Icarex vs. Carrington

The point you bring up about Carrington vs Icarex is exactly the crux
of the bisquit so to speak. 

Carrington stretches. Icarex doesn't. So it depends on the kite design
like you say. Some makers prefer the stretchyness while others prefer
the taughtness that Icarex maintains. R's Kites now swears by
Icarex and swears at Carrington. I'm syre their are other out
there just the opposite.

One thing that needs to be mentioned is that Icarex has about 3 times the
colorfastness of Carrington so that kite stays looking nicer for a 
considerably longer period of time.
