Product Description

Smithi Quad Line Kite
Anything but docile, Smithi has tons of power. It can stop suddenly and steer in any direction, even backwards! A sophisticated bridle system and one-way cell valves enable super tight turns without losing altitude. Where other soft quads will collapse, Smithi's canopy will have enough inside pressure to hold the shape and be fully maneuverable. With a little practice, it can fly sideways! Smithi is also not afraid of water, so take it to the beach. Fun to watch and even more fun to fly, this quad kite can be a challenge to control in stronger winds when it pulls like a wide animal. But careful use of the brakes can keep this sweet sensation in check. Made of ripstop nylon. 7'-5" x 2'-5". 7" x 19" case. Ready to Fly with 65' 300/200-lb. Dyneema quad lines, handles and winder.

What is your opinion of this product?
This kite is aptly described in the ad. Very well made. Flies fast, is highly maneuverable, and VERY strong pull (but not lift) in higher winds or gusts, so be prepared! Can do propeller spins, stop on a dime, fly inverted and backwards as well. A ton of fun to fly in its stated wind range...but again be forewarned about the speed and power in winds above 15 or so mph.

Excellent quad foil, great RTF.
What is your opinion of this product?
The Smithi is very well made of high quality materials. The complete kit is a great value, too. I prefer moderate winds for best control, but I occasionally fly it in 20+mph just to enjoy the surpising stronger pull and exciting maneuvering. Light wind is not worthwhile for the Spider as it will collapse at the edges of the window. This is an excellent and resilient kite that can be crashed and relaunched without damage. This kite will stretch your arms and make you rein it in by digging in your heels, but it can also be accurately controlled into a neutral bouyancy.
