Thanks,

Gerry

April in Utah

Re: Please Help Me - Light Wind Kite But Not Too Slow....

Hola Gigi,

I have always wanted to try the batwing 15... but no luck down here. Have you flown a Thruster 16? If so, how do they compare? Hopefully I will get to try one... someday.

Saludos,

Re: Please Help Me - Light Wind Kite But Not Too Slow....

Sorry man, but your bone has no meat on it. If you suggest a kite for at specific condition, maybe you should be able to argue some valid technical pointers, to why this kite performs well in this condition ... rather than the usual Eclipse noob arguement ... "it jumps high". Sorry man, but jump hi...

Yo Cavabando, I am not a pimp... take a look at my posting history before you start criticizing. Have you every flown the 16 Thruster? Do you weigh 200 lbs?

Re: Please Help Me - Light Wind Kite But Not Too Slow....

Hola Manuel,

I would try the Thruster 16. It is incredibly fast for the size and once the wind picks up a bit you jump VERY high. I have absolutely no association with Eclipse, but I really like the kite.

Si tienes oportunidad pruebalo.

Suerte,

Gerry

Re: learning to jump

in my experience with most tricks in Kiting... by the time you are asking if you should do it... you probably are ready.

Re: Eclipse Thruster 14 and 12

Agree with you on the punchy for the 12. I have a 16 and am realy happy with it. It is very fast, but feels smoother than the 12. I personally rather ride with a little more depower so that I am riding with the bar half way between me and the stopper. Then if a gust hits... just extend the arms a bi...
