Description: This a variation of a diamond and dragon kite
Skill Level: Well suited for older children and adults
We flew/tested the Premier Dragon Diamond kite in a wind range from about 10 to 12 MPH. In this wind range the kite was stable and flew well. The instructions state the wind range to be 5 to 18 MPH. We estimate the recommended/realistic and safe wind range to be about 6 to 15 MPH.
FYI: Around 18 MPH sand starts to move/blow across the beach where we test our kites.
Kite Contents: Dragon Diamond kite, 300 feet of 80 pound test line on a plastic hand winder, nylon storage bag with cord lock, instructions.
The dimensions of the kite are 65 inches wide x 226 inches high.
The kite requires no modifications to the bridle. Assembly takes several minutes, there are 9 fiberglass/graphite rods which form the sail (head) of the kite. There are also horizontal rods evenly spaced along the tail to prevent the tail from folding/twisting. The instructions are clear to understand using both text and diagrams.
The sail is made of appliqued ripstop nylon. The sail is hemmed for durability.
The moderate sail area of this kite lends itself best for visual appeal at a height up to about 150 feet. The design looked very colorful in the sky.
Summary: At a price of $39.95, the Premier Dagon Diamond kite
is a good value. This kite is well made using quality materials,
construction and visual appeal.
The kite comes in different designs.
