All you need to know about that package is to take a look at the pump included!!!!!!!!!!! what a joke, one of my first kites after the 2-line Wipikas was a Naish AR-5, which was I believe the first 4-line kite on the market .............great for a beginner, yeah in 2003!!!!!!! :roll:

You'll never have an accidental release of the safety system.....because there is no safety system. You're hard wired to this baby.

I think I still have me shackle... remember when we used those?

Yikes!

Oh man! The famous Wichard Shackle:

I always wanted to put one of those on my Aero II bar system to get my *safety leash* untangled after a crash. Wasn't the AR5 the one that you could fly 2 lines OR 4 lines? I would go for the SkyPirate just for the fun of it!

I think it was the kite where you rode 2 line, then rolled up the tips of the kite. When the tips looked like the end strut does now days, there were two more pig tails like we have now. It then became a 4 line kite.

However....using the 4 lines was only for.."pus###s" as those who really knew how to ride and use your edge to control the power only used 2 lines.
