Popper Frustrations

Q:

Hey there Tim. I have a question for you or anyone who has had a similar problem. I bought a Popper the other day manufactured by Premier Kites. I went to set it up to use it and when I extended it like the instructions said to do, two of the spars snapped. Has that happened to anyone else or am I trying to do the wrong thing? Thanks for your help.

A:

OK, let's just throw this open to anyone out there who has bought and or used a Premier Kites Hopper! I think it's a fairly new product, so perhaps it still has some bugs to be worked out.

Has anyone done a successful repair job on this device perhaps?

Line Climber
by: Rob Friedman

I saw your comment about the poppers.. and I have been looking for a line climber that was great and is NLA.

I have the English Dunford Shuttle (actually works quite well if there are no knots on the line) and the 2nd version of the Gunther Ferry (batwing Black) which DOESNT work so well!

I used to have the first version of the Gunther Ferry which worked fantastic (red folding wings) but cant be found. Are there any others out there other than attempting to make my own?

Kite Popper
by: Gary Crenshaw (Hampton,Ga.)

Assuming you are talking about the line climber kite popper. I have had mine for a couple of years and never used it. The design calls for it to attach to the kite line from the open end of the string. Well, all of my lines are attached to the reels on one end and the swivels on the other end making it not worth the effort. I have other line-climbers that just attach anywhere along the line. This works much better.
