Product Description

The smallest and fastest in the Snapshot series, the 1.2 is snappy and quick-turning to keep you on your toes in a breeze. An ideal intro to dual-line control, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket, perfect for travel or those spur-of-the-moment flight sessions. Carefully shaped ram air inlets keep the wing from collapsing in gusty winds and the elliptical planform minimizes drag for speed and acceleration. If you crash while pushing the envelope, there’s no frame to break and in most cases the sail will re-inflate and launch itself without a helper. Comes ready to fly with Spectra lines pre-attached, flight straps, tail and compact storage pouch.

    Fun and easy to use. Great kite for the curious kiter getting into power kiting. Do not be disappointed if the first time you go out in low winds and it doesn’t have “pick me up” like you see in videos, it will in higher winds.

    This is a small, fast kite with long lines. It’s very compact and has a nice case. This kite works best in higher winds. What’s frustrating is that it takes too long to unravel the lines each time you fly it. Also, it traps sand easily because of the front vents. And, I was bummed to find that one of the lines was about 6 inches shorter than the other. Kite is good quality though, except for the line length problem. I sent the kite back to Amazon.

    Update: I later bought a 3m kitesurfing trainer and am very happy with it. It has a bar which makes it quick to unwind the lines and it pulls pretty hard with lots of wind. I’ve even started using it to pull me around on a skateboard. Also, I much prefer using a bar than two handles like the Snapshot.

    this is a great stunt foil kite that will stay up on a breezy day and on a gusty day it probably could tug around a pilot of about 100 pounds give or take twenty pounds)and it will keep your arms stretched out.this is not a kite for beginners, you should already have mastered atleast the basics of a normal stunt kite so this is easier to fly and it actually folds up back into the bag when your done!!

    Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2F08EPYPGEOUT I bought this a few weeks ago and just got to test this at the beach yesterday at Galveston, TX. I can say this kite is LOADS of fun. The pull is not too strong, yet it is comfortably fun, which additionally gave my wife confidence enough to try it (she got it up in the air at her first attempt!). The kite is very portable, with a nice pouch you can carry anywhere (eg: your day backpack). It is also pretty indestructible: I played around for about 2 hs and probably crashed it straight on the sand about 4 times, and upon inspection, no signs of wear, damage or alike were visible. As one of the reviewers commented, my kite also had one string a few inches shorter, but not bothersome enough to go through the hassle of returning the product. Flying it was easy and comfortable. Also starting it from the ground after crashing it required no outside help: just a few tugs and it was up again. Landing it was real easy: I found you can just glide parallel to the ground towards the sides, where the sail loses lift (lines almost perpendicular to wind) and was able to hover 6 ft above ground til my wife cought, hence preventing even more sand on the kite and lines (which is not adviseable!). Unspooling the lines I did not find was any trouble, as I just held the spool with my finger from a little hole it comes with, and walked back while the lines unfolded almost automatically. Winding the line up again did not take as long as expected. I would highly recommend this product. Once I manage to tame it, I will probably move up to a 1.9 or 2.5.

    My wife was having trouble adapting to 2 line kits so I got her a Snapshot 1.2 based on the reviews I read. Those reviews were correct! She had this kite up and flying on her 1st attempt and had no trouble keeping it in the air. I flew it and while it’s not as physically challenging as my Prism Quantum, it was just as much fun. Now I want a Snapshot, maybe a 2.5. This kite is very easy to fly and yet VERY fun to fly; even for someone who is more experienced flying stunt kites.

    I bought this kite to fly on the beach, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Prism is one of the best kite manufacturers in the world in my opinion, and it’s the only brand of kite that I fly. This was my first experience with a speed foil kite, but after a few minutes of practice, I was performing loops and skimming the ground with this kite. I like it so much because it is extremely compact and easily packs into any bag, it is extremely easy to fly, and it looks beautiful in the sky as well. It has a surprisingly strong pull, but it does not pull strong enough to be scary or dangerous, or to drag you down the beach. You can easily pick a spot and stay put though you may find yourself digging your heels in the sand on a windy day. I absolutely recommend this kite to anyone, and after owning this kite, I already bought a snapshot 2.5. I also own an EO6 which I would also recommend for smaller kids. You can’t go wrong with this kite, or this price on Amazon! : )

    I am no pro at stunt/power kites, but I have so far found this kite to be of very high quality. It is fast and responsive, especially in high winds. It folds down to an extremely small size. I recommend it. One complaint, I am surprised this thing costs $50! A little overpriced, if you ask me. But still a great kite.
