Does anybody know the first year the FUEL came out?
What was up with the Slingshot bar back then?
I had a 2000?-2001 B5 Foil, that had the side line safety,
ring-through-a-ring, never let me down, with long side leaders, so there was no chance of a knot to get hung up, when you used it.
I had a 2002 Fuel 160, which came with the same style of kill-leash. I sold the 160 kite in early 2004, when I picked up the some 04 Fuels.
The buyer let me fly the kite again late summer in 04, and remember it being a great kite. May not have had a a ton of depower in the chicken-loop, but it flew fast for a 16M, was stable and could jump.
