Very Satisfying First My-Best-Kite Experience!

The MBK Dowel Diamond Kite
Just made my first MBK kite - the Dowel Diamond - and I absolutely LOVE it!
Used a super light trash bag and got the kite up in almost no wind. It is soooooooooo beautiful in the winter landscape as the light changes. It appears and disappears as it moves from opaque to translucent. People walking by had fun trying to figure out what I was flying!
This kite helped me realize I don't need to spend big money on mass-produced kites. I discovered I really like light wind kite flying in which the kite lifts easily and floats gently. The subtle changes of breeze and lift are so much more noticeable and enjoyable.
Thanks for a great website. I plan to make more MBK kites soon!
