On the west coast these kites will power through strong rip conditions in light winds that will defeat all other fishing kites.
On the east coast, in areas like the Bay of Plenty, kitefishers with these kites can often achieve real fishing pull when no other fishing kite will even fly.
The multicell sled design of the Power Chute and Mega Mouth Kite is best for downwind flight, although some experienced kitefishers have reported that they have been able to tack these kites up to 45 degrees off the wind.
These two celled kites have three keels and are very stable fliers that will provide constant pull in their wind ranges.
The Power Chute and Mega Mouth Kites are only suitable for the larger (65 kg plus) Bottom Longlines and Dropper Rigs.
Excellent for light wind areas, these powerful sleds are the ultimate for holding gear against strong rips or anytime you need additional pull.
The huge Mega Mouth Kite (pictured) tows out a 2.5 km 100 kg Bottom Longline Rig in 4 to 6 knots of wind. Four litres of sand is required in the float to keep the hook section in the water in 15 knots of wind.
The huge pull of the Mega Mouth is the reason why this clever kitefisher has built a power winch.
