    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? This is a great kite that draws lots of comments from club members and the public. I have the "beast" version and it looks majestic in the sky and flys fantastic. It has to be one of best dragon kites on the market. It moves around a bit - like dragons are supposed to - so make sure it has a bit of room around other kites. Once again thanks to the ITW guys for helping me get one of these kites downunder. Shawn

    What is your opinion of this product? This kite is really fun to fly. I flew mine on Monday and I could really tell that this kite is really steady and rock solid. I also have the beast version.

    What is your opinion of this product? This kite is fantastic! Nothing to assemble, flies straight from your hand, looks amazing in the air, and so easy to roll up and put away in the high-quality ITW case. \ \ Like other reviewers, I have the Beast version, but will probably buy at least one of the others. The best value-for-money kite I have yet seen. \ Jim Nicholls, New Zealand.
    This is a great kite

    What is your opinion of this product? I bought the Beast version and have been very pleased with the performance and especially the look of this kite. Construction is first rate, colors are awesome and it flies in a wide range of wind. \ I have a stable of stunt kites I have flown over fifteen years, never thought much of single line kites until now. The Beast is the first of several single line kites I have bought recently and it will remain one of my favorites for a long time to come.
    Six months ago I bought the Beast version of this kite

    What is your opinion of this product? I have been on a business trip to portland and used the weekend to go to the pacific ocean. But I haven't got a kite (of course) in my baggage, so I decided to buy a used kite in portland. Since I got a Scintillion from Into the wind (with best experiences), I decided to buy a beast versionof this kite. And it comes again with a stunning bag for transportation. Getting the kite out of the bag, I realized the quality, the used kite was in 1A condition. \ The Artwork is very nice and beautiful in the sky. Even though I am sewing and constructing my own kites, I would never do this one, because of all the panels that have to be put together. You would not get the same quality, when you are ocasionally doing this. \ The price quality relation is a five rating at sure. \ Get it, pull it out and fly it without preparation, thats easy and was exeactly what I needed for a pleaure kite day on an ocean site which I may not come that early again. \ And in addition, since the bag was to big for my suitecase, I just bend it in half the size (sorry guys) and it jump out of my suitcase at home in germany as it was freshly bought. Obviously undestroyable! What is your opinion of this product? When I was a kid I didn't care much for kites. I think it's because where I lived we spent as much or more time trying to get the things into the air as we did flying them. I'm 36 now, living in San Francisco where I see people flying kites in our amazing parks and beaches all the time. I was at a park a few weeks back and saw a few kites and thought, maybe I should buy a cool kite. I went home and found this website after looking at a few on Amazon. I looked through and found this Dragon Beast kite and knew that was the one I wanted. Quick shipping, pre-assembled, line included with clip so you don't have to untie/retie to other kites. My expectations were surpassed. I received it Thursday,, had to wait until Saturday to try it out I looked online for the best park to go to and gosh darn it if I didn't live next to what was rated as one of the country's best parks to fly kites in Berkeley CA. I knew they held a kite festival there every year with 100's of kites but I'd never been. I got a friend jumped in my car and across the bay bridge we go with a picnic and the Beast. We arrive to a beautiful sunny day with sail boats everywhere and fancy kites aloft like Coy Fish and the Scuba man which I saw on here as well. I picked a spot where I could see the Golden Gate bridge and downtown SF's Skyline and pulled the Beast out of the well made bag it comes with. Having been a fisherman I used the clip and tied a nice slip knot onto it and clipped it on the Beast. My friend is a photographer (I'll post pictures if I can) and he was taking photos of stuff as I put the Beast on the tips of my fingers and without any hesitation it lifted up and that 30' tail whipped around like a happy dog and up it went. My friend was astonished and said I've never seen a kite just go up like that. He took some photos of Us (me and the Beast) as I unwound the string more and more. Before long it was waving high in the sky, the tail whipping around and the face going side to side like a kid full of sugar and caffeine. People stopped by a few times saying what an amazing kite asking if I bought it from the kite man that apparently works the park since it's known as a kite haven. I had no idea of the kite man and I told them about this store and my online purchase. The colors are amazing and it's so easy to fly yet fun. As I wound it down it got even more lively and at one time I had it about 5ft from me while my friend stood under it's whipping tail taking pictures as the colors raced all around. Basically you couldn't keep this kite from going into the air, it was the most effortless launching kit I've ever seen. I'm planning on buying more kites from here so I can get my friends to fly with me. If you're looking for an amazing colorful lively kite that's super easy to fly this is definitely the one. I just turned 36 this month yet I felt like a 12yo while I had the string in my hand.

    What is your opinion of this product? I picked up a cobra version of this kite on sale and took it to a local park to fly. I needed another person to hold it up to get it into the sky, but as soon as the wind hit it the kite flew pretty easily. I agree with the other reviewers that the pictures on this site definitely don’t do the cobra kite justice. The cobra is magnificent in the sky, and it moves like a real snake in the wind. I love this kite!
    This kite is really fun to fly

    What is your opinion of this product? Six months ago I bought the Beast version of this kite, and was delighted with it. I now have the Cobra, which naturally flies just as well. It also looks much better in the air than it does in photos, and I am so happy with it that I shall probably buy the third member of the family to complete the set. These are real fun kites at a very reasonable price.
    This kite is fantastic
