A great stunt kite for a great price
This is a great beginner/intermediate stunt kite! I'd never flown a stunt kite before, and I picked this up before heading to the shore for a week-long vacation. Make sure you watch some tutorial videos online (as I did) because the documentation that comes with the kite is minimal. But the kite itself is great! I was doing loops within the first 10 minutes and a pretty decent figure-eight within a half-hour. I flew it four times, for an hour each time, and it held up through a few hard landings (okay, crashes) when I tried to get too fancy. I was able to get it up and going even on days with low wind.
If you have some stunt kite experience and you're trying to improve your tricks, I'm sure you know better than to buy a kite like this. But if you are new to the world of stunt kiting and want to give it a try, this kite is totally worth it!

A Good Value Delta Kite !
Been years since flying any stunt kite. Had this one over a week or two and finally had favorable winds.
Launched easily, decent handling but a newbie may find it quick and responsive.
It failed to launch on receipt awhile back, but too low of winds likely the reason.
Had lots of recent flights on an airfoil the Big Buzz, sure this helped on the maiden of this fun kite. This one needs some decent breeze. Find a good value purchase! Fun ahead!
Had nice strong Breezes today and flew beautifully.
I personally suggest an airfoil like the Buzz or Big Buzz as take more abuse on learning.
Again launch will challenge the beginner, as swift respone needed to clear the ground on take off.

Great at the beach for 10 year old
I bought this for my nephew for his tenth birthday. The first time we took it out, it was really easy to assemble and get setup. It took a few tries, but he was able to get it up and going, but the wind wasn't quite strong enough, which was a bit surprising. The next day the wind was really kicking and he was doing swoops and loops with no problems.
Needs two people, make sure you bring patience because you will crash frequently.
After three days of usage, one of the white support struts started to splinter, but did not break entirely so we left it alone.

I loved dual-stringed kites when I was little, but somehow I lost the dexterity with age :) This kite is cute with the skunk-face, is made from rip-stop fabric, and may be fun to fly if you know what you're doing. I eventually had to give up after crashing so many times and tangling my lines. Of course, this has much more to do with me than the kite. There aren't a lot of dual-stringed kites for under $20 and this one is just fine if that's what you are looking for.

All in all a fun time!
I bought this kite for a weekend camping trip on the beach. Firstly, I'm not a professional and this was only my second time ever flying a stunt kite. Assembly was fast and easy. On the day I decided to fly the kite the wind was at a less than modest 3-6mph. Needless to say it took some patience to get it flying. I crashed it a few times but everything held up nicely. The nose which usually takes the most damage during a crash is made of a knitted polyester, and faired very well to my unwanted nosedives. Once in the air with good wind behind my back the kite handled well and for a "newbie" it was easy to get use to. My only complaint is that the string it comes with frays easily. But I was flying on a beach that had shrubbery so when I crashed it got tangled in them. So avoid getting the strings caught up in anything if you want them to last. Lastly, I found that this kite works well if you have decent wind behind your back, otherwise get a bigger kite...which is what I'll be getting the next time I go to the beach!

Highly recommend as a beginner stunt kite! Quality kite for a low price.
This is a great beginner kite. The key to flying is that you make small adjustments to control your kite, which is difficult to do as a beginner. The wind speed range of 6-20mph is a little generous, I don't think you'll get the kite in the air with anything less than 10mph. This is a good quality, inexpensive kite that can survive being crashed multiple times. In The Breeze is a great company that stands behind their products. I had an issue where one of the "Nocks" came off my kite. I contacted In The Breeze and they sent me 2 replacement nocks immediately. 2-days later, I had my kite back in the air. The 48" is a great size, but now I think it would be fun to try something bigger, so consider that as you look for a kite.

Experience helpful but not required.
If you are experienced with stunt kites you can have a lot of fun with this kite. It is small, fast and turns on a dime. If you are just learning to fly 2 line kites this could be very frustrating. I started out with a 2 line airfoil or power/traction kite as they are a bit slower and more forgiving. That being said you can learn on this kite, might be somewhat challenging but it can be done. Also mine did not come with a tail attachment, you can make one by sewing or gluing a loop with a piece of fabric or heavy string to the tail end, this may help to stabilize it a bit more and they look cool.

Great kite, line is another story.
It arrived on time with no damage. Haven't flown it yet, waiting for a good wind day for a beginner. The reason I'm not giving a 5 star rating is one of the lines had a knot in it and as I unwound it, it appeared as if the manufacturer ran out of 80 ft line so they tied two together. That I would expect a novice like myself would do not the mfg. I will definitely recommend this to others

This is my first two line kite. Just for a little background on me I have multiple rc airplanes and a couple racing drones I built. I love things that fly. This kite is a blast and very relaxing with a good wind. Watch a couple YouTube tutorials and have a little patience. It's durable and well made for the price. I have crashed it several times and it doesn't look like it's going to break anytime soon.

Well I found out today I really suck at flying a stunt kite
Well I found out today I really suck at flying a stunt kite. Kite overall decent seems a little flimsy but dont let that fool you I crashed ALOT and it lives to see another day. I did get it in the air finally with steady hands but once I tried anything fancy it came spinning down keep in mind spinning down to the ground means alot of unraveling..If your looking for a kite to just fly this is not the one..If your looking for a kite that really pisses you off bingo you found it..Takes 2 people to fly in my case 4 but whatever the 60 seconds I had it in the air was fun.
