Most gangs like to associate with famous boxers, but before being admitted to The Rabbit Gang. The Punch had to walk a path through the hardest fight club on the planet. He didn't fail. Not a single fight. He didn't lose, not even once. Nor did he let down his crew. And so, despite his overlapping skills with the main Gang players, he was fully accepted by The Boss and offered a job. And the good old Smoke is simply happy to have a bigger buddy he can always rely on and hang out with... The Punch, a 10,5 m gangster, the biggest of the "V" Rabbits that ever existed.A super powerful yet still very responsive and fun kite that will send you out of the ring...

Excellent Kite

Went to the "Demo Day" at the local beach. I think there were probably around 10 different kite companies there. To be honest I hadn't even planned to demo one of the Wainman kites. I don't fly this style of kite and I never really cared for the way Wainman markets their brand. Weird, I know. But it's always kind of put me off their kites and never made me want to try one.

Anyway, I was standing around waiting for another brands 11m kite to be brought back since they were all out on the water. Had been standing there for at least 10 minutes and the Wainman rep comes up and starts talking to me. Then ask if I would be interested in taking one of their kites out. I really wasn't, but was tired of standing on the beach so I said sure.

I didn't expect to like this kite. I'm not sure I wanted to like this kite. Without a doubt this is the best kite I've flown this year. By far. I was surprised. Shocked. It was pretty gusty when I took the kite out. I thought I was going to be overpowered. This kite was so smooth. The gust were no problem at all. It easily handled them. It's power delivery was perfect. Smooth but still strong. The kite jumped really well. It didn't take long to adjust my style to where I could consistently get some decent jumps with some nice hang time. I found the kite turned quickly and delivered the power in a predictable manner.

Without a doubt this is the best kite I've flown this year. If you get a chance I would definitely recommend trying one
