Perfect for travel
This slipped into my suitcase so easily and gave me the best couple hours I've had in months, flying it by the ocean on a west coast vacation. It unpacks easily and was uncomplicated to assemble. It was sturdy against high-tide winds by the ocean; I was impressed. The only minor negative is that after a few hours' flying, the tail seems really beat-up and frayed, like ribbon that's gotten beaten up. But I guess that's basically what it is--and you only notice it up-close, not when it's in the sky, so it's hardly a complaint. I'm buying these kites for several friends now--it was just such a great purchase!

Studebaker or Prius?
Kites have been around thousands of years, as have cars. But this new diamond kite, constructed of Ripstop polyester, shock corded fiberglas rods and printed with vibrant fractal-based geometric patterns glows in the sky. You'll want one to fly and one to hang on the wall. It is truely that beautiful. As a 30 year stunt kite pilot, I rarely buy static line kites. This was a great choice. I hope Prism creates a couple of stunt kites with this 3D imagery!

For the price you pay, this kite is fantastic. My son and I have been flying this on the beach in severe wind conditions and it still looks like new - even after several severe crash landings! The only negative thing that I can think of is that it is difficult to put the kite back into it's case.

I remember buying paper diamond kites and flying them at the local playground. Welcome to the world of High Tech kite flying. I own 7 prism kites and they are all great. This one is a modern twist and a classic design. No offense to WalMart, but Prism makes some serious kites. Though a bit more expensive, they are well worth the investment. Give yourself a treat, by this one. You won't be disappointed.

great kite, little to carry, easy to fly
I can let my 7 year old fly this one on his own and it always works. We love this kite
