Level One Kites have generously donated the “Black Pearl” Pro reviewed here as a raffle prize for the upcoming Old Dominion Sport Kite Championships, ODSKC.
I don’t think that you will find a better overall kite at this price point. Sky Sport has managed to make this kite available at a much lower cost while meeting performance and quality expectations. The ATM SUL is so versatile, that you may find it becomes the one kite that you consistently take with you to the field.
The Shooter is a true R-Sky kite ! The shape and design are typical of the famous Roger Tessa Gambassi kite workshop. Richard Debray and the R -Sky team pilots are proving very successful with this kite and they demonstrate that France is still absolutely top notch in sport kite technology.
The Superfly is the creation of multiple UK freestyle champion Chris Goff. It is a cutting edge freestyle kite aimed at casual and competition flyers alike, designed to exploit a deep sitting turtle without compromising other tricks and general feel.
If you are looking to have some fun working on tricks when the wind has abandoned you for the most part, this kite can certainly fit the bill. It has a balance of light wind and tricks that is about right.
It’s been a long time since there were any published numbers for kite spars. The charts that I could find, were either outdated, or confusing. I couldn’t find out how these numbers were even arrived at. With so many new spars on the market, the time had come for some more recent numbers.
