Finally got a few quality minutes on the Insync. In my earlier post I listed some of the nice features that have been packed in to this affordable kite. I failed to mention in that post that the fit and finish of the kite was excellent. No short cuts taken as far as I can tell.
The kite is configurable in both a "precision" and radical or freestyle mode. I used quotes around "precision" as I think recreational would be a more apt description. My first flight was in this recreational setting. I hesitate to call the kite a true precision machine. It is well behaved and offers balanced and stable flight but I'll reserve the term "precision" for my Blue Moon's.
In this recreational setting the kite did offer up quite a few tricks including Jacob's Ladders, roll-ups as well as all your "basic" freestyle tricks (which is pretty much the total of my repertoire). I did struggle to get the kite to back spin and left that to my next outing in the freestyle configuration (hopefully in the next day or two).
I have had the opportunity to fly a whole lot of new kites and to be honest some times I have to force myself to keep flying them past an initial test flight. Not the case with the Insync. It was really enjoyable. I wanted to fly much longer than the 45 minutes or so that I had available for this. For me that is a ringing endorsement. I have already started recommending the kite to customers looking for an afforbale kite that will give offer a bit more than their beginner kite.
Don't think I'd sell off any of my high end kites in order to add the Insync to the collection but it is a fine second or third kite for the newer flyer that wants to travel into the world of freestyle flying world but can't or won't spring for a "First Class" ticket.
