(made in 1988)
The Magic Kiss replaced the Full Race Magic IV. It is reported that the machines glide and speed are comparable to the Full Race but the handling and sink rate are noticeably better. The wider nose angle and higher aspect ratio makes the glider feel a bit more wingy but this is supposed not to be a problem. Landing is reported to be easier than the Full Race and the ground handling is also better. Mainly due to the use of thin wall lightweight 7075 tubing the machine is 10 lbs lighter than the Magic IV.
