Bought this kite after a friend brought a 1.9 version to a birthday party. This was is smaller and works well for the younger kids. Although smaller, it flies great and responsive! The kids loved it! Easy to figure out and fun for all!Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Already own the Prism Snapshot 1.2 Kite? Tell us your thoughts.
I love it but it could be improved

I love this kite. It is so much better than the old style kites. So my criticisms should not be taken as that serious. So here they are: One, the strings break. It's great that the kite comes with instructions on what the wind speed range is, BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT THE WIND SPEED IS WHEN YOU'RE OUT IN A FIELD? Sometimes I can use trees etc. to kind of judge the wind speed, especially since I've learned when the strings break. Second, it's a real pain to unwind and wind up the strings. I'm not too impressed with the winder thingy that came with the kite. I SPEND A LOT OF TIME UNTANGLING THE STRINGS. They get tangled when you fly the kite, they get tangled when you unwind the strings, they get tangled when you wind up the strings, they get tangled just sitting on the floor. OVERALL, THOUGH, LIKE I SAID, I LOVE THIS KITE.
Everything I could have asked for.....and more!

I purchased a Snapshot 1.2 while on vacation in the Outter Banks. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I had the kite unpacked and flying in a matter of minutes. The tricks I was able to perform were amazing! I'm so excited about the Snapshot 1.2 that I'm thinking about buying one of the larger models. This is an awesome kite. I would highly recomend it to anyone who in in the market for simple, virtually indestructable kiting fun.
Love it... it's our second one.

We love our Prism. I have a Prism 2.5 and it's great! I, originally, purchased this one for my son who is 8. He would watch me fly the larger one and could not fly it without assistance. The tug was too great on the 2.5. He loves the 1.2 kite! And it's a great challenge for myself as well. We're very happy!!!!

I thought this would be some kite that would give me some kind of serious workout but the kite isn't so big, so it's not pulling so much. Tried it on Crandon park Beach, good location for doing kite but the kite isn't as fast or as strong as I expected. shipping was a little long...
I NEVER THOUGHT KITING COULD BE SO MUCH FUN !!!

Kite is nice quality. Can do some cool stunts with it pretty easily. A little on the small side, but other than that it is awesome! Would definitely recommend you try it out!
Great Kite! - Fast and well built!

This kite is great! It's much faster and turns much quicker than the larger Snapshot Kites Prism makes, but does need a bit more wind than their larger kites to stay airborne as well! Packs up small, and is easy to put away (if you can fold a towel up, you can fold this kite up)! I keep it in the back of my truck and can easily pull it out whenever the winds are high enough to get it into the air! I would definitely buy one again! -Chris
Great Kite Exceeded my Expectations

My first acrobatic kite ... I read the instructions and launched.... Great fun from the start easy to learn and quick to progress to tricks that made people on the beach go WOW . Highly recommended for anyone nothing to break if you crash it. I could not relaunch from the controls but just a flip over and it was easy to start flying again.
We had a great time with this kite

The snapshot is our first kite and we just loved flying it in the park. It is definately going to be something we carry with us on outings from now on. Great fun! Love how portable it is and how easy it is to get up in the air. Be prepared, you need room to stretch 85 feet of line all the way out, to fly this, as you start lines all unwound. A beach or a field is a great choice.
Did you recently buy the Prism Snapshot 1.2 Kite? Write a review.
Great flyer and trouble-free

This fast little kite flies like a bullet in moderate winds! It turns fast, but no fear if you crash because there is nothing to break, and with a couple of tugs it launches itself again! Great for travel because it packs down to about the size of a paperback book. I would love to hear from others who have taught themselves to do tricks with these little snapshots.
