This kite flies steady and holds it's position on high wind days making it ideal when flying 2 or 3 kites.
SFE High Wind Fishing Kites
We recommend the SFE Kites to all our customers who fish kites. The SFE is a professionally designed and hand crafted kite. Each kite is individually splined, this process assures that your SFE kite will fly steady. All SFE Kites are individually handcrafted and manufactured in the USA and backed by an iron clad warranty.
This high wind model used when offshore conditions wind conditions are higher. The model 1683 is recommended for anglers using electric kite reels that feature a higher speed retrieve (see Buyer's Guide for SFE model 1683). The major difference between the all wind models and the high wind models is a series of strategically placed holes that allow the wind to penetrate the kite, thereby reducing the resistance on the surface area of the kite. These holes allow the kite to fly steady in high winds, as well as protect the spars during flight, and during retrieval. The Model 1684 features 40 large diameter holes.
Unlike other "SFE Clones" made overseas, the SFE will not fly erratically. A steady flying kite is imperative to assure the successful deployment, and overall quality of the kite fishing experience. The individual splining of each kite is what assures the performance of each kite. This is the most popular kite amongst professional tournament anglers, and the kite's performance is the very reason why.
The SFE is not the least expensive kite available, however it is the only one that will perform flawlessly. We have tested several other kites and hands down the SFE is vastly superior to all the others. Kite fishing is a technique that requires practice, the SFE Kite will assure that your first and subsequent kite fishing experiences are enjoyable as well as productive. As we say:
SFE Kites are Often Imitated, but NEVER duplicated!
