Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

To make them turn quick and tight.... steer with the pull / push method Depending on what you are doing the hand that pulls uses the fingers and the hand that pushes has open palm using the wrist area Doing like "tomtom" said both hands with fingers wrapped tight around the bar is not efficient for ...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

To make a big kite 17 and up turn properly fast you need to have the touch Those who say negative stuff about them just have not figured it out yet Proper kite and lines tuning are essential for sure Correct bar control input along the depower line is very important Don't choke that kite while downs...

Re: Cabrinha Contra vs. Core XR5 15 m

I’m 85-88kg and after a demo on the 19 XR5 late last summer I was sold. Turns better than most 17s I’ve tried out and like all the XR sizes the range and depower available is what impresses the most. If you do go for the XR I would suggest you consider buying the Sensor bar as well. It’s a quality ...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

Funny. With Hyperlink I’ve gotten in the habit of taking the bar off. BTW ..really enjoyed the funny foilholio novel...the best !!! From early days of one kite only for first 6 months on 5.0 LEI Wipika the bar & lines were always on. So this was normal. Got into ram airs afterwards.. had 11 sizes o...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

I've always been used to leave bar/lines ** never detach ** on all the couple dozen ram airs i have had All the foil guys here have converted from tubes, and continue the tradition of one bar for all their kites. Yes, they take the bar off the kite and yes they get it all tangled. Always good comed...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

biggest disadvantages of tubes are PIN HOLE leaks slow setup leaving lines connected is a pain Pin holes are rare and take less than 5 minutes to find on strut bladders or leading edge bladder when taken out..you need correct technique to find them Set up is not that slow...pump a LEI 17 to 7 PSI i...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

Pain in the A** for majority of people...don't you think ? Not much different than tuning bar line lengths. Mixer tuning is quite different...foilholio can write a novel about it I've always been used to leave bar/lines ** never detach ** on all the couple dozen ram airs i have had So now with no r...
