The Quantum Pro is made in the USA, unlike many of Prism stunt kites that are made in China. Prism also makes a cheaper
version of this kite called the Quantum, which doesn't fly nearly as well as the Quantum Pro. The Quantum Pro has quality
detail, sturdy construction and comes with a unique set of tail weights. Its harness is easy to adjust and comes with a length
of leader line for yo-yo maneuvers.
Dimensions, specs & cost
The width of the Quantum Pro is 7' 8", weighs 10.8 oz., and is rated for 3-20 mph. It is more like 6-20 mph. My rating
is based on how much wind it takes to keep it in the air without extraneous effort and not by the manufacturer's specs. The
minimum air speed of 3 mph, that the kite is supposed to fly in, is ridiculous. I purchased my Quantum Pro from The Kite Shoppe
for $252.00. Its current price around $280.00.
The Quantum Pro handles great. It flies different than my other stunt kites, with sort of a heavy feel on
the lines but it doesn't lack in performance. This stunt kite needs a moderate wind to perform well. When the right wind
is there, it is a real kick to fly. This kite comes with a set of weights that can be added to the kite, one at a time, to change
its flight characteristics. The weight is shown in the lower left photo. (Note that the kite is up side down in the photo.)
