    Product Description

    19-ft Mesh Delta Kite
    An enormous kite that’s a gentle flier, the 19-ft. Mesh Delta is as impressive in the sky as it is on the ground. The work that goes into hemming and sewing together all of those strips of nylon is amazing. German kite designer Willi Koch used to make them himself and won lots of awards for them. They take an incredible amount of time to make. Light enough to fly in light winds, they have a moderate pull even in strong winds, when all of those holes in the sail come in handy. 19’-0” x 9’-5”. 52” case. Made of ripstop nylon with carbon and fiberglass spars. Wind Range: 4 to 20 mph. Use 500-lb. Dacron line.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I'd toyed with buying this massive kite for the past year, and with the Spring Winds here in Tampa, I am glad I 'sprung' for it. Setting this up the first time is a chore in the wind as it was tough with the kite flapping to even find the barely noticeable openings for the wind poles. I wished I'd opened it up and figured it out at home out of the wind first. Not that it's difficult, because it's not. A simple Delta kite setup, just those openings are tough to find in the wind. Anyway, Once together, the kite takes off easily with my wife holding it and I let out about 30 feet of line, and it went right up at the beach in 8-18 mph somewhat gusty winds. Once up, I tied it off to a sand anchor and it just flew up above the beach all afternoon - steady and huge and a gorgeous sight in a sunny sky that I really appreciated - and so did everyone around us. The kite does have quite a bit of pull, though, but not unmanageable thanks to it being mesh. Expensive? Yes! Worth it!

    This wonderful design by Willie Koch is a monster in size
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This wonderful design by Willie Koch is a monster in size, but quite gentle by nature. It's a very big kite, so not for the inexperienced, but certainly not scary if you know what you're doing. It's one of my favourite kites, and is guaranteed to attract a lot of attention. It will carry whatever tails you care to put on it, and lift a lot of line laundry. It's certainly not cheap, but for all the work that goes into it (hundreds of pieces are sewn together to make it) the value is good. I'm sure no-one ever regretted buying one.
