Guide to the Airush Union 4 - real world what's new, where it's gone, what it's like..

Hi All, Over here in the UK we have a good following on the Union series kites - so I thought it prudent to get this on the web as reference for anyone who's wanting answers when looking at the new Union 4. Airush do dance about with this kite between years and 2019 is no exception. So for all those...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

Mike, Although you are making a good point, I don't think that 1-2" either way make that much of a difference when a kite is in the sweet spot of its intended range. Try it first and then come back. Please. The extra power is more significant on this than any other Union, and turning is faster, tho...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

Just in from a gusty light session on the Union V4 12m Interesting. I'll post up full report on another thread, as this one I think is off on the wrong foot. Bear in mind I've flown the 1, 2, 3, as well as all the kites that proceeded it back to the original lift,and i've had my ear to the ground wi...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

I try mine tomorrow. 9 and 12. Not tried any of the V4 protos or anything V4 so far. Fluent in V1, V2 and VIII so far. Personal favourite was the V1, but the VII had more of a locked in feeling which was better for woo work. Going to be an interesting session :-) Had a long chat with Sam who was hea...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

We've had the V2's in the UK for a 10 days. Plenty of sessions on the 10, 9, 7m.. First delivery sold out, waiting for the second. 10 is an interesting kite. This and the sizes above have new shaping. As I understand the 9 and below are virtually identical. Look lovely in the air. Visually a big imp...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

In the UK we only have 9m left, no other sizes (maybe one 15) original production stopped and the next production is delayed so excess stock is hard to come by - and also - airush are a normal kite company - ie they don't manufacture for closeout, so I doubt there will be much clearance going on... ...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

What do you think about your airush wave 12 ? It's nice, and holds good power too, but in really light winds wave riding, generally I find frustrating - I would rather foil. If there is enough wind for the 9, which is not that much, then you can ride wave properly. I tend to throw the kite around a...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

I've had Airush Wave in 12 and 9 nearly every year since the first ones, and use the 9 Ultra exclusively for foiling. I struggle to keep a 12 Ultra in the van as it always gets sold from under me - they have sold really well in this size. They go out for demo and never come back. A 1st world problem...

Re: Airush Vantage 2016

Hey Fred. I've been searching for a woo advantage for a while and came across the vantage 2016 in a clearance list early in the year. I bought an 11.. It didn't feel like it ripped off the water like the union II, in fact the Union III feels like even more of an uplift, but when you check the hang a...
