Hey I have been recently collecting a Ocean Rodeo Bronco C-Kite Quiver! I was wondering if anyone rode these kites back then or know and I would like to get a discussion on the BRONCO. They have become very cheap to pick up, I currently have in my quiver a 21M BRONCO ( BLUE/WHITE wow what a kite) and a 9M BRONCO ( RED/WHITE) Both handsome kites and still crispy. I think they are 2004 to 2006 I cant find a date on them. But I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what these kites are, are they hybrid c-kites or c-kites I have looked at the trailing edge and it is concave but the have Y bridles for the 5th line? Do I have to keep the fifth line slack or is there tension on it like hybrid kites I have read all the pdf’ s on these kites and there fifth line. They are vague. a good discussion on these kites would be very helpful to me.???? THANK YOU guys help please. LOVE or HATE lets talk about the BRONCO’s

Broncos were ‘C’ kites ... The fifth line was meant for relaunch & MUST be slack. Here is the Bronco manual http://oceanrodeo.com/images/uploads/kiting/pdf/KiteManual.pdf  & the fifth line manual   http://oceanrodeo.com/images/uploads/kiting/pdf/5th_Line_Manual_2005.pdf  ... While these kites are fun to fly keep in mind each kite has a limited wind range
