I am going to concentrate on the Flexi blade 4- the latest version of the blade to be released, and without doubt one of the best tractions kites on the market. I think i can safely say that the mk4 is superior in almost all aspects to the previous models. Let me start with an introduction to the whole point of the blade series- The Flexifoil Blade has combined the very best elements of all their foil kites over the years and has produced a kite with even greater lift and better stability than ever before. This series is aimed for the experienced user, to provide extreme lift for getting big air in the right wind conditions. Flexifoil Blade 4 is designed with ... Read the complete review

I currently own a Blade 4.9, and have done so since the Blade first came out, in fact I had to wait for it to come from the makers Flexifoil. This is one kite that has lived up to its publicity as one of the world’s best power / traction kites. The Blade is now available in four sizes ranging from 2.6, 3.3, 4.9, 7.2 metres square. The small kites turn and move much faster than the larger kites. The large kites are for low wind speeds or if you want to really scare yourself! The Blade is air foil type kite, which means that the kite has no spars and is totally soft The kite requires the wind to fill it out and to give it it’s 'wing' ... Read the complete review

When I first wrote this opinion I did not own a Blade, I had however had the pleasure of flying one on several occassions, as a result of this I purchased one of the larger ones in the range. The Blade kite is available in four sizes ranging from 2.6 - 7.2 metres square. It is a foil, which means that the kite is made up of individual cells which fill with air so that the kite obtains a 'wing' shape which gives it lift. The Blade is easy to launch without assistance and is simple to control using the main two lines with the brake lines used primarily to assist turning and to brake. It is (at least in the larger sizes) not a kite for the ... Read the complete review

Flexifoil are surely at the very top of the powerkite game - their designs are exceptional, I certainly know more people with Flexifoils than without (who fly kites at least!). For me the Blade IV is the best kite they offer, bar the wonderful Sabre, which I believe is now discontinued. I will review two models - the 3.0m and 4.9m kites. So I will try to be brief. If you are new to kiting, I advise you begin with a 4-line, non traction kite before trying one of these - the 3.0m one turns faster than any other traction kite I have used and doesn't always pull smoothly, and the 4.9m one can be lethal with the amount of lift it generates. With the correct ... Read the complete review
