    ITW Vertical Visuals' Roller Kite

    One of kiteflying’s best kept secrets
    Product Description

    ITW Vertical Visuals' Roller Kite
    Remarkably fun in light winds, Vertical Visuals’ Roller climbs steeply when you take line in and glides out gently when you let line out, so you can pump it up to better wind. Sensitive to line control, it’s maneuverable, like a big, slow fighter kite that can fly steady. Made of ripstop nylon with wood spars used because flight tests determined that wood resulted in the best flight characteristics for the kite. 3’-6” x 3’-9”. 45” case (This product has a shipping length greater than 42" and can not be shipped to most international addresses.) Wind range: 4 to 20 mph. Less with practice. Use 75-lb. Dacron line. Instructions included in the inside front pocket of case.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is more of a pre-review, since my comments relate to a previous Vertical Visuals Roller I bought from ITW, which came with aluminum dihedrals. It is by far one of my favorite kites to fly. It works well in tricky winds, can be adjusted for sail tension, and does indeed climb like a rocket. I've just ordered another, and will report any differences in quality or flight characteristics once I fly it.

    This comes without a scrap of assembly instructions
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I didn't think there were any instructions either, but when I took the kite out of the case the second time, I realized there's a pocket inside the case and the assembly instructions were in the pocket. \ \ I haven't had a chance to fly the kite yet, so I can't comment on that.

    Brilliant kite
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This comes without a scrap of assembly instructions. All the spars are wooden. BE SURE to seat the cross dowels all the way in the plastic dihedrals. If you do not, you will snap the center spine on first assembly. (3/8 x 43-1/2" dowel) It comes with a over-the-top heavy duty case. If they would send it with a simple rip-stop sleeve for a case and spend the money on a fiberglass tube center spine it would be an improvement. After I rebuild it I sure hope it actually flies.
