Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

From my experience, explosion is connected with high kite speed. The smaller the kite, the stronger the wind and higher kite speed. Looking at Pansh offer, smallest is 7m and the speed may be not enough for kite explosion. Sizes 6,5,4 are much closer to explosion. I would prefer a walve that release...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

My recommendation remains: put the PMA back to normal and shorten C by 0.5-1 cm and fly the kite at least 20 hours. Sounds interesting. A small step in the direction of self-stable profile. I will try. Just before hiting the water kite has max speed that creates max pressure inside. This stiffens k...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

They explode from excessive speed. That is additional reason to reduce it some way, may it be fat profile, thicker trailing edge or jet holes opening at certain overpressure. Something that creates significant drag above given speed. Have seen small parachutes dragged on the trailing edge of the big...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

Setup with longer C line in a mixer and upper PMAs shorter one knot didn’t worked at all. Tips tucking was bigger than yesterday. C even with ABZ and upper PMAs shorter one knot works best for very gusty wind 15-25 knots. I keep pressing my bar evenly all the time to prevent collapse. In case of col...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

Effect of the PMA is small and mostly changes the kite behavior when the lines are slack, e.g. the wingtips folding in when turning. Would consider adjusting the mixer before the PMA, e.g. shortening C by 1/2 cm. 2 days ago in gusty wind (15-25knots) I shortened all four upper PMA. Soul 6 was flyin...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

Grandpa, I'm so happy with my Hyperlink 9m UL, it's my first foil kite. So much so that I don't want to go out on my lei kites anymore with my HF. This season I gave not done anything but HF. In 17 knots it starts to get a bit much with the 9m, and I'm looking at getting the Hyperlink 7m and asking...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performace.

HL7 with 7m lines, UL version mast be quick. Maybe to qick for me? I was using 17m lines, and felt a bit overpowered in 25knot gusts. With 7 m I would be underpowered in 15 knots, at least for waterstart? I still cant see any surplus of UL version in so much wind with so short lines. But thank you,F...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performace.

Adjuster? You mean power trim, Frank?

The same line length for 5, 7 and 9 helps you to adapt afer switching the size? Then a bit longer lines for smaller kites would make them more evenly agile, I suppose.

Re: Kurtis Goggles

I hope they are, as the glasses they produce are true highest quality on the market.

Few smart solutions makes them work really well on the water with minimal fogging only in rainy days.

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

If you shorten the profile adjusters on the bottom skin, it will increase camber and kite will overfly more. You would want to instead shorten the top skin to reduce overflying. IMHO more camber gives more lift. But puts kite deeper in wind window. And makes kite slower a bit. Also more prone to fr...
