Test Results

We first flew/tested the Premier 30 inch Penguin Diamond kite in a wind range from about 6 to 13 MPH. NOTE: The tow/attachment point on the bridle is in the wrong place.  We needed to attach an alternate pig-tail (attachment point) about 1 inch above the factory setting to get this kite to fly at a high angle.  In this wind range the kite flew mostly steady with the kite line attached to the alternate attachment point.  At higher wind speeds the kite starts to lean and become unstable.
The instructions did not state the recommended wind range. We estimate the recommended/realistic and safe wind range to be about 6 to 13 MPH.  FYI: Around 18 MPH sand starts to move/blow across the beach where we test our kites.

Kite Contents: 30 inch Diamond kite, three hundred feet of
20 pound test line on a plastic hand winder, vinyl storage bag, instructions.

The dimensions of the kite are 32 inches wide x 30 inches  high.

The kite requires modifications to the bridle. See NOTE
above. It is a fixed bridle.  Assembly is quick and easy,  just insert the 2 fiberglass struts into the corners of the backside dacron pockets and center molding.  The instructions are clear to understand using both text and diagrams.

The sail is made of appliqued ripstop nylon.  We were
impressed with the stitching and applique for a kite in this low price range. The kite is hemmed for durability.  The 2 struts have rubber end caps to prevent them from protruding through the pockets over time and causing splinters in your fingers.

The small sail area of this kite lends itself best for visual appeal at a height of about 100 feet or less. The Penguin design is very colorful in the sky. It also includes a ribbon tail which helps improve the stability of the kite somewhat.

Summary: The Premier 30 inch Diamond kite is a fair value for children when using the alternate attachment point setting.  
 
The 30 inch Diamond comes in many designs:
Penguin, Dolphin, Butterfly, Flames, Jet Plane, Patriot,
Poison Dart, Rainbow, Rainbow Flames, Rainbow Fountain,
Shark, 3 Fish, 3 Ladybugs, Traceratops, Skull and CrossBones
