Manufacture: Premier Kites
Name: 5.5 foot Box Delta
Description: This a traditional delta conyne kite
Skill Level: Well suited for children and adults
We flew/tested the Premier 5.5 foot Wavy Gradient Box Delta kite in a
wind range from about 8 to 12 MPH. In this wind range the kite flew steady. The instructions do not state the wind range. We estimate the recommended/realistic and safe wind range to be about 7 to 14 MPH.
We recommend attaching tails to the kite at the higher wind range to improve stability. FYI: Around 18 MPH sand starts to move/blow across the beach where we test our kites.
Kite Contents: 5.5 foot Box Delta kite, 50 pound test line on a plastic hand winder, ripstop nylon storage bag, instructions.
The dimensions of the kite are 66 inches wide x 28 inches high.
The kite requires no modifications to the bridle. Assembly is quick and easy. Just insert the fiberglass cross spar into the side pockets. Make sure the leading edge spars are pushed all the way down towards the back of the kite. The instructions are clear to understand using both text and diagrams.
The sail is made of ripstop nylon. The sail is hemmed for durability. There are four tail attachments.
The small sail area of this kite lends itself best for visual appeal at a height up to about 100 feet. The Wavy Gradient and Tie Dye designs are very colorful in the sky.
Summary: At a price of $21.95, the Premier 5.5 foot Box Delta is a good value.
