Re: Mutiny Kites P series - 2nd generation

I love these kites. They felt really natural right off the bat. Kite loops are smooth as all get out, and boosting is fun again. Unhooked is easily what you'd expect from a C-kite. Bar pressure isn't so high, but i still find it easy to keep the kite where I expect it to be when I'm upside down. tha...

Re: RRD Bar for obsession

It should work fine. I've flown it on an older RRD bar. As you stated, there are some minor differences in the V5 bar (washers above black and red balls where the safety connects that makes it easier to unspin center lines, etc), but line lengths and connections are all the same so it will work fin...

Re: 2012 RRD obsession help

The Obsessions have steadily been getting more power year over year. I'm now riding a 7 in conditions where I used to ride 9s.

There is an adjustment in feel to the from the 2009 and 10 obesssions to the 2012, but I feel the speed is in the same ballpark.

Re: RRD 2012

I'm basically waiting until I can get some time on the bigger kites, but I flew a 7m briefly in VERY gusty conditions. I think it's boostier than the 2011, and possibly more powerful. I would have been happy on a 6 meter that day to be honest. Pretty hard to rate unhooked stuff, was feeling pretty s...

Re: RRD Obsession 2010

Jeff, Thanks for the feedback. By "oversheeted" do you mean where the angle of attack is past the point of where the kite stalls out and starts to fall? A kite oversheets WAY before it stalls out and falls. I just mean a little oversheet. Oversheet is the point where the kite (or sail) AOA is past ...

Re: RRD Vision

It's fast. Not far behind the religion at all. I even tried it on the slow settings with a short bar and I still thought it was fast.

Re: RRD Obsession 2010

All I can do to help is the following tuning (very simple)- Its hard to tune a kite over the internets. Here's how I like to fly them, anyway. In slightly underpowered conditions, I pull in about an inch of depower rope and unhook the kite, flying it over head. The back lines should be JUST BARELY t...

I will have to try the Obsession 14 since here in San Diego the wind can between 12-16 side on and up to waist high on a good day.
We make a 15 that may do what you're looking for. It surprised me with it's speed.

Re: RRD Vision

Ptraykovsky summed it up pretty well. The smaller sizes handle in a predictable fashion compared to the bigger sizes, just way zippier. Drift is excellent, here's a video I did of the 7 meter in 10-12 mph on the beach. With the kite unhooked, We were holding the bar down at hip height and then just ...

Re: RRD 2012

Yes the 2011 vision got released in the spring and the 2012 will get released next spring. I can also confirm that the all black and white kites at the belmont demo were 2011 visions.

Im travelling atm, but ill get a review together for you, tom.
