Re: FS Speed 6

Hi, Yes, definitely go for the Speed 15. Last week I was testing the Sonic 2 13 and 15 and both of them are great kites and way easier to handle than a Sonic 1 which I have in size 15, but in gusty wind Speed series is more stable, and the relaunch especially the medium wind and high wind relaunch o...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Ok. Unfortunately there are no Hyperlinks around (yet) and old FS kites are more or less out of tune and/or don't keep their pressure. That was one of the reasons I started to move to LEI's. It is of course totally unfair to compare new foil kite to old and used one. I have sometimes almost laughed...

Re: FS Sonic Race review anyone?

Hi, we just put together a Sonic Race 11M with a 22M North Click bar for twintip riding. The click bar was needed as it is a high Y bar as otherwise the Sonic Race is designed for very short lines, and just putting the kite on longer lines might change the arc of the kite. The Y is is either at 6m o...

Re: LE Stiffeners

It is worth to know that the deformation on the Speed 3's is intentionaly designed and if the middle valve is open (and your kite is Ok condition and hold some air) than it only occurs when the bar is somewhere in the top 50%, so when you actually want to depower your kite. As far as I know the kite...

Re: sonic2 9m launch tips?

The best practice is to launch it from the side of the wind window with a launchman however it takes a very good understanding of the aerodynamics and the shape of a foil kite not only from the part of the kiter but also from the launch man. Here are the additional tricks and important points: The l...

Re: Flysurfer Cronix still worth buying?

The 8 and 10m are great kites (the 12 is slow a bit but only because it is sold with the 50 cm bar and it is not enough for the 12) The 10m is just perfect with the 50 cm bar. As it comes standard with 21 M lines for general freeride I would reccomend 2 or 3 meter line extensions. (especially if you...

The Furtive 12 could have been a good kite if it would have 5 strut but it got only 3 strut
Thats odd Skywalker .... Fone site says the Furtives a 5 strut kite ... :-?
The rest of little sizes I guess from 10m down are 5 struts. The 12 which I tried was a 3 strut kite.

Re: Boost2 or V8-9

I have the Boost 2 15m and 11m. The 15M is turning and looping super nice due to the trailing edge bridles, probably faster than a 13M Edge. I am also instructing a bit on it and it also did stand the durability test quite a few times. You are getting the 15 M with 6 meter line extensions, which is ...

Re: Filling out Quiver--light wind

Probably the best choice would be the 13M Boost 2. Other than that any higher aspect race kite would boost you pretty high like Ozone Edge or Cabrinha Crossbow but these race kites turns slower than the Boost and it is not that much fun to fly them. They fell out from the sky a bit more easier (if y...
