Re: Do 2012 Slingshot Rally's Have a Cult Following?

I like new kites, so I replaced my 2012 quiver of Rallys with 2014. Dumb. I think I sold them for $375 each with bar. You can count me as a member of the 2012 Rally cult. New is always better, well yes.......... but not for strapless in the waves. The 2012 will loop to change directions on the face ...

Re: What's your favorite lightwind kite?

Another vote for Ocean Rodeo Flite 14.5 I am 175 and only ride surfboards in waves. We see lots of 3 foot days without a lot of wind. So I care most about handling. Bought it locally at retail, less a 20% discount. This kite is the first big kite for me that is FUN. It has pull at 10 mph. Re launche...

Re: Bars with longer depower stroke for surf

Slingshot and easy to replace the depower line with a longer line if needed. Low V, Single front line flag, and all four lines of equal length. The release and flag system on the SS Compstick are bullet proof reliable. I just use a hex wrench to unscrew the stopper that is useless for most surf rid...

Re: Slingshot swivel is rusted and frozen

Any changes to the 2012 Slingshot above-the-bar front line swivel? On my 3 kites, it takes two hands to turn the swivels. Sometimes they freeze tight. I started rinsing off the salt and sand, but it was too late to save them. Rust is dripping out from the China stainless. Back in 2012, I contacted ...

Re: FireWire fst w extra 6oz on deck withstand kiting?

I own 5 Firewires: Rapid Fire, FST, and Kite construction. Durability is in the same order. Eventually, even the FST will delaminate due to heel dents, but if you ride softly it will last a while. As with all surfboards, repairs are normal. My 5-8 Alternator FST is my high wind big wave choice. I pu...

Re: Dynabar or ?????

I have used the DaKine Maniac sliding hook for a year.
Slides smoothly with just enough drag.
No issues, no problems.
$60 from Windance with free shipping.

Re: Kite lines-do you do anything special to prolong life

For my depower rope, I dip it in candle wax. Lots of sand here, but not a problem. Never replaced one, since I started this method. Candles or paraffin work good, just don't use sticky surf wax. Melt the wax in an old tuna can on the range. Use a big piece of cardboard to prevent the mess. Dip the r...

Re: Slingshot Rally 14M vs. Turbine 15M ?

For light wind, I went from a 12m Rpm to a 12m Rally To a 14m Rally to a 14.5m OR Flite. I am very happy now. And laughing at the video...... tooo coool. In my experience, the 14M Rally is a kite for big guys.... massive power. A great kite that does everything well, but it is not a kite that is opt...
