Kite sticks!

Back in March, I wrote a wee teaser post about new kite sticks. Well, if you looked at the pictures of last weekend's Basingstoke Kite Festival, you may have noticed we finally got them! The reason why it took so long are for another time, and include the Belgian postal system not exactly being covered in glory ....

But good things come to those who wait, don't they? So here is our new set of kite sticks!

They're made by Team Flying Dragon, of metal, polished to a high sheen. When I saw them, I knew I just had to have these pieces of kite jewellery ... And why four, given we're a pair? Well, they came with the central nut in four colours, which just happen to match the pair colours in our clothing (blue - red) and T5 kites (green - orange). And we can now also take one or two extra people 'sticking' if necessary.

Of course, these new sticks aren't going to make us fly better all of a sudden. But sometimes it's nice just to treat yourself ...

And when not in use, they live snugly in a wee pouch.
