Build quality of this quad-line kite is very good, nice clean stitches and a perfect symmetric sail. Used materials are all of highest quality. The lay-out of the vented panels of the Polokites is completely different compared to the other vented revolution kites. That makes the kite really super-controllable in higher winds. Quick response to the littlest inputs is outstanding (despite the long lines). But the smoothness is also impressive.
