    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? I love this tail! Easy to assemble and flies right every time. Well made and engineered. Looks great with my 9 ft. delta. It makes the kite look alive, more than any other tails I've used. DNA-like for the science minded flyer. Please don't buy one, though, as I'm rather fond of its' uniqueness.
    A simple review almost seems an injustice to this tail

    What is your opinion of this product? Very, very, cool. This thing really stands out in the sky. Very well made, comes with a nice nylon sleeve. Needs a leader of approx. 4ft. when flown from the line. My 11ft. delta lifted it and three tails without any problem in a 10mph. Have not tried to fly it as a tail, yet. In the 10mph breeze it was turning about 60-70rpm and looks just like the DNA helix in the picture. Awesome! \ \ Dave - San Diego
    This tail certainly creates a lot of interest

    What is your opinion of this product? A simple review almost seems an injustice to this tail. When it comes to showmanship and just plain awe, this tail is like a magician. Assembly is very easy, and she can fly in pretty light winds. Plus, the tails can be easily removed and flown independently. Though, a warning, this thing will draw a crowd.
    I love this tail

    What is your opinion of this product? I love how this thing combines size and motion - which is exactly what makes it so eye-catching. It's not too difficult to lift; my 6-ft delta conyne that I bought from ITW about 12 years ago was just enough to lift it in a moderate breeze. The bridle that holds the fins in place has a nice ball bearing swivel for attaching it to the line and not the cheap steel-scraping-steel kind of swivel. Also, all three of the tube tails have loops on their ends, so it's possible to extend them! The only ways in which I think it could be improved are if the main spar were lighter and could be disassembled into two pieces so that it's smaller when packed up; it's rather thick/heavy and really seems like overkill, plus it's longer than most of my kites!
    Very

    What is your opinion of this product? This tail certainly creates a lot of interest, and is very easy to use. I thought I was being clever when I packed it up, by rolling up all three tube tails together. That worked fine, except that they then didn't fit in the bag! It is great value for money, and highly recommended.
