Re: Fuel backstalling problem.

Nothing wrong with my lines. I have 2 bars with lines all of equal length and it flies like shite off both of em. Think it's time to switch from Fuels :bye:

Re: Fuel backstalling problem.

My 2012 9m Fuel backstalls unhooked in 20knots, even when trimmed. I've had 2010, 2011 and 2012 Fuels and never had a problem with them. You shouldn't have to add pigtails etc to a 2012 C-kite to stop it stalling. Any idiot can trim a kite...christ!?!

Re: Fuel backstalling problem.

Hey The Joe, I just came across your post about your 2012 9m backstalling! I am definitely not imagining this then! The 2012 9m backstalls terribly, it's so bad that I'm considering changing from Fuels, because the older Fuels were better in my opinion. I've been thinking of switching to Vegas's for...

Re: Fuel backstalling problem.

Cheers edt, that verifies my belief that backstall is worse on the 2012. And you're right, relaunch seems better. I'll have to trim her and get her dialed in over the next few sessions. Think I'll give wakestyle mode another go too...

Re: Fuel backstalling problem.

I've never needed to trim Fuels at all to stop them backstalling, except the 9m when it's underpowered. I was just really surprised by how bad my 2012 9m was stalling, even when powered up! I'll just have to trim it a bit from now on I guess. Would flying it on wakestyle make much difference?

Fuel backstalling problem.

Hello, After a bit of advice about my 9m 2012 Fuel. For some reason it seems to backstall when unhooked much worse than the 2011 Fuel? Has anybody else noticed this? My 2011 9m backstalled a bit when under powered, but the 2012 stalls even when powered up!?! I have never had a backstall issue with a...

Re: Kite fatality in Montreal, Canada

I'd just like to add to that my friend would've surely drowned if he wasn't dragged downwind onto the beach. He was fighting like mad, trying to release and also tried to get his hook knife...fat chance! He was extremely lucky that the kite stopped on the beach for a split second, allowing my mate t...

Re: Kite fatality in Montreal, Canada

Very sad news. My condolences to the poor guy's family and friends. I just want to point out that the F1 Bandit is the most unsafe kite in my opinion. It has a super long bridle which once caught around a wing tip, will send you on a horrific death looping experience. I have seen this happen 3 times...

Re: Anyone modified their Compstick bar to Lenten's setup?

Sorry to hear about your shoulder dude :( Hope you recover soon! Thanks for all the info mate, I'm thoroughly on the same page now! I'm gonna get my setup exactly the same as yours but with an Ozone cleat instead. The best thing is that I can buy 5 metres of 12 braid spectra for cheaper than a Sling...
