Welcome,

Your intro is just a bit confusing. Blades are made by Flexifoil. What other Flexifoil kites ( and sizes ) do you have?

What do you intend to do with this kite? 4m Blades are really more of a fast kite than a jumping kite. Too small to float once you are lifted. Actually a dangerous kite to jump with. I personally would not use it for that and I like to jump.

How big are you? What is the wind speeds you are looking to use this kite in?

Probably the best time to ask questions about a specific kite is BEFORE you buy it.




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 .

my current quiver is all FLexifoils... !.7m Control, 1.8m Rage, 2.05m Big Buzz, 2.5m Rage, 4.0m Blade. Im at 170# 6'. Primarily do static flying, maybe more as skill develops. I have been sticking to the smaller kites to keep my ego in check. Scudding and just playing with the wind. most of the wind here is what Ill call the lower range <20mph. I just like flying as its better than the Rx the VA wants me to take and its a great workout.

Ive been looking for anyone that has a new blade to see how they are preforming as the weather here has been crap (rain, rain more rain). Thanks for replying and any help / tips. Eventually Im sure Ill get into bugging and maybe jumps, but for now Im content scudding along and kite placement in the window...
