Looking for a no-rear-line-pull kite for a girl rider

So it's time for my wife to get back in the water again. after baby / c-section...you get the picture. Last year she loved her Skoop 8.5 because of the nearly no pressure on the bar. She tried my X2 and she felt that it was pulling too much. I have a 32" bar for her so that will help some, but I nee...

Q - lines are really hard on the pig tail connector on the kite tips. They tend to wear much faster than the sleeved lines. If you could sleeved Q lines it will the best bet. Kinsley's price for $99 sounds like a great deal. I use Denema lines from kiteproshop.com. They tangle less than normal lines...

Who said that the Rhino2 16m jumps high? Whoever did it's not accurate. Floaty YES, almost feels as time stops, but high NOT. Rhino2 18m that's jumping HIGH..... Toro2 18m jumps both HIGH and Floaty, and guess what - it even relaunches. Dunno much about Cabrinhas other than not many around where I k...

Isn't Tonga the country that changed its time to 1/2 hr earlier so it entered the millenium first? Their King seems to be a very interesting (and large) dude, with his own basketball team (all 1.85m and above on his team, the rest on the others)..... Sure looks from the pic like a hell of a spot. Te...

Tony, I still fly my old X2 and Takoon from last year. I have them for sale so I can move on to the newer kites. There are a bunch of Rhino2s in my area, so I am fortunate enough to try them out. I have tried the 10m, 16m and 18m. I am not sure about going 12m Rhino2 or Toro2 14m at this point. I am...

I wouldn't know about the Toro2s since I haven't tried them yet.
Our trusted North tester Dwight though is talking very highly of the Toro2 18m. Hopefully one of them will show up around here so we can test it against the Rhino2 16 and 18m. :thumb:

I am 75kg also and 18m works better than 16m.
I tried the Rhino2 16m and Rhino2 18m and I can hold the 18m for as high as the 16m but when it comes to low end the 18m won big.
It also jumps higher, longer, and turns as fast.
