The Nighthawk kite is very stable and a great performer.
The Nighthawk Delta in the picture on the left is shown with a 100kg - 1800 metre longline reel.
If you are using just this kite, around 10 knots or more of wind is enough to tow the gear out to the full distance offshore on the east coast.
This kite is often used with a Skyhook sail kite beneath it to increase power when the winds are very light, the surf is high, or if the longshore current is strong.
If you intend to do a lot of your kitefishing on the west coast, Paul recommends using a Nighthawk kite on a 65kg dropper rig for most conditions.
A Skyhook kite sail or a second Delta kite is also recommended for those who wish to fish the trickiest conditions on the west coast.
Note : Longline reel and mainline not included.
