  6. Wow, it has been a while between drinks for PKD, this appeared thanks to Don Edwards & David Wilmer in the PKD group.
  7. No, that's not a mistake.... Rub your eyes a bit.... Let this sink in properly.... PKD has come back from the dead with their first ever depower kite being a closed cell race kite called the Inferno! Kite & Friends have a video of a pre-production 12M kite and like most things PKD, they don't do it often but when they do it usually looks stunning or menacing. I have a soft spot for PKD, over a decade ago they were my very first kite and they've always produced a robust, well-built kite. The profile shape, the colours, the overall appearance and presence of the kite in this vid
  8. PKD Buster II 1.4M $150 Complete with Lines, Handles & Bag. In excellent condition, flown only a couple of times. These are some of the toughest small, high-wind kites you can own. Built stronger than most of today's small power kites with re-enforced vents, fully sleeved bridles, heat-shrunk knot covers. It's the sort of kite you either want as a beginner or you stick in your bag as an experienced kiter for those 30+ knot days! All prices exclude postage. Pickup welcome, located in Melbourne.
  9. Having just seen Weldngod's thread on his new PKD Buster Soulfly Pro on PKF, I thought I'd have a sticky at the PKD site and share it here..... Nice to see a new kite from PKD as it's been a few years since their last update (which I think was the Century Soulfly II). The BUSTER Soulfly PRO is a complete new 4 line design for traction beginners and intermediate flyers. It can be flown with 4-line handles or on the new “4-line Soulfly bar” which is optional. BUSTER Soulfly PRO Details: - Distinctive PKD Tribal artwork on top and bottom of sail - Reinforced bridle attachement points - Reinf

    PKD Brooza MKIII

    Well, after owning these kites for some time, I feel confident that I can put something down about them which may be of use to others! I had made the same mistake a lot of guys make when starting out flying – I thought my abilities were a lot better than they actually were and ended up with several race-kites I simply couldn’t fly – to be honest, they scared the cr*p out of me after a bad experience in the buggy which saw me flying backwards at very high speed with absolutely no control! At this point I almost gave up flying, and then a friend lent me a 4 meter Brooza (MKII I think)

    PKD Buster II 4M

    Been flying the buster 2 4m for sometime now and in doing so thought id do a quick review of the kite. On recieving the kite, it came in a blue stuff sack which was ok not really much use for anything else because you can only get the kite,lines,stake, and handles in there, also two bags which you can fill with sand or rice to help hold the kite down if you wish and some stickers,instructions you download from there web site all helps to keep the cost down. On setting it up straight forward, although it would have been nice to have different colour brake lines to the power lines, hel
  12. This is my second review, my second Kite but my first 4 line kite, so please bare in mind that I have limited experience, therefore my review is based on a beginers point of view. What's Included? Kite, Lines, Handles, A pair of Kite Killers, Stickers, Sew on labels, Ground Stakes, Pouches (to weight the trailing edge) Sack type bag. The Kite. Being the 3.0m the colour is mostly red with a single black stripe and white trailing edge. Material seems to be nice and crisp, stitching appears to be of good quality. The bridle seems quite complex to a novice such as mys
  13. I have only flown stunt kites before and spent some time playing with a small powerkite several years ago. I've fancied getting a powerkite for a while now, it happens when you hit your forties, mid life crisis and all that. Another motorbike was out of the question and too expensive so the idea of a kite seemed reasonable. I did a lot of research (mostly on this site). I considered one of the Radsail pro's or a Beamer, but then thought a Crossfire would be fun as the idea of a bit of lift appealed to me. I hadn't even heard of PKD until I saw one on ebay, so I checked out the review
  14. Introduction Although there is now the Mk II of this kite this is a review of a 3m Mk I. After I had decided that the buggy was the form of traction that I wanted to continue with, it was time to upgrade the Beamer II to a more intermediate type of kite that would give me pull but minimum lift, I also needed something that wasn't going to luff as most of my flying is inland. After looking around the web for something a little different, and reading what people had thought of different kites, I opted for the PKD Brooza ready to fly option. The Bag and Contents. The Brooza's come i

