Albatross Quad-Line Stunt Kite
The Albatross comes with a two wrap professional use, carbon rod frame set and ripstop nylon sail that is lightweight and reacts well to a wide range of wind speeds. The company has made their bridle material rougher than you're likely to find on comparable kites of this configuration and price point, along with stitching that has been made to hold up over time. The kite is packaged with additional end caps and an extra spare rod in the event a crash proves too damaging. There's also 25 meters of 150 lb gauge line with lightweight, padded handles that stay comfortable in your hands for as long as you fly. Speaking of flight, minimal hand work is needed to get the kite moving in either direction as it picks up well in even lower winds of around 10 mph. The Albatross launches and lands smoothly, allowing for kinds of maneuvers like spins and rolls with simplicity. This kite offers fast precision and top performance and the gauze vents are a nice touch here as well.
