Why is it that i am having such a hard time finding one of these? It is by far my favorite design of any kite out there and the new ones just don’t do it for me. :(

well maybe it’s because someone photoshopped that picture…
but you’re right, it would be a cool scheme for sure…

I would have thought that Kevin would know. grin

It might be down to: the colour balance of the camera when the shot was taken; or the colour balance of your monitor.  I took a shot of someone’s green kite the other week and it came out yellow until I set the levels correctly.

For 2009 and 2010 we have a “Green” and “Yellow” but to be honest with any illumination behind the kite they both look more Green…the actual Green just looks a little darker.

So since it just turned 2010, would kite shops still carry the yellow 2009 one still?

no, besides the one on the OR site, i don’t believe they released the complete color quiver for the 2010 year like they did for 09…

here is the 09 colors..

i don’t think they actually made that lemon yellow color in the pic above.  They made a neon yellow/green one like the one shown here:  http://oceanrodeo.com/ocean_rodeo_gallery/image_full/2345/

I’ve got a yellow 8m from 09 (Sorry not for sale) though I haven’t flown it yet, so it may have a green tinge to it, but its definately a neon colour.

milts, although that kite in the picture isn’t as goldish as the one in mine, it still looks yellow (although be it neon), but all the other ones i’ve seen that have been claimed yellow are waaaaay greener (lime).

(and dang you woody hahaa)

this supposedly has all the colors on the site. i almost bought a yellow one from them, but euros to USD ratio would put these suckers at nearly $1700, which is NOT worth the color.
