They Green Jonesey, one more to be average Baloo, want a shockwave but each time I get the money together something crops up but one day, then the rest.

Green ... should have guessed!

Have you flown a shockwave if not I'll lend you mine next time we meet .... IMHO its by far the hardest kite to fly in the range ...I get mine out the bag whenever I think I'm getting the hang of things and it slaps me back down! Much better behaved on the front of my Progressive power stack though which I guess you would have then?

When I get the shockwave I'll have the components LOL
Have never stacked any type of kite yet, if I want more power I tend to get a bigger kite.
I may well try your SW out at portsmouth then last time tried your kite got a bargain so hopefully same thing happens.

see you next week.

Well, finally I found one......a Power Blast 2-4 (Red and White), to go with my Blast, Supersonic, 1.5 SLE and Indoor!

Just love the Blast in high winds (works well on the buggy) - and is also very precise in its flying....

Can't wait to feel the power difference between the Blast and the 2-4 though !

Does anyone have experience with the 2-4?


cheers

Hey Steve... good to hear youve got a 2~4 inbound ... yep there's lots of 2~4 chat on other threads ... so I'd better not get off topic and discuss it here or our fearless leader will be down on us like a ton of bricks ....

I will however just take this opportunity to mention however that as I type we have just leapfrogged Australia in the Medals Table in Bejing again ... ;)

One more to add to my count. iQuad bought me a mid-vent in Jade. And very nice to fly it is too, although it didn't seem to make me as good as the team ;) Not only that, it had a set of race rods in.

Thanks guys!

A similar theme........I bought a Supersonic off John B recently ...... I'm sure it's faulty....it doesn't fly like the iQuad DVD......maybe he takes returns..........

Hi! 1 vented 1.5 in Teal for my 'Tina, which she bought at Portsmouth. And, of course, the Gold Series B she bought me at Bristol (yes the 'pre flown' :D one)
No problems getting it up - It's using it properly that's the problem!

Okay John, put me down for one more ... this is not going well ... every time Choccy gets a free kite, I end up buying one. I would ask what's wrong with me, but that would start a whole new thread.

The count is now:

1 SUL ... Gold and Raspberry
1 B-series non-vented ... Purple
1 B-series vented ... Gold