    PKD Brooza

    Unpacking this kite was great, I bought this kite from a local shop (UFO kites) as a ready to fly package, It was my first kite, so I was extra specially exited, the set includes- - The kite (red) - the colour coded lines - the handles with strop - 2 orange stakes - to orange sand bags - PKD kite killers - the instructions The kite was crispy as you would expect, and has nice graphics of a bird in the middle, which looks great and the lines are ready attached to the handles and the kite. The fist time I took out this kite I spent about an hour of constant flying, the wind
  16. Introduction But ye gods, this is a responsive kite. The handles are shorter that any other kite I have flown, but to me this is an advantage. The control that I have over it is instant. I was flying it at Skypark, using my buggy, and the winds, although coming from the west from the sea, were unusually blustery. The gusts were between 12mph and 25 mph. A large range, and it gusted up in a second. The kite just took all this in its stride. It happily let me ride on a close reach, using the strength of the winds, it let me buggy round the mound in the middle of the field, and it let m
  17. I received my new PKD Century 4.5m this weekend, and what can I say, this kite is absolutely awesome! I've been buggying on and off since 1997, but I've kept my original kites that I've had all this time - a Skytiger 40 (3.7), a Skytiger Hi-60 (5.6), and a couple of years back I got a Quadrifoil Q2002 for strong wind days. I've been meaning to buy a more 'modern' kite for a long while, but it's taken me a long time to get round to it. Anyway, after reading many reviews and knowing that I wanted something that would provide a lot more oomph but would not be unstable at the edges of
  18. My first experience of PKD kites was, like many people, the Buster. Which I really enjoyed, but had some doubts over the build quality, especially the bridles. So when I started looking for a higher-perfromance buggy kite, I was a little bit wary of PKD's race kite, the Century. I couldn't have been more wrong. The quality of the kite is simply outstanding. Double-stitching, reinforced cell openings, mylar cell stiffeners, loads of internal strapping and bracing, and colour-coded, stitched kevlar bridles. Not to mention the beautiful 'Soulfly' graphic on the upper surface. Genuine 'paragl

    PKD Buster

    What a great kite!!! I nearly bought a 3m Firebee but was talked out of it by the guy at the shop who seemed to know his stuff. Basically it looks like a D shape in the air and flys very well. It stays inflated in even extremely low winds, so low I have had to keep walking backwards to get it to launch. It generates plenty of pull when you get it moving. I haven't had it out in a strong wind yet but in a nice clean 10mph plus it launched well and flew perfectly. The only thing that I have had a problem with is the bridle adjustment - not great instructions in the bag. Fortunatel

    PKD Buster

    From the number of reviews here it's obvious that these are popular kites and in my experience, with good reason. For a first kite I was seeking a number of things; something easy to fly, robust, not too expensive and yet of decent quality to last beyond the early learning stages. From reading reviews and seeking others opinions it seemed that the Buster filled these criteria and when one came up for sale on eBay I bid for and bought it. Buying secondhand is always a bit risky, especially when it's something that is likely to have been used or abused by someone at the bottom of the l

    PKD Buster

    i am new to power kite flying ..but a lot of experience in sailing and windsurfing.. so i thought i would have a go at the power kites and i bought the buster 3 mtr on ebay . firstly, i have never flown a 4 line kite before. i took it down to the beach and out in a calm wind (what i thought for here) ...10 knots!! as it draged me for 5 or so meters when i launched it.... i was starting to grin at the new power i had found!! so i gently pushed it in and out of the power zone and sliding across the sand each time and getting a bigger smile every time. since that day i have le

    PKD Buster 3M

    After much searching and saving I made my entry into power kiting and purchased the Buster. Firstly, what value for money! I shopped around and found the 3m version for £120 (www.powerkiteshop.com), which considering the amount of kite you get is great value for money! So, next day I find a big royal mail parcel waiting for me downstairs and later that day i'm up at the local playing field with a PKD bag in my hands and a grin on my face. The kite was easy to set up and I had it in the air very quickly. Having only stunt kited up untill now and gotten bored of that, i had no idea of the p
  23. I look at the PKD Buster 5.5 metres squared. Firstly I try to explain how the kite works. The PKD Buster is unusual in that it has adjustment that no other fixed bridle kite has. Then I look at what I feel are the bad points. Following this, I look at its good points; this is definitely in the flying of the kite. Finally this I draw a conclusion. To begin I will try to explain how the kite works, this centres on the unusual knots on the bridle, which allow for the adjustment. I have been in contact with the UK rep for PKD and the information given was as fol
  24. So... after getting into the sport quite early this year through a friend, i decided to get my own kite. At first i had seriously considered a 3.5 Bullet, although after advice from my local kite shop I went for a buster from them. First try was on the day we got it, it was about 15MPH and i hadnt ever tried a 4 line 3m before!!! Needless to say we brought it straight down. Thge wind stayed nasty for about 1 week until we decided to try it again. It was now about 5mph and was easy to hanlde the buster. Now 6 months after buying the buster i absolutly love it to bits! It

    PKD Buster

    Well bought this kite for the girlfriend, as she wanted to get into kiting, but not to be draged about like a rag doll. Having read a few of the other buster reports, i knew what to expect like the draw string bag, but wasnt bothered really, so wont go into the quality of the bag, good enough for this little kite and price. Well straight down the park at last we got some wind, about 12 to 15mph winds, that would be perfect for a first time for the girlfriend, remember she has never flown a 4 line kite only my flexi foil 6ft, having got the kite out of the bag it was so easy to set up
