a real lifty little kite. That was why I traded it on.




Kites: 2.5m Profoil , 4.9m QuadrifoilXL kitesurfer, 9m Flexi Blade II, NPW 5 Danger.
Flysurfer : 19m Speed 2 SA, 7m Pulse
Peter Lynn :18m Phantom, 15m Synergy, 10m Synergy, 1200 Farc, 460 Sarc, 130 Tarc, 5m Peel, 4.2m , 6.4, 8.5 C-Quads

Rides: Flexi / P.L. Frankin'Buggy , Shaped + straight skiis, sand skis, Coyote blades. Core 95 ATB. RKB R2 ATB .

Thanks - But those are 2 line with spar in the leading edge? Not exactly what I had in mind but same designer right? I messaged him previously to see if he had access to Skytigers any more but he said not. He didn't suggest an alternative unfortunately.

Yes they are, I picked up a bunch of them last fall and have been playing with them all winter. Once launched and flying they pull quite nicely, particularly in stacks.
I had a couple of them up one night at IBX but did not have enough wind for traction which was the goal.

I had to post so I could see my signature - the kites have been buried so long I can hardly remember what's hiding away here....I know the PKDs are still around here and I do think it's time to come to terms with my wishes vs my realities.....

Not looking good for the 3mtr Buster
It had a run in with a black labrador retriever :(
I had the owner who managed to get tangled in the lines and there dog running around with my kite in its jaws.

I now have 2 teeth holes on 2 panels at the leading edge and a 6" x 4" hole through 2 panels where a paw went straight through.

The owner was very apologetic and has offered to pay for getting it repaired but I'm not sure it would be worth it for a kite this age or if it will fly the same after repair but I am loathed to loose this kite as it my go to kite that I know I can fly in pretty much any wind.

How have you all found that repaired kites fly?

Unk, it doesn't change the kite to much. I have flown many that were resurrected from the dead.
If the destroyer is willing to pay for the repair, do it. It's better than nothing. I have a 2m buster that was repaired twice, still a favorite.
